Robinson Cano

Lot of people here left him for dead in May. He has taking BJs place in my lineup at second. Glad I held onto him. Over the last month there haven't been many better then him raisng his BA nearly 40 points in that time.

I remember several people asking who they should pick up at 2b when they drop Cano. I stongly advised against it. As a Cano owner, I'm happy I was right this time. His numbers were insane in the 2nd half last year and they should be this year as well. Robinson Carew can flat out hit!

I can't tell you how happy I am that he owners in my league gave up on him and forgot he was out there. I didn't even realize it until Utley went down, and now I think I'll be OK for the stretch run (at least at 2B....let's not talk about the rest of my injury problems...)

My league is 8x8 and over the past month he's been my best player.

22runs 42hits 24rbi 1sb 7bb 9k 69tb .404avg

I traded Burrell and Duncan for him just before the All Star break. They were just taking up space on my bench. They are both on the wire now, so I feel pretty good about the trade.

True Yankee fans would never let release a Yankee. This guys batting average was killing me, it's just too bad my league doesn't count doubles and triples because this guy is fast.

Depends who you're choosing from. He was projected as a top 5 2B this year, and I think he just had a horrible first half, so I think I'd certainly consider it.

well i drafted him really high this preseason (pick #5) with the intent of keeping him, but now he's on the fringe (because of his poor first half). couple guys i drafted after cano have emerged and i'm wondering if i should keep them over him. i'm trying to decide among: cano, beckett, felix, myers, hunter, jenks, byrnes.

Cano is my favorite
B-Chad wrote:Pedroia's LD rate of 20% is reason to believe he'll maintain a higher BA then Cano. It should also be noted he hits more FB's then Cano, which means that even if he posts a lower HR/FB then Cano, he should come in reasonably close to Cano in HR's
