Cano is over-rated. I fully expect him to bat .200 for a solid month to bring his average back to earth.

To be honest, I don't think so. Of course some of his hits won't find as many holes, but he is not missing or being fooled by anything this year. Everything he hits is roped. Every single AB is like must see TV. Career second half player. Buy Low if you can.

Moyer trying to come in on Cano with a 81 MPH FB = Epic LuLz

So I repeat, you wanna bet a couple hundred bucks that Cano finishes above or below hitting .372? You tried rolling your eyes the last time but if you want to keep saying that Cano is a 2nd half player and people should "buy low" then you have to be believing that his stats are going to improve, not regress.

I'll put it out there again: three bills for Cano finishing under .372. You can have the over. We'll call .372 a push even though by rights it should be mine since finishing at .372 isn't an improvement, but I'm feeling generous. You in?

If you don't wanna come up with the scratch, I'll also bet you a Cafe sig bet that lasts from the last day of this season to the last day of next season.

Is your sarcasm meter broken? How could you possibly buy low on the number one ranked hitter in Yahoo fantasy?

Also who do you keep equating batting average to performance? Why the heck would I measure a players performance on batting average? Stop getting so mad at me because you drafted Dustin.

You buy low on the #1 player in fantasy when he's about to go from being really really good to really really really really really good. If your statement is sarcasm then you'll have to start flagging it in red font or something because it sounds like everything else you say about Cano.

If you think that batting average is not the stat that he is about to ramp up, then let's talk about other stats. I'm fine with taking the 5 traditional fantasy categories: BA, R, RBI, SB, and HR, extrapolating them out to 162 games based on production right now, and saying if he beats those #s in 3 or more categories, you win and if he falls short of those #s in 3 or more categories, I win.

Here. I'll help you out.

According to Sportsline, his stats right now project out to: .371 AVG, 129 Rs, 34 HRs, 122 RBIs, and 4 SBs over the full season. The SBs is basically a gimme. He can roll over that in 1 game. And if people should "buy low" on a "second half player" then you should have no problem putting your money, or your sig, where your mouth is.
