As poorly as he's hitting the ball this season, he's still on pace for 134 RBI. Don't underestimate the Yankee lineup.

On Sunday, I went and watched Josh Johnson get smoked by the Padres for the second time this year, and I was surprised at how horrible Hanleys attitude was. From hot dogging routinely fly balls to pouting in the duggout. I'm not sure I ever saw any of the other Marlins ever really hanging out with him. Hanley has some serious primadonna issues.

There was that article in an SI a couple months ago about how Hanley needs to grow up if he really wants to be a superstar. It was very informative. I didn't know about the immaturity until that article.

im not sure if i read the article or not, but I didn't know about his issues, or at least i wasn't thinking about them at the time. I remember him getting benched for not running out a fly ball or something a month or so back, but i was really shocked at what i saw. He needs an adult. The Marlins should really look at bringing in a veteran that could be his friend, cus i am not sure he has any.

I've always gone by the "where there's smoke there's fire" line of thinking and Hanley fits right into that. Heard things about his attitude when he was still in the Boston organization and then it reared its ugly head a couple months ago with the Fredi Gonzalez benching fiasco. The guy is talented as all get out but cops some major 'tude :-t

Wait, you'd take Cano over Dustin or Phillips? :-? :-°

As a Reds fan you have to take Phillips, with Votto's emergence he is going to go insane.

Besides Phillips, Pedroia's 15 SB easily make up for Cano's MASSIVE advantage in AVG, RBI, R, HR.

Pedroia's problem has been injuries, not production. He's been just as valuable as Cano on a per-game basis even with the scrap heap of players consisting of Hermida, Darnell McDonald, Bill Hall, Nava, Patterson, and Van Every filling in for the injured regulars.
