I'm not confident that Jeter/Ichiro will get on base enough and Teixeira/Youkilis will hit enough after Cano to support Cano for the counting stats he needs to justify this position.
I'm almost dead set on Cano in my 12 team H2H points league. Although he doesn't have the steals (like Kemp or McCutch) or the massive power upside (like Votto/Pujols)... he's got the consistency and the least amount of risk (that could land him in the top 3).
The Yankee lineup does bother me, they are old and not as fearsome as years past. You look at Pujols and he's got Trout and Hamilton around him, Kemp even more around his lineup spot.
Another factor, I think if he doesn't sign an extension he's golden (especially with Boras chirping)... I'm not saying if he resigns in spring training he's gonna dog the year... but I'll give an extra +1 to his rating if he's trying all year for that 20-25mil per contract.
