Cano is terrible? Are you frickin kidding me? Cano has been outstanding this season, especially as a 22 yr old rookie. The future looks great at 2B for the Yankees and Cano in all likelihood not going anywhere. Cano has to be in the top half of MLB 2B already. To call it the worst in baseball is an outrage.
Sorry but that statement is a farce and just completely pissed me off and tells me you probably didn't even know Cano was playing.
On Soriano, he strikes out too much still for the Yanks, especially with Michael who like OBP having a say in Yankee matters now.
He has the athleticism to play CF for sure, but who knows how he'd actually play.
It's an interesting idea, but I don't think the Yanks will sign him to play CF and they definately won't sign him as a 2B. As a CF though, you never know what the Yanks could do.
cano is terrible defensively. if you cant see that, then you are biased. he can handle the bat though
He's definately not terrible. He's easily better than Soriano for one. I find it funny that you claim to know how he is as a defensive 2B when I highly doubt you've watched him much and definately not nearly to the extent I have. As a 22 yr old, he's still got plenty of time to get better. 2B defense is hardly a problem for the Yankees.
and i find it funny that you claim to know how much i have watched cano... i have seen him in a dozen or so games which i know is not as many as you but in the majority of them he has made some sort of error, i have yet to see him make an exceptional play. i am not saying that soriano was better definsively. i think any rookie that started at 2b for the yanks would struggle definsively. however, i do think that all defense is a problem for the yanks, including 2b
You have to admit that calling Cano terrible defensively after 12 games is a pretty big leap. It's hardly enough time to make a good judgement. He's young and we can look for him to improve all around as he continues to adjust to playing with Jeter, and in the Major Leagues.
i know he will improve and i am impressed that the yanks actually have a decent prospect to call up. just from what i have seen(12 games or so in full, plus highlights of every game) he seems to stuggle defensively. i will say that instead of calling him terrible.
