If I told you Yankee's fans that Cano would develop into a .280 hitter with 40 homerun power and double digit steals, I bet you'd be ecstatic. Well, that's what Soriano is right now. I think that's worth Cano and a guy that projects to be a #3 starter.
shouldnt go by all numbers. you need to actually watch both of them play to get a grasp of why us yankee fans are so high on these two. see in new york, players have to be able to stand the pressure. we're not some hillbilly town with two fans in the crowd. not all players can stand the spotlight. seeing a rookie like wang keep his cool and give you quality starts everytime he goes out there is something special. and cano is still a rookie with a world of potential. who knows maybe he'll be better than soriano. plus soriano is a free agent soon. if the yankees want him they can go sign him then.
I have seen both of them play, though obviously not as much as Yankee's fans have. They're good young players definately, but I think it's easy to get overly excited about good young players on a team that hasn't had any since... well, Alfonso Soriano.
