I have never seen 1 Yankee fan here claim that Cano is anything other than a solid rookie and someone that has a lot of potential for the future.. People come here and say that this is yet another overhyped rookie on the Yanks. Whatever. There were a lot of solid contributors but without Cano, they wouldn't even have a shot at the playoffs. Womack wasn't getting it done. I will also say that there is absolutely no point in comparing him to Infante. Tell you what.......Bottle up Infante's stats right now and then look at Cano's after 336 ML games. Cano is a rookie and 1 that came out of nowhere. Infante has been in the league for a few seasons.
Lo, I couldn't agree more. Its just very frustrating.
He's done nothing but play well. Every single player hits a wall at some point when pitchers adjust to him and then he must be able to adjust to that. Its a constant cycle. He swung at a lot of bad pitches early, but he's since adjusted and is now tearing the cover off the ball again. Overall, he's hiting .294 at the age of 23 despite hitting .206 for an entire month.
From everything I've seen of him (nearly every game this summer), he has a ton of talent and he looks like the future at 2nd for NYY and I really looking forward to seeing what he can do with all that talent.
