2B- Robinson Cano. Cano has always hit well on the road, but losing that short porch in left does put a slight dent into his numbers. Couple that with the fact the Mariners lineup is a big step down from the Yankees, along with my gut feeling of a bad luck BABIP year/good run of health coming to an end, Robbie finds himself hovering around #10.

The park hurts but I don't think the lineup difference is that huge.
RBI Opportunities

Not world beaters. And look at who hit behind him last year...

I think the lineup won't impact him much at all. Park yes, but at least he gets to face Astro's pitching. :-)

Yeah, the lineup isn't all that different. Clay Davenport projects the Yankees and Mariners to essentially score the same amount of runs (~695). Of course, we should consider that Cano himself is worth ~30 Runs Above Average on offense, so the Mariners are worth 30 runs less than the Yankees with him excluded. Not a huge difference. And of course, the park change hurts him.
