    This die-hard Red Sox fan of well over 60 years casts the following votes (with his head, not his heart):

    Jeter over Nomie, hands down
    Robinson over Dustin, hands down

    P.S.   Nomie and Pedie are very good

    I think that the forum is tired comparing Pedroia to Cano.

    Did you look at the other threads before starting this one?

    The other thread is:
    Is Pedroia the best hitting second baseman in AL/NL?

    Obviously is turned into a Pedrois vs. Cano catfight after five posts.

    My daddy can beat your daddy up!

    No he can't.

    Yes he can. 

    It's like being in the 3rd grade all over again.

    I wonder where this link will take us? It's a blast from the past. Too bad the past was five minutes ago.

    What matters is that Nomar brought countless hours of enjoyment to Red Sox fans one game at a time and we thought that it would never end. The same can be said of Jeter to Yankee fans. I never bothered to set up a computer model and compare my days of enjoyment to that of a Yankee fan. Why does it matter if we both realized that a uniquely skilled shortstop was on your team? Does a resident of Bermuda compare the number of beautiful days of weather in a ten year period with someone who lives in San Diego for the same period or do they just say that it was nice outside?

    My good friend jete02fan, Cano is the MVP of the AL. He is batting .319, is 3rd in the AL with 21 RBI and 2nd in the AL with 8 HR.

     Pedroia has got to stop automatically taking 1st pitch strikes over the middle of the plate and then swinging at crap way outside the zone. Boggs did this alot but had much better plate discipline.

    From Bleacher Report: If you were a fan of the Yankees or Red Sox in the mid to late 90's, you no doubt took a side in the Nomar Garciaparra/Derek Jeter debate. Jeter and Garciaparra were two of the new breed of shortstop. Shortstops were no longer defensive specialists and merely adequate with the bat—Jeter and Garciaparra were two of the premier hitters in baseball. Both won Rookie of the Year awards, Jeter in 1996 and Garciaparra one year later. From a pure hitting standpoint, Garciaparra was better, at least in his peak. His power numbers and average were much higher. In his first four years in the majors, through 2000, Nomar had a .963 OPS, averaged 28 home runs and won two batting titles, compared to Jeter's .865 OPS and 16 HRs in that same span. Yankee fans countered with Jeter's .323 postseason average, which included a .342 average in four World Series victories, culminating in a 2000 World Series MVP. But then a funny thing happened: Garciaparra started getting hurt. He missed almost all of 2001 with a wrist injury, and although he rebounded nicely in 2002 and 2003, he was never the same after that, playing in only 506 games for a collection of teams from 2004 to 2009, hitting just 56 home runs and collecting a .789 OPS. In that same time frame, Jeter kept plugging along, cranking out 200 hits a season to go along with a .317 average, two top-five MVP seasons, and another World Series ring. The debate is over. In baseball, longevity matters, and Jeter has appeared in 700 more games than Garciaparra, with the gap only to widen. But now, there's a new infield debate raging between the two cities—one that's just as contested. One that occurs about 50 feet away from where the previous one did. Robinson Cano or Dustin Pedroia? On one side, you have Pedroia, a Rookie of the Year winner in 2007 and an MVP a year later. Just 26, Pedroia's a phenomenal all-around player with some impressive career numbers: .309/.371/.462/.833 with a pair of 20-steal seasons Cano is 27, finished second behind Huston Street in the 2005 ROY voting, and has a similar career line: .308/.340/.484/.823. Both have World Series rings. Pedroia's the more consistent of the two; although his batting average dropped 30 points from 2008 to 2009, Cano's fell 71 points in a two-year span from 2006 to 2008 before jumping up 49 points last season. Pedroia's also more versatile than Cano, as his steal numbers and ability to draw walks would attest. However, Pedroia also appears to benefit strongly from playing in Fenway Park, whereas Cano's numbers are virtually identical on the road.
