    Offseason Hunches

    RS sign Cano, and move Pedroia to his natural position at SS. As a secondary item, would add insult to injury.

    Other possibilities:

    Girardi quits to manage Cubs.

    Cashman is finally shown the door.

    NYY blow up team.

    Granderson signs with NYM.

    If not the RS, Cano signs with one of the LA teams

    Drew signs with NYY.

    RS attempt to coax Rivera out of retirement to be a setup man.

    Jeter retires.

    ARod gets suspension reduced to 100 games, yet his team of 50 or so lawyers takes it to the Supreme Court; and wins on an anal technicality.

    Pedey is one of the best second baseman in the game, I don't think they move him for Cano. Sox probably are not going to spend a lot of money on outside free agents with long-term contracts.

    If Cano ever leaves the Yankees at the same time Drew, Ellsbury, McCann and Salty all signs with a new or old team other than the yankees, I can not foresee that the Yankees will ever have a good team again within four to five years from now!!

    Yankees need Cano's bat badly more than anyone on the roster!

    That is why I do pray that no soon to be Boston's F/A's doesnt go to the Yankees as well Cano walks away from the organization!!

    Then u have partisan issues. Admittedly, Pedroia is great and hustles every minute. But he's not Cano. The only other ones in the conversation are Mazeroski, Morgan, R. Alomar, Trillo, White, Phillips, & Sandberg.

    Not me. You. Pedroia has a defensive WAR of 2.4 this year. Cano, 1.3. In 8 seasons Pedroia's dWar is 10.9; in 9 seasons Cano has a dWAR of 6.4. Its not even close. Do you have any statistics that prove YOUR point?

    We'll just disagree then. And I'm not a DWAR guy. Perhaps, if U factor in the hustle, the comparison is closer.

    Its not even close. Pedroia is better, and thats backed up by statistics. You can have your opinion but unless you can back it up somehow (besides just saying so) IMO it makes it less valid. I do agree that Cano is a good defensive 2B, a smooth defender who makes difficult plays look easy. But he is just not as good as Pedroia. And that has nothing to do with being partisan. Its backed up by comparing dWAR both this year and for their careers.

    Watching Rivera maintain his brilliance into his mid-40s has been a treat.  And to return to nearly top form after a year out injured would be astonishing from anyone else.

    I feel sorry for Jeter and baseball if this is the end for him literally or as an elite player.  Not a good way to bow out.

    It's funny to see you call someone partisan after you say Cano is better defensively than pedey. Only people who draw that line are Yankee homers. Pedey has set the errorless streak at second base twice.Even if you had cano and pedey on the same team only one of them should be your second baseman and I'll give you a hint, it isn't cano.

    Re: Offseason Hunches


    I won't argue who is better Pedey or Cano...because Intangibles make a difference to me, but if Cano gets the 10 year 305MM deal he is supposedly looking for I would be completely shocked..especially now that Boras isnt his Agent. It just seems to me that even for the Yankees, you can spend 30MM per year alot more wisely.

    I apologize for stating someone had partisan issues; I just should have said I disagreed. But for the most part, IMO I'm really not a NYY homer, and I don't even like the way Cano plays, despite his talent.

    I will tell you this.  All can argue who's better 2B and there won't be a clear answer.  But after Cano signs his next contract, our beloved Pedey will be far more valuable 2B than Cano!  Cano will never sign a contact like Pedey's for his home team.

    that's not being partisan

    that's being ridiculously partisan

     

    both plus defenders

    nobody can throw like cano

    to those of us who aren't buy them defensive super stats yet

    pedey just looks better because he's a bit of a hotdog

    I mean does he ever not dive / one knee a ball

    he has than unfair advantage

    of being short / closer to the ground

    with them ex long arms he never has to bend down for a ball ;-)
