That's some concentration by Gordon there. Not a gold glover for nothin'....Can't overturn that though. Great play.

Play reversed. laugh.gif I saw on that last replay the rotation of the ball changed/sped up because it had to have nipped the corner of the bottom of the pad on the way down. Umps got it right.

Who you guys got as the All-Star 2B in the AL?

Cano will be the starter, but I think Altuve and Dozier have their arguments. Both should be on the All-Star sqaud.

He's not as good as he should be, but he's still good.

Maybe not being in a hitter's park is part of it, I'll give him that.

Altuve and Dozier are both deserving.

.330 average, been on base 26 consecutive games. Crazy good defender.
Realistically other than HR's can you say anything bas about him?

Cano is a well below average defender now... According to the fangraphs metric, he has a negative defensive value.
post #21975 of 77312
I don't know...He doesn't look that bad to me at all. I know stats has a place, but eh...He gets the job done and then some still today.

And how is his age relevant if he's still producing? Means diddly...HR's are low, but Safeco is stupid.

UZR stats are very volitile year to year, so a 47 game sample is almost meaningless, better off using 2-3 years samples.

Cano is probably average slightly above.

He's one of those no range all arm type fielders who seem kind slow and lumbering but their arm strength makes up for it, like Yunel Escobar.

Did Detroit know something was wrong with prince and traded him?

It had to be the albatross contract more than a hidden injury.

I always think it's pretty telling when a team trades away some of the caliber of Prince. If he's producing at a high level, he's worth that awful contract.

Welp, there goes the argument for Cano's defense

Hate the shift against Albert for the Royals there. And the pitcher went 3 straight pitches by pitching to the outside corner of plate...Doesn't make sense, but it was moot because he struck out anyway.

I'll never understand why batters get pitched away when shifted on. Literally makes 0 sense.

Hoping for them to roll over and get a grounder or a weak pop fly oppo. I believe it's better than throwing in a batters wheelhouse and seeing him hit a blast.

A major league hitter should be able to poke a pitch away against the shift.

You want batters to hit the ball into the shift.

Yes they should but look at the guys who get shifted, they are power guys with minimal speed so hitting oppo isn't ideal for them because they'll still get thrown out. Ortiz will drop a bunt every once in a while but that's about it.
