Thread title scared the ish out of me. Cano is on ny fantasy team
I've had him as a keeper since his 2nd year in the league. The rest of my league isn't happy with me.
Kipnis > Ackley
For right now, Ackley will blow up at some point.
Brandon Phillips laughs at this thread. Brandon makes plays that Cano wishes he could make.
Who is Brandon Phillips?
On defense yes, but Philips is nowhere near the offensive player Cano is.
"nowhere near" is not accurate. He has more rbi this season so far, 10 home runs, .330 OBP and. 289 batting average and a few stolen bases. Robinson has a. 019 higher batting average, and a. 379 OBP, but less rbi.
Now, add in the superior defensive play pf Brandon its pretty close.
key phrase there is "this season".. Brandon Phillips is a very good player, slightly better defensively, but he isnt on Cano's level.
Robinson Cano for his career: 8 seasons
defense: .985 fielding percentage
Brandon Phillips for his career: 11 seasons
defense: .988 fielding percentage
Cano has a cumulative WAR 10.8 points better than phillips in 3 less years. "Nowhere near" is pretty accurate.

This. Brandon Phillips is good. But Cano is crazy good. If you cold have your own team & had your choice of any second baseman 99% would choose Cano. & even non Yankee fans would agree.
I just like argument. I'm a big fan of Cano. Love having Phillips a part of the Reds, though. Guy makes plays in the field that are just crazy and shouldn't be possible.
Very true. I'd say Phillips is probably better on defense by a slim margin. Cano can sometimes take plays off in the field & have WTF moments. That's probably the only knock against him.
Brett Boone imo
