    Andrew-You are so wrong. To use the term “soft” to describe Cano is ridiculous.
    Cano is smooth. When he hits the ball, he is smooth. When he plays D, he is smooth.
    Don’t confuse being smooth(like Rod Carew) with “soft”.
    So wrong!!

    Sorry Cano doesnt make everything look more difficult than it actually is like Pedroia does everyday.

    Silly Erica thinking Randy Winn might play!

  3. Erin April 30th, 2010 at 4:31 pm

    I won!! :)

  4. Texcetera April 30th, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Cano is the best second basemen we’ve had in the past twenty yeaars.

  5. teddy gbu April 30th, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    yea because cano has more talent.

    but pedroia has heart and trys really hard.

    but everytime cano makes a mistakes, he lazy.

    when dustin does, well he not perfect

    I thought Winn might play, also. I understand Joe’s using Gardner, with the two lefties pitching on Sat-Sun, but, at some point I think he has to use Winn more. Unless, Joe sees something that we onlookers do not.

  9. Joe from Long Island April 30th, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    By the way, Chad – have a well deserved weekend off.

    I don’t think he’ll be playing until they work out the kinks with his throwing arm!!!!

  12. PA Joe April 30th, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    Pedroia never got benched for lack of hustle like Cano did. That is where his reputation comes from, not from making a play look difficult.

  13. Erica - always OPPC - Sesame Street Mafia and GTLU supporter April 30th, 2010 at 4:35 pm

    Is it a little crazy that i just made a note to set my alarm for Sunday so that I don’t miss GTLU???

    Side note- my winning percentage is going to crap

    Additional Side note- Doreen, I hope you are amused by my personal rant about “terms of enderament” in your facebook status

  16. Yankee Trader April 30th, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    Doreen-

    Seems to be getting too easy. Maybe GTLU should include 1st relief pitcher to enter the game and 1st pinch hitter. lol

  17. CRAWDADDY (Boycott ESPN-NY) April 30th, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    I won’t use Winn at the detriment to Gardner, especially if Gardner continues to hit while in the lineup.

  18. tex's friend April 30th, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    i’ll take cano and his ‘reputation’ over pedroia and his ‘effort’ to make pays that most people make without that much effort everyday.

    I used Winn for Granderson

    I had him in the right spot though. LOL. Winn is hitting .385 against Garcia. Granderson is .185 I believe

    I just couldn’t believe that I finally had the guts to tell someone. But then they got all apologetic, and I was, Oh, I understand. But I guess I got the message across because the next time I spoke with her, she used the word and immediately said, oh, I’m sorry.

    Although, nothing makes me cry quite like that movie. My sister used to catch me watching it sometimes and yell at me for torturing myself

  26. Wave Your Hat April 30th, 2010 at 4:42 pm

    I think Granderson will sit tomorrow vs Danks (probably) or Sunday vs Buerle (less likely).

    At what point do the Yanks have to at least consider moving BG to center vs lefties and sitting CG more often than not vs lefties?

  29. Alex April 30th, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    I like Cano… but how many MPV’s has he won? Pedroia already has one

    Pedroia also has 2 all-star appearances and he has only been in the big leagues for 3 years going into this year. Cano only has 1 AS appearance in 5 seasons.

    Pedroia also is a clutch hitter, something Cano has to still prove over the course of the season.

    Cano is a better player. but it certainly isn’t by much and quietly, Pedroia has carved out a very nice start to his career through only 3 seasons. He is also one of the leaders of that team as well.

    The grinder/gamer stuff is nonsense. Pedroia actually gets underrated because people view him as some kind little engine that could. He is a good player and has proved it in 3 seasons now. As detailed above, he has accomplished a good amount in his first 3 years.

    I’m the same way. I refuse to watch that movie anymore-I sob uncontrollably every time.

  31. Hoffa April 30th, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    I think that might even be a conservative statement. Cano is the best Yankees second baseman in the last 50 years.

    You have to go back to Rizzuto to find anyone that should even be in the conversation. Randolph was scrappy and had longevity, but he was no Cano.

    The scene where her kids come see her in the hopsital and she tells Tommy “I know you love me”…. :cry:

    One time, I was watching and I was sitting there sobbing and tissues all around, when my sister walked into the room. She goes “Hey, what are you…” then examines the scene and ran away

    ——————————————————————–
    It’s too early to even consider that. Now you might see Thames subbing at DH against lefties, but his play in the field is pretty bad.

  34. Jerkface April 30th, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    but, at some point I think he has to use Winn more. Unless, Joe sees something that we onlookers do not.

    He see’s what some of us have seen, nonexistant bat speed likely to produce nothing more than some token singles as he takes a hard pitch the other way or flips a breaking ball over short/second

  35. Jerkface April 30th, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Pedroia has unreal contact ability but he is entirely a product of Fenway park. Cano would hit anywhere.

  36. IDCWYT April 30th, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Nice! 3 for my last 3 GTLUs

  37. Doreen - GTLU Standings, Updates, Calendar & Rules April 30th, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Of the 9 non-winning lineups, 4 switched Grandy & Swisher and the other 5 were each unique.

  39. Dave F April 30th, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    If winn isn’t used when he has a history of .385 againt the pitcher, when will he be used?

  40. MaineYankee April 30th, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Alex

    Because Pedroia has an MVP and Jeter doesn’t, mean Pedroia is better than Jeter?

  41. Doreen - GTLU Standings, Updates, Calendar & Rules April 30th, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Erica -

    I have friends who do it, and I even find myself doing it with my family/friends sometimes. But in a professional capacity? Never.

  43. THE TRUTH April 30th, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    TRUTH:

    That MVP Pedroia won in 08 was a JOKE, every one’s numbers were down across the league. The fact that Pedroia won with those numbers and Jeter did not win with better numbers in 06 or 09 is a travesty. I actually think Pedroia is OVER-RATED, much in part because he is a product of Fenway park.

    The Cano/Pedroia comparison will be a moot point after this season.

  44. tex's friend April 30th, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    I like Cano… but how many MPV’s has he won? Pedroia already has one

    ___

    WHAT!!!!

    that was the biggest joke of an mvp award. His numbers were average at best. No way did he deserve that. I’d even argue he wasnt the best player on his own team that year (Youkilis).

    .326 17HR 86 RBI and a .376 OBP. Yeah no one has ever done that. Give me a break!

  45. m April 30th, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    From the last thread. Some Matsui people are hush-hush now because they have enough sense not to cry over spilt sake. Nothing to do at all with how Cano is doing!

  46. Jim April 30th, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    vs. Danks

    Granderson – 1-19 (.053), 3 Ks
    Thames – 1-1, double, (.071) 7 Ks
    Winn – 0-3

    vs. Burhlee

    Granderson – 5-23 (.217), 4 doubles, HR, 2 walks, 5 Ks
    Thames – 5-27 (185), 1 triple, 1 HR, 2 walks, 8 Ks
    Winn – 6-30 (.200), 1 HR, 1 doublm 5 Ks

    Ironically, both Thames and Winn have great numbers vs. Garcia. Thames is hitting .333 with a HR, Winn is hitting .385 with 2 HRs.

  47. I Like Inge April 30th, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    Robbie is better than Pedroia. Only 2nd basemen better than Cano is Utley.

  48. Hoffa April 30th, 2010 at 4:52 pm

    Anyone who would take Pedroia over Cano clearly has not watched Cano play every game for the last 5 years.

  49. Warning Track Power April 30th, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    Winn is fine playing the role of the 25th man on the roster. Let’s all be thankful that our starting OF is playing pretty good.
    We don’t want Winn out there 5 days a week.

    Winn knows his role. He will get an occasional start. Could be tomorrow to give someone a blow or maybe on Sunday.

  50. Phil Columbus April 30th, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    Thanks Doreen for taking the time to do GTLU

    Think Joe would win for sure Saturday. Day game after night game, left handed pitcher, Jorge hurt (will he play) do Curtis and Brett play against the lefty, does NJ play, do Winn and Thames play in the outfield. Would be some intresting lineups.

  51. Warning Track Power April 30th, 2010 at 5:02 pm

    As much as I want Jorge back in the line-up, I think it would be a great idea to give
    him the entire weekend off.
    Cervelli can handle catching 4-5 consecutive games.

  52. champ809 April 30th, 2010 at 5:05 pm

    the Scooter Rizzuto was a SS not 2B…..Billy Martin was a 2B, Tony Lazzeri and Bobby Richardson were also 2B….I guess Joe Gordon would be considered the best Yankee 2B…way before my time but….

    When it’s all said and done Cano on his current career arc will be considered the best Yankee 2B off all time.

  53. champ809 April 30th, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    I won the GTLU too!

  54. TD April 30th, 2010 at 6:03 pm

    OK…I am no expert, I am asking for real.

    I do not get to see too much of Utley. Obviously I saw him play last year in WS.

    I looked at his career stats…pretty solid. But he is alot older then Cano.

    Why is it that he is the guy…is it his defense?

  55. Don April 30th, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    After this year, maybe the comparisons of Cano and other second basemen will be seen in a completely different light. Cano is really showing a lot of power now.
