Granderson and Cano win Silver Slugger

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Nov 02, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Curtis Granderson was just announced as a Silver Slugger winner.

And now Robinson Cano has been announced as the American League’s Silver Slugger at second base.

Both were easy calls.

UPDATE, 7:23 p.m.: The Yankees passed along some of the details about Granderson and Cano’s Silver Slugger wins. It’s the sixth time in the past seven seasons that multiple Yankees have been named Silver Sluggers in the same year.

Granderson
• First career Silver Slugger Award.
• Batted .262 with 136 runs, 26 doubles, 10 triples, 41 home runs, 119 RBI, 85 walks and 25 stolen bases in 156 games, including 150 starts in centerfield. He set career highs in runs scored, homers and RBI.
• Led the Majors with 16 home runs off left-handed pitching, while becoming the first player in Major League history to record at least 40 home runs, 10 triples and 25 stolen bases in a single season.
• One of five Yankees outfielders to win a Silver Slugger, joining Dave Winfield (1981-85), Rickey Henderson (1985), Bernie Williams (2002) and Gary Sheffield (2004-05).

Cano
• Third career Silver Slugger Award. Previously won in 2006 and 2010.
• Batted .302 with 104 runs scored, 46 doubles, seven triples, 28 home runs, a career-high 118 RBI, and 38 walks in 159 games, including 150 starts at second base. His 81 extra-base hits ranked second in the Majors and his RBI total ranked fourth.
• Did not go more than two consecutive games without recording a hit.
• Since the award was first presented in 1980, Cano has won more career Silver Sluggers than all other Yankees second basemen combined. The only other Yankees second basemen to win the award are Willie Randolph in 1980 and Alfonso Soriano in 2002.
• Cano is the first Yankee to win Silver Sluggers in consecutive seasons since shortstop Derek Jeter won three straight awards from 2007-2009.

    YAY GRANDY!!!!!

    repost:

    “Oh and bring back Wang now that he’s a free agent. There, I said it.”

    Wouldn’t that be sweet. For some reason I don’t think it’s going to happen. Not sure Washington is going to want to part with him. Heck they came in third in their division and now that they have Strasburg ready to go, I don’t think they will part with a potentially precious pitching piece. (How’s that for alliteration!)

    This team is getting older quickly and needs to add youth to it gradually before the older vets all fade out at the same time.
    ****************************************************************
    That right there is very, very important.
    1st base, SS and 3rd base are old right now and only going to get older. Those players are not going anywhere in 2012.
    That being said, the team has to find a way to get younger.
    I think the addition of Montero is a step in the right direction.
    If Jorge does not return, then the team did improve in terms of getting younger.

    I can’t think of another position that currently features on older player that has a much younger replacement, ready to play in the big leagues.

  4. Villa Nova-Ya November 2nd, 2011 at 6:20 pm

    Congrats to Curtis!

    I read that Wang wants to sign with the Nationals and so far they want the same thing.

    ***

    People want a younger team and in the same breath they want Beltran (34) who will certainly want 2 or 3 years.

  5. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Villa, if Wang would prefer to stay with the Nats, I could definitely understand it. He is a very gentle personality and I think the temperament surrounding the Nats would work for him better than the pirhana-like atmosphere that comes with being a NYY.

  6. 38HotDogs November 2nd, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    SI_JonHeyman Jon Heyman
    #Nats, Wang have agreed in principle on a 1-year deal

  7. Villa Nova-Ya November 2nd, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    Trisha -

    Wang loved being in NY when he was here, pirhana-like and all.

    I just think he’s comfortable and he’s moved on. Which is fine. :)

    Mets settle suit with woman injured by falling fat man at Shea

    Fat’s all, folks! A woman who had her back broken by a falling fat guy at Shea Stadium has settled her big buck lawsuit against the Mets, court records show.

    Ellen Massey blamed the team for her injuries, contending they knew or should have known the drunken 300-pound fan five rows above her was a problem, and they did nothing to stop him from tormenting the other people in her section.

    That fan, Timothy Cassidy, denies he was drunk, but witnesses said he was so sloshed, he couldn’t even complete the “Let’s go Mets!” chant.

    The incident happened on opening day of 2007, when Massey had treated two of her nephews to watch the Amazin’s take on their hated rival Phillies.

    Witnesses said Cassidy was drunk and belligerent through the game, chiding fans for not being boisterous enough and “trying to pick a fight with anybody he can.”

    At one point, a female witness said Cassidy walked up to her and “randomly took nachos from my plate without asking.”

    “He took I think two chips and scooped [her fixings] … and ate, and then walked back to his seat,” the woman said at a deposition.

    Toward the end of the game, Cassidy toppled over, tumbling down five rows of the steep upper deck onto Massey. The impact broke one of Massey’s vertebrae, and she needed to have two rods put in her back.

    Massey, a lawyer, sued the Mets for shoddy security and Cassidy for negligence after learning his identity.

    Cassidy maintained he didn’t fall ; he was pushed by another fan who’d been chiding him for spending more time looking at his BlackBerry than watching the game. The Mets contended they shouldn’t be held responsible because the fall was “spontaneous and unexpected.”

    Court records show the case is settled, but the amount of the settlement is unclear. Lawyers for Cassidy and Massey and a rep for the Mets did not immediately return calls for comment.

    congrats, Robby!!!

  10. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    Villa – never said Wang didn’t love being in NY. Just saying that now that he’s been off the farm, he just might like the new terrain better. I also said I believe being a Nat is probably better suited to his personality.

  11. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:31 pm

    Did I miss something, or have you been tipping the bottle again?

    WTP…An infusion, in addition to Montero, I just don’t know what that looks like. I am not convinced that AR can hold up for even 140 games it seems as if the nagging injuries keep coming his way which is effecting him at the plate. MT will be fine if KL can get him to stop dropping his shoulder resulting in all those pop ups and lazy fly balls. Nunez or someone else as the replacement for DJ ?

    I thought it was interesting on Francesa’s show yesterday how Cash said /agreed that the NYY brass likes to add a new piece or 2 every year to keep things fresh for the fans, hence RS last year.

    Standing pat next year with little or no improvement will result in a playoff appearance again but the injuries to the older guys will determine how far they go in the postseason just like this past year.

    YOU GO BRANDON!

  17. PittsburghYankeeFan November 2nd, 2011 at 6:35 pm

    Wang is locked up. Too bad the Wang was free for a few days. I could see them giving him a spin.

    For those who say the Yankees are old, it’s only 3B (likely 30/100 in 2012), SS (.297 in 2011), and closer (43 saves in 2011).

    Enough of this aging nonsense. The rest are young or in their prime.

    Resign Freddy, bid on Yu, and find some vets for the bench.

    Post season over.

  18. Warning Track Power November 2nd, 2011 at 6:35 pm

    I miss Wang pitching for the Yankees!

  19. Villa Nova-Ya November 2nd, 2011 at 6:37 pm

    Gee. Evan Longoria only hit .241 this season. Maybe the Rays should think about an upgrade?

  20. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    Trigeminal, actually you might be able to if you want to be conniving. If you had a big fat friend who was willing to conspire with you, you could set up the whole thing. But here are the risks:

    1. You might not have a compliant Stadium

    2. It would take a long time for you to collect (took this lady 4 years and she’s an attorney)

    3. You’d have to find an attorney who didn’t want to grab all of the profits

    and most of all -

    4. You could get really badly hurt.

    You really need to think about this.

    :)

  21. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:39 pm

    I like that Robby got it over the keebler elf, that gritty little monkey. Hope he spends a lot of time polishing his gold glove. I’m sure it’s small consolation to having to swim for cover when the Titanic went down!

  22. tomingeorgia November 2nd, 2011 at 6:40 pm

    Joe from Long Island,
    You bet I am. And I mean it, too. The guy nest to you has to be steady and good, hopefully better than you.

    Tulo was my SS.

    ****************************************************************
    I am a firm believer that when it comes to trading for a player, the Yankees better be getting the best of the trade.
    That being said, adding Montero and the expense of Posada is a step in the right direction.
    Since the infield has 3 “older players” who are not destined to be traded in the next 2-3 seasons, Yankees have to do whatever they can to make sure the back-ups are good enough to help the team.
    Currently I would list Nunez and Swisher as those back-ups.
    Nunez can play 3rd, 2nd and SS.
    Swisher can play 1st base as well.
    I’m just not convinced the Yankees can add another “very good” player to that group without having to give up a lot in return.

  25. Villa Nova-Ya November 2nd, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    Trisha -

    Wang’s personality did just fine in NY until he got hurt.

    He may be “gentle” but he’s a fierce competitor. Healthy, he would do well anywhere.

  26. Villa Nova-Ya November 2nd, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    How could it be anyone BUT Tulo???

  27. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    YAY TULO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    He was mine all mine.

    :D

  28. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    Villa – we’ll agree to disagree. He didn’t do just fine in NY. He was jerked around in NY and the stupid asses who were pitching coaches were messing with his delivery all the time.

    I’m glad for him he’s got normalcy in his life. Maybe if Rothschild were around Wang wouldn’t have gotten injured nor been in a maelstrom of pitching changes.

    Okay?

  29. Villa Nova-Ya November 2nd, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    Trisha -

    BS.

    Wang was amazing until the season after his injury. That’s where the mess-up started.

    Wang got a FOOT injury running.

    The shoulder was a side – effect of the poor rehab plan for him. That’s where the break-down was.

    Until he hurt his foot running Wang was doing very well for the Yankees. Did they want more K’s? Maybe if you listen to some people. But you are misremembering his entire time as a Yankee, and concentrating on the final few months.

    He also had a pre-existing shoulder condition.

  30. blake November 2nd, 2011 at 6:51 pm

    Yay Robbie and Grandy!

  31. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    I’m remembering his entire time with the Yankees. I loved the guy. He got jerked around. They messed with his delivery. That poor guy wasn’t appreciated the way he should have been and he quietly took it.

    And Dave Eiland can burn in hell for all I care.

  37. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Villa you are absolutely and unequivocally wrong! I always LOVED Wang. I recognized his inconsistency but that didn’t take anything away from the way I felt about him as a player! How long have you known me?

  38. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    I said I did not think he was an ace because of his inconsistency. Well check this out. I don’t think AJ is an ace either.

    I ove the guy with my love.

    If they’re Yankees, I am in the foxhole with them.

    It’s hard to hit triples in the modern game. The alltime single-seaon record is 36 triples, set in 1912. Nobody has hit more than 23 triples since 1930. Since then, this 23-triples mark was matched only once in 2007 by Curtis Granderson.

    It’s hard to hit 40 homers, and surprisingly tough to hit 10 triples…

  59. blake November 2nd, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    Yea if course its hard…..but in the history of baseball nobody has done it…..that’s pretty cool

  60. Joe from Long Island November 2nd, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    nice article by sherman, not a guy who anyone can call a yankee-suck-up. just stating the facts. cash has been successful in achieving what he set out to, and hal acknowledged it with the latest contract.

    though, 3 years/9 mil seems relatively low for a position where so much is expected.

    millar seems to enjoy playing the village idiot. he can’t be that dumb. he wouldn’t be able to simultaneously breathe and pump blood if he were.

    ========================

    Nice article. I also found it pretty reassuring. However, I take exception with Cashman’s assessment of Swisher as “one of the best right fielders in the majors,” and I find it pretty disappointing that getting better in right field doesn’t seem to be on the agenda.

  63. Joe from Long Island November 2nd, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    blake – good pick up, about danks.

    warren/phelps/a catcher for danks? not noesi, nor nova.

    if kenny williams wants a catcher included for danks (to replace aj pierzynski down the road), then it gets dicey, because it would interfere with cervelli for coke.

  64. Joe from Long Island November 2nd, 2011 at 8:13 pm

  77. Bret The Hitman November 2nd, 2011 at 8:21 pm

    I maintain Chicago would want a pitcher at the centerpiece of a Danks deal. Their 2012 rotation will be missing E. Jackson, Beurlhe + maybe Danks? Plus Peavy is on his way out.

    I don’t see how they can trade Danks and not get back at least one solid pitcher.

    I think Noesi or Hughes would have to be the centerpiece. Chi would probably demand Nova.

    They might want a bat on top of it: either Nunez/Romine.

  80. Joe from Long Island November 2nd, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    bret, nova and/or hughes could have just as good a season as danks. while chisox might start off asking for that, i’d pass on it.

  81. trisha - true pinstriped blue November 2nd, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    “Rosenthal said on hot stove that a team tried to trade for AJ last winter.”

    Yanks didn’t bite because they had a feeling that by 2012, he would be the pitcher they traded for.

    You, know. Williams has been known to make some questionable trades. And the Yankees have dealt with him in the past. Maybe he looks at some of the good pitching we have in the system and we can make a trade.

  89. Deal With It November 2nd, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    I am a firm believer that when it comes to trading for a player, the Yankees better be getting the best of the trade.

    That being said, adding Montero and the expense of Posada is a step in the right direction.
    Since the infield has 3 “older players” who are not destined to be traded in the next 2-3 seasons, Yankees have to do whatever they can to make sure the back-ups are good enough to help the team.

    Currently I would list Nunez and Swisher as those back-ups.
    Nunez can play 3rd, 2nd and SS.
    Swisher can play 1st base as well.

    I’m just not convinced the Yankees can add another “very good” player to that group without having to give up a lot in return.

    ==================

    WTP….Agree about JM for JP. a step in the rite direction. NYY’s r dealing from a position of strength now which Cash himself has said. I was thinking along the lines of other teams coming to Cash and asking for pitching (surplus of young talent presently in the ML) perhaps adding in Romine can get a good return from another team in the rebuild mode, after all I believe NS will be gone during this year or after as the NYY won’t want to up the ante to $14 -15 mil. next year. Your thoughts ?

    Agree about NS and EN as the backups. Too bad Cash didn’t make a move for Pence last year when he was made available. A nice player who would probably benefit from having better players hitting in front and behind him, better than what he has in Phily now. Beltran played around 145 games last year and might be a good fit with JG rest and recover rotation, Willingham had around 100 RBI’s with the lowly A’s.

    Love the ‘older’ player reference BTW.
