Cano will hit 15 bombs this year.


Recommended Posts

Cano could go either way. He is a very good hitter. But a lot of players have struggled over the years trying to play up to their new contract. We have seen two much better hitters than cano struggle in their first years with the Angels in pujols and josh. I think Cano will put it together tho and have solid years in Seattle.

Had Cano signed with us, I could see him hitting 15 home runs. Anywhere else, 30 plus.

all but one of the hrs that cano hit last year would have gone out at safeco.  That said, it's hard to know what the aerodynamics of that park would have done to the distance of several of the balls that were pretty close. 

 

Cano is not a power hitter, but the so-called hitter with power.  He'll probably hit mid to low 20's but it wouldn't totally shock me if he were in the high teens.

Less than a week into spring training and Robinson Cano is already criticizing the makeup of his team's roster and confusing the Mariners front office with the team he just left ... the one that could afford other players in addition to the ones making $240MM.

"I'm not going to lie. We need an extra bat, especially a right-handed bat," Cano told CBSSports.com. "We have many left-handed hitters. We need at least one more righty.

"You don't want to face a lefty pitcher with a lineup of seven left-handed hitters."

Cano suggested to the website that the Mariners re-sign free agent slugger Kendrys Morales, a switch hitter who belted 23 home runs with Seattle last season.

"[Morales is] a switch hitter who's got power," Cano said.

Cano also told CBSSports.com that he would like to see the Mariners sign pitcher Ervin Santana, another high-profile free agent who is still available.

"[santana is] great," the All-Star second baseman said. "The guy's always pitching; he never gets hurt."

As far as Cano is concerned, the Mariners should have been in contention to sign several free agents this offseason. The five-time All-Star also mentioned slugger Nelson Cruz and pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, who both recently joined the Baltimore Orioles after remaining unsigned through most of the winter.

"If it was up to me, we'd have Santana, Cruz and Ubaldo, too," Cano told the website. "That's really more for the front office."

That could very well end up bad and it'd be all his fault if it turned that way.

 

If you want them to get BETTER HITTERS..oh, I don't know...maybe you shouldn't  have 'demanded' so much to begin with.

 

They don't have the money to get those guys (now) and you sure as hell don't talk about it (or adding specific players) to the media.

 

Want a better team? Either give some of it back or you should have stayed with the Yankees.

if the m's couldn't afford cano and get some semi-decent rhb all at the same time, that's their fault, not his.  

 

it's fine if you think that it's somehow cano's responsibility to make sure the m's fo have enough salary to play around with to create a complete team, but it's beyond juvenile, imo.  

 

cano has to know how incompetent they are, so good for him stating the obvious.  

 

If Cano knows how incompetent they are then he signed the contract for himself and not to be part of a winning franchise. So it is disingenuous of him to whine and complain about a situation he has helped create.

 

Maybe the Mariners are waiting for their farm system to bolster the lineup but needed to move on Cano now since he was a once in a long time free agent that helps the club in their long term plans. What they can't afford today may work itself out in a season or two. But they made their decision and he made his to strap the team financially for his personal gain. What happens from here on out, he is just as responsible for the results as the Mariners.
