What a hell of a year for Robinson Cano, huh? “You thought 2009 was good?” Robbie said. “You haven’t seen anything yet.” While we could hardly say he came out of nowhere to play as well as he did in 2010. His .389 wOBA bested his previous career high by 12 points. His 145 wRC+ beat his career best by 15 points. He set new career highs in home runs, runs batted in, walk rate, and isolated power. He had his second straight season of 200 hits (204 in ’09) and just dazzled us at the plate.
For this post, I’m going to take Robbie’s median projections and compare them to his actual production.
Hits: 182 (200)
Home Runs: 20 (29)
RBI: 85 (109)
BB: 31 (57)
SO: 69 (77)
BA: .305 (.319)
OBP: .342 (.381)
IsoD*: .037 (.062)
SLG: .489 (.534)
IsoP* .184 (.214)
wOBA: .359 (.389)
wRC: 88.7 (118.2)
wRAA: 15.7 (38.3)
*Computed using median BA, OBP, and SLG.
Anyway, there’s no way you can say anything went wrong for Cano at the plate this year. He absolutely obliterated his projections. For us to expect 2010 to be the norm for Cano from here on out is definitely unfair to him, but I don’t doubt that he can, at the very least, come close to the marks he set in 2010.
