BALTIMORE — Who would you rather have, Dustin Pedroia or Robinson Cano? For Red Sox and Yankees fans, it's a great question to debate. It's not quite Ted Williams or Joe DiMaggio, but it's a fun topic.
Cano was the American League All-Star at second base. But Pedroia is the best second baseman in the league at the moment.
Check out their stats for the season:
36 extra-base hits
41 extra-base hits
Their defense is excellent, too. You could not go wrong with either player. But right now, Pedroia is the clear choice given his 1.177 OPS in the last 35 games.
