Robinson Cano has had a season that caught many fans by surprise. Some even think that he deserves a Gold Glove. Not only has he been great at the plate, but he’s played a terrific 2nd base this season.

This is what girardi had to say…

“I look at Robbie and he has had a great year offensively,” Girardi said of his second baseman, who is hitting .321 with 24 homers and 80 RBIs after swatting an opposite-field homer in yesterday’s 3-0 win over the Red Sox.

“I think he has had a Gold Glove second-base year as well. The plays he has made, whether to his left or right, turning double plays and fly balls he has caught running down the line. It’s important because I consider Robbie to be a great player.”

The Gold Glove voting is done by the managers.
