I really thought Mauer had a good shot until his body started acting up.
As a Yankees fan, I've watched a lot of Cano, and he'll be as good as his lackadaisical attitude allows him to be.
Cano could be one of the all time greats if he improved on the mental part of his game.
For the younger players, I think Bryce Harper and the aforementioned Mike Trout have good shots at the hit record too.
