credit bleacherreport.com Congratulations to Oakland A’s slugger, Yoenis Cespedes, for becoming the new Home Run Derby King.  Cespedes beat out Washington Nationals young phenom, Bryce Harper, by hitting 32 bombs out.  But the knockout punch came from Yoenis’ Oakland A’s teammate, Bartolo Colon, who overzealous celebrated a little too much.  Right before Colon hugged Cespedes, hit smacked the crap out of Robinson Cano’s kid! Take a look: MLB may want to get another urine sample from Bartolo Colon and check him out for roid rage because he is definitely a candidate for child abuse!
