The Home Run Derby is something that baseball fans look forward to at the All-Star break. It is often more exciting than the All-Star Game itself the following night. In fact, I can state that it is, as no Home Run Derby ever ended in a tie and prompted an ignorant commissioner to get involved to shake things up a bit.
But that same ignorant commissioner did find the need to get involved in adding a new rule to the Derby. MLB would select two captains – one from the American and National League each – and the two captains would choose three players from each side to compete in the eight man field. Little did that commissioner ever think that by adding such a stipulation would taint the entire event.
Last night, Kansas City was a disgrace. The fans were absolutely shameful. I am sure that I may hear it from a few Royals fans – although nobody had heard from them for the past two or three decades until last night – but they failed to show any class whatsoever in their app...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Already with a crowd and perhaps a city against him, Robinson Cano turned to his dad for salvation. It didn't help.
After frustrating Royals fans by not picking hometown favorite Billy Butler to participate in Monday's Home Run Derby, the Yankees second baseman and American League Derby captain became the lone contestant not to hit at least one home...
Robinson Cano wasn’t very good at the Home Run Derby Monday night, as he didn’t even hit one single home run. It seemed that the Kansas City Royals fans got to him at the stadium. However, Cano told Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com that the fans crossed the line with their booing when they started yelling at his family.
“This is a game,” Cano said. “We’re All-Stars. And if...

Robinson Cano was shut out in the Home Run Derby a year after winning the competition, much to the delight of Royals fans. The fans booed Cano throughout the day and during the competition because he didn’t pick Royals DH Billy Butler to participate after saying he was going to choose a Royals player to be on the AL team.
A year after clubbing...
Have you ever listened to Robinson Cano speak during an interview? He pumps out decent English, enough to communicate with the American press corps. However, it’s obviously not his first language. That said, something stood out last night on Twitter. Perfect sentence structure. Perfect comma placement. Not a misspelled word that we could find.
It wouldn’t be a big deal that...
New York Yankees' second baseman Robinson Cano is the reigning Home Run Derby Champion. On Monday night he gets his opportunity to be the first back to back winner in Derby history. Can he out blast names such as Prince, Bautista, Kemp, and Trumbo? This segment was recorded prior to the announcement that Andrew McCutchen would replace Giancarlo Stanton in the competition...

Kansas City Royals fans provided the highlight of what was otherwise a dull Home Run Derby. Bitter that Kansas City's hometown hero Billy Butler was left off of the Home Run Derby as captain Robinson Cano picked other players despite Cano stating that he would take a hometown player, they let them have it. Billy Butler has 16...
Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig and union head Michael Weiner expressed disappointment that the Yankees' Robinson Cano was booed repeatedly by fans at the All-Star Home Run Derby after bypassing Billy Butler of the hometown Kansas City Royals.
Robinson, the AL captain for the derby, picked Detroit's Prince Fielder, Toronto's Jose Bautista and the Los Angeles Angels&...
Kansas City Royals fans, upset that after NY Yankees 2nd baseman (and defending Home Run Derby champion, thus -- the captain of this year's event) reportedly said that he would pick Billy Butler for...

The fans in Kansas City were not happy with American League team captain Robinson Cano at the Home Run Derby Monday night. Apparently, Cano had promised to include whatever Kansas City Royal made the squad. That Royal turned out to be Billy Butler, who has hit 16 home runs heading into the break. Cano realized this and chose a team of more accomplished power hitters from the...
Each Tuesday during the fantasy baseball regular season Mike Harmon and John Halpin hop on the internet to talk all things baseball in their weekly Fantasy 15 podcast.
This week the guys chat about the Robinson Cano boos and fantasy players to buy high and sell low in the second half.

The booing of the Home Run Derby crowd towards Robinson Cano has become a lightning rod story, partly because there isn't anything else happening in baseball and partly because the Commissioner's office loves to overreact about the game that means nothing. After the Derby, taking pity on Robinson Cano (only one of the best 10 players in all of baseball, a World Series champion...
Hope everyone caught the Home Run Derby last night - congrats to Prince Fielder for winning it for a second time - that dude is a beast! As a sports fan who can't help but become embroiled in bitter sports rivalries (how excited was this fangirl that the New York Yankees took 3 of 4 games from the Red Sox this past weekend??), it's always nice to see, at something like the...
Well done Kansas City. Thanks to Chevy "Keys To Your City" (LINK HERE) CardsDiaspora.com was able to go to the crap side of Missouri and take in MLBs 2012 All-Star Game. By now you know that it was like run bukkake for the National League sending former Cardinals skip Tony LaRussa out on top. Again. You know that Billy Butler and Robinson Cano are inexorably connected...
