However, I read that Robbie Cano got booed at the derby.

Awesome.

I'm sure it's all KC's fault.

lmao, the booing just happened like less than half an hour ago and you've already 'read' about it?

Chris Berman goes, 'Wow!, really, they're booing Robbie again'?

It was pretty comical

It was a pretty good derby (what I watched of it). Cool to see Harper make the final. Cool to see old man Cuddyer make it out of the 1st round.

Also--why do we want Cano booed, exactly? I never did and never will understand why there is so much enmity towards him, perpetuated fervently by idiots like Kevin Keitzmann.

I get being upset that Billy Butler wasn't in the derby, but get over it children. Cano seems like an alright guy.

Not that I care, but why is Cano the captain for the AL team again in the home run derby?

Overall a good derby. Those fans were treated to a pretty good showing by the participants. Cespedes took some vicious cuts as did Harper. Cespedes reminded me of Vlad with his golf homerun today too!

Mets hosting, but they wanted to go New York v. New York for captains. Plus, Cano has won it previously and is a HR hitter.

Not hard to figure why Cano was getting booed. He is a Yankee and the HR Derby and All Star game is played in the home of the cross town Mets. Nothing to do with KC or rocket science.

It's still NY. It's not like the tickets to the events were sold only to Mets fans.

2 things I have to question though.

1. Did Jose Bautista just hand a Canadian flag to an American veteran?
2. Why does Fox have to have the same music for EVERYTHING? The promo music makes me think I'm watching football, but instead they use it for everything, basketball, baseball, UFC, etc. Why?

Nothing better then watching the best players in the game go at it for a meaningful cause. Awesome to see a standing ovation for a classy guy like Mariano Rivera hard to imagine a Yankees game being closed out by anyone but him. Glad to see the AL finally pull one out this year the last couple have been hard to watch.

Really a beautiful moment for Mariano Rivera tonight. Probably my favorite non-Royal in all of baseball. Class act. Best reliever ever. Congrats to him on a phenomenal career.

Guess I'm just a homer, but my favorite part of the game was seeing Sal get a hit and score. First of many (as a Royal), I hope.

Cool for him to get to catch Rivera, too.

Yes and yes. I was ecstatic when I saw him catching for Rivera. The hit was good too.

Saw a great post on Twitter last night, wondering why MLB didn't hire Metallica to play "Enter Sandman" when Rivera took the field.

My gawd, how awesome would that have been?

It still blows my mind Sal is only 23. He will in multiple All-Star games and will win multiple Gold Gloves. The fact that the Royals locked him up with an underpaid contract is unreal.

The only thing I am worried about is did the Yankees get a chance to entertain S. Perez with the temptation of wearing the pinstripes while he was in NYC. Every since that stoopid Rex Hudler mentioned he wondered how he would look in pinstripes a few weeks ago I have been worried about that. Perez did a bang up job last night by the way.

Great thing about the all-star game last night was all the young players in the game. If this is what games will be like the next 5-10 years, MLB is in good hands.

You do realize that by taking the incorrect context of Hudlers comment, puts you in the same group as Kevin Keitzman. Wallow in that filth for a while.

The Yankees could make the Royals an offer they cant refuse...Of course I dont want him to go anywhere. He has superstar potential.

Would take a sizable part of their farm system. I highly doubt the Yanks have any big league contracts that would be worth trading the Salvy bargain for.

I'm not sure they can. Certainly, the list of one-for-one swaps I would do for Perez is about this long:

Trout
Harper
Machado
Stanton
Buxton

Perez needs to improve his power. He is such a big guy. Defensively, he has multiple GGs in his future.

Also--can we talk about what a joke it is how many players get to participate in the all-star game? By the end of it--starters, reserves, final vote, replacements--almost 80 players (maybe more than 80) were a part of the ASG.

That's just ridiculous. They need to cut the teams down, so that it's a little more of an honor. Yes, I suppose being one of the 40 best players in the league (or just the best on your team) is still a huge honor. But no other all-star game (of the 4 major sports) does it like that.

I like how the NBA does it. Bare minimum for a team: 12 players. Replacements for injuries. Of course, the NBA ASG is a total joke, as far as quality of play goes. The MLB beats everyone in that regard. But at least the NBA gets the recognition right.

The MLB ought to have each roster look like this:

-1 starter at each infield position (5 players)
-3 starting outfielders
-1 reserve corner infielder
-1 reserve middle infielder
-1 reserve catcher
-2 reserve outfielders
-1 DH (if AL) or "utility" (meaning any position) player (if NL)
-Total of 14 hitters

-6 to 8 starting pitchers
-5 to 7 relievers
-Total of 13 pitchers

Even that is more than a normal MLB roster; it's 27. But at least it makes "all-star" a little more meaningful. Oh, and none of the "every team gets a player" crap. I know that that rule has helped the Royals, but it's lame.

I actually posted what I did because of the NYC Mob connection. I dont want Perez to go anwhere with the exception of the guys you listed to trade even up for, and thats not going to happen.

Well put jammahawk. Its not what rex meant by the comment. And I heard keitz harp on it for a while...pretty much trying to get the guy fired for something stupid. Typical bullshite from KK.

I'll follow that up by saying that rex's job should be in question....but not because of that.
