Maybe Cano (7 HR road, 14 HR home) wasn't really qualified to be "home run derby" anyway. Take them out of that little concrete home run locker they built to replace Yankee Stadium, and see how well they do. Answer, not very.

Nice try, 3/10.

I bet if he'd hit a few out of the park, the boos would've subsided.

I felt bad for him but I also laughed. Seems the fans were butthurt because no Royal was invited to participate? Butler or whomever? But I'm gonna guess it's due to the "Don't have as many homeruns" factor.

I kinda wonder why Hamilton wasn't in there.

HR Derby was only fun when everyone was on 'roids.

You only disagree because you started caring about baseball when the Rangers got competent. And even he thinks it sucks, which is why he declined to participate this year. =)

Whether he's a Yankee or not, whether he hit any HRs or not (and he won the HR Derby last year, which wasn't at Yankee Stadium), why boo at an exhibition game or event? It's classless no matter where it's occurring, or who it's occurring to. This was a fun competition, not something with life or death consequences. Tacky fans are tacky.

That's sorta true for the All Star game too. I love a pitching war as much as the next guy but it isn't quite the same with so many different starters briefly throwing in one game.

Well he can't just come out and say it sucks. But I think we know what he meant.

Why? There's nothing wrong with it. Baseball's only worth watching when the local team is good. Otherwise it's a boring crapfest.

No, that's impossible.....

Hey, another thread!
Just copy/paste from the Derby thread, where there's maybe 100 posts about the derby itself and 400+ arguing over Cano.

Absolutely agree. The fact that the booing didn't stop from his introduction to his time at bat made the whole thing uncomfortable. I usually enjoy watching to see the players (including those not participating but just watching with their kids) and it was just a bad mood. I wonder how many people ended up turning the channel...we did.

What's the point of the HR derby other than putting on a show for the audience? Pick someone from the host team next year, idiots.
 
2012-07-10 02:54:58 PM  
Outside of the AL East why would any team's fans care about the Yankees. Who else have they really messed with recently? Oakland maybe had a gripe ten years ago.

Right, because ONLY those in KC got to see it. It wasn't on ESPN or anything.

Host team next year is the Mets btw, and I guaran-damn-tee you that if the NYC crowd boo'd the NL captain for not picking a Met, everyone would be taking the captain's side, not the crowd's.

The issue wasn't so much about the Yankees as it was the AL team captain didn't pick the local boy who is 16th in the league in homerruns to fill out a 4 man squad in a homerun hitting contest. The Yankees thing is just spice.

ANOTHER YANKEES FAN COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW MISTREATED THEY ARE WONK WONK

So the folks who invested nothing (watching on TV) in the event are upset because their beloved Yankee got booed? So upset that they had to turn the channel to not feel uncomfortable?
 
2012-07-10 03:01:53 PM  
The fans at the K were in the right. Made my points in other thread see them there.

To put on a show for the audience? Audiences like shows. I like shows. If Cano came out & hit 50 home runs, I would've loved it, even though the Yankees suck.

That was the last HR derby I actually watched, and even that was sort of a fluky "wow, I literally have NOTHING better to do tonight, so I guess I'll watch..."

I think last evening I opted instead to reorganize my spice rack and measure the blades of grass in the front lawn.

I said this in the other thread, and have been called a Yankee homer who only wants to see Yankees in the Yankee Derby, but I'll try again:

The fans in KC wanted to see their guy, which I understand, but national fans would have chosen Cano, Trumbo, Bautista, and Fielder (plus a handful of other guys) over Bulter (who I've got nothing against - he's a fine player, just not at the top level). Putting Bulter in over any of them makes KC fans happy, but other fans watching on TV would have rather seen someone else. If it's about fans, we should consider ALL fans, not just the 40,000 in the building

Maybe the rest of the nation is tired of hearing about your team anymore and all the fellation, and NY fan ejaculation over them? It's your team, enjoy and know every detail about them that can be known but maybe some of us are just tired of hearing all about a team thousands of miles away we don't give a shiat about. Which doesn't make me a hater, it makes me tired of oversaturation.

Considering that Butler has more homers then Prince and he's the face of KC right now they got a legit beef.

Kansas City has hated the Yankees ever since they were the defacto farm system for the Yankees starting in the 50's with the Athletics. Any Yankee fan who was upset about the fans booing Cano last night knows nothing about the history of the Yankees.

Maybe Cano is friends with Prince. Maybe he wanted a rematch from last year. Who knows.

Either way, your guy didn't get picked, nor would he have had Prince declined.

Get over it.
