Dafatone: Marine1: Alex Rodriguez should have been shown the door when he did steroids in Texas, not given a huge contract in New York.

A goddamned third of baseball juiced!

/Jesus!


Then throw them out. This is baseball, not cycling... there are rules.

FriarReb98: Did you belong saying Billy Butler could be included when you already knew you probably weren't going to include him, and probably couldn't have even if you wanted to??
No?
Well, that's why you got booed, farktard.


You shouldn't call anyone else a farktard after constructing a sentence like that.
 
2012-07-10 05:10:17 PM  

Marine1: It's a league where the dollar reigns.


Which makes it exactly the same as the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLS, EPL, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and every other professional sports league in the entire world.
 
2012-07-10 05:10:28 PM  

Killer Cars: Marine1: Again, I don't particularly care about Major League Baseball. It's a league where the dollar reigns.

You haven't been officially introduced to other professional leagues, have you?


Personally, I like the MLS.

Well I guess us cornfed KC hicks should just be grateful we get the scraps from the Yankees table. How dare we boo are betters

Slow To Return: Wise_Guy: All I see is a bunch of whiny hometown biatches complaining about how unfair it is they didn't get to see Cheese Omelet in a meaningless exhibition.

It's funny how on the one hand, it's a meaningless exhibition, yet on the other hand, it's so goddamn important for Cano to pick Fielder to help his team win.

I mean, seriously, if it's meaningless, why NOT pick Butler??


Because he can pick whoever the fark he wants.

Christ.
 
2012-07-10 05:12:19 PM  

WTF Indeed: Bud Selig has already said he will change the rules so the butthurt KC fans will get Billy Butler in the Home Run Derby when it comes back to KC in 30 years.


This is what's wrong with this country.

Well if you know, as a captain, that your performance is going to be shiat (as it would be after an exhausting pre-All Star schedule like Cano had), why would you do that to yourself?

And the rules don't say you get thrown out.

Now, if you want to suspend a whole slew of guys 50 games for violations that occurred before the 50 game suspension rule was put into place, that'd be silly, but you'd at least be on the right track.

If that's all you see, then you aren't looking very hard.

The whole thing is silly. The only reason Butler is at the ASG is because the Royals had to have a representative. That's their fault. Cano shouldn't have said anything about putting a KC player in the HRD. That was his fault. In the end, it was a humorous moment that hurt no one and would be largely forgotten today if the media hadn't needed a story to spice things up a bit. I'm sorry if Royals fans are too hardcore for you with their booing and their passion for BBQ, but again, you can always watch tennis.

You throw the game, you get thrown. You bet on the game, you get thrown. You modify the players who play the game and thus change the outcome in your favor... you stay?

Sounds like a stupid farking rule to me.

I haven't read the entire comments section yet, can someone save me the time ... Has a single Yankees fan actually come out and agreed that it was a total douchebag move on Cano's part?

Because, damn, would I be disappointed in said Yankees fan.


1. Not a Yankee fan by LONG LONG shot.
2. Butler did NOT deserve to be there based on his numbers
3. I get that MLB wants people to watch so they require 1 rep from every team, but to think that the host team DESERVES a player in the HRD, no matter the stats, is ridiculous.
4. The DH is the worst thing to ever happen to baseball. It's not real, get rid of it. If your pansy assed pitcher can't be bothered to hit, then he shouldn't call himself a ball player.

Yeah! That's NYers' jobs!

Oooh you're right. We should shun MLB for another league where pure love of the sport is top dog and the almighty dollar does not reign! Now which league would that be?

Butler has more homers than Fielder. So yes he does. If you want to take career in to count, Fielder still doesn't belong there because Thome, ARod, Jones, Konerko, Teixiera, Beltre, Hunter, Pena, etc all have more homeruns in their career(and are currently in the AL) than Fielder. Why aren't they there?

You know what would be funny? If Wash starts Cano for the first inning, then pulls him for Kinsler in the second, and lets Kinsler finish out the game.

That wouldn't be a douchebag move, now would it?

PS - Why do you think I care about your opinion of me? You've mentioned it like three times now....

I can't wait for the next episode of Ken Burns' Baseball.

"Like a tornado whipping through a Missouri trailer park, the boo's swept through Kaufman Stadium. Yankees legend Robinson Cano, captain of the 2012 Home Run Derby, failed to select local flash-in-the-pan Billy Butler, igniting what is now referred to simply as The Bumpkin Slight. The rules of the Derby would forever be changed, so that the host team, no matter how awful, will still have a representative at the Derby. In 2014 the Derby was abandoned."

Rwa2play: idesofmarch: The Bestest: Next year's ASG is at CitiField. I fully expect him to be vocal about Met representation in the HRD.

Oh that's going to be priceless. A home run derby in Citifield? The winner's going to be whoever manages to hit one.

Hope you're being sarcastic. They moved in the fences at CitiField this past offseason to make it more hitter-friendly.


I was being sarcastic, I'm sure it's an improvement, but would anybody really say that CitiField is drastically more HR-friendly than it used to be?

The Bestest: bhcompy: I watched to see Trumbito hit Trumbombs.

When did John Sterling move to Anaheim?


Oh man, I can see Sterling punching through a straw hat at not being the one to come up with that. That said, I LOVE "Trumbombs" - been a big fan of Trumbo since I added him to my fantasy team.

Dafatone: And the rules don't say you get thrown out.

Some of us have a playoff run to think about.

If KC fans boo Cano and the Yankee players they will just show that they are classless assholes, who whine like 12 year old girls when daddy won't buy them a pony. But they really wanted that pony and daddy didn't get them one so now they hate daddy.

I don't think anyone who roots for the Yankees gives a crap, except to laugh at how lame Royals fans are.


I think it's safe to assume you've never been to a game at Kauffman Stadium. If you had, you'd know that the Royals have one of the most intelligent, loyal, die-hard fanbases in baseball & wouldn't make a remark falunting how uninformed you are.

Lawd, did I really just whiteknight Royal fans?

Dafatone: room at the top: Dafatone: ...I'm not saying Cano's a top shiatter. But there's nobody close to Cano's offense at 2b. Not consistently.

Jason Bay and Mike Piazza have done the same thing. And one of those guys doesn't suck!
 
2012-07-10 05:49:20 PM  
Ya know what? I hope Cano completes the heel turn tonight. He shows up with Chris Chamblis as his manager. He rips up a little kid's autograph book. He sneaks up on Billy Butler and hits with with a steel chair. Then he places George Brett in the figure four leg lock. Meanwhile, the other Yankee All-Stars can beat up the faces that try to come in and break it up.
