Oh my God, who the hell cares? Seriously, how can anyone complain about a Yankee getting booed? Are y'all new to sports or something, the Yankees are dicks.

Wise_Guy: That's quite the biased view you have.

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.

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.

Rex_Banner: But that would mean.... Waldman in the booth by herself! DEAR GOD WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?!?!?!?

Baseball needs an announcer exchange program.
I'd listen to a Hawk Harrelson/Suzyn Waldman booth once (and only once) for the hilarity.

Di Atribe: IAmRight: Di Atribe: Disagrees

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. =)

Excuse me? Fark you very much. That was out of line.

No Di he's right. Since we've only been watching/supporting Rangers baseball for 40 years, we're bandwagonners.

If Yankees fans get this worked up over a few Bronx cheers, maybe they should switch to tennis.

Wise_Guy: EyeballKid: The Bestest: You're seriously gonna make an argument against -Jeter- for the Hall?

I'll say if Jeter either A) hadn't been surrounded by cheaters and out-and-out scumbags with the Yankees or B) played for a small-market team, he wouldn't have lasted more than 5 seasons in the bigs. Bernie Williams and Tino Martinez did more for those World Series wins than "The Captain" did. He just happened to benefit from a brighter spotlight and a lowered bar.

Yeah. I'm curious-- during which of those first five seasons would have replaced him: Link

If he were a Pirate, they would have sent him to Triple-A for being too good and replaced him with someone who sucked

Killer Cars: That said, he has a Griffey-esque flair to how he actually plays the game.

I think that means something different in Seattle than it does in Cincinnati. Unless you're saying that he gets injured more often than Mr. Glass.

EyeballKid: nobody past the Brooklyn Bridge thinks your second baseman is HOF material.

Well, he's certainly no Billy Butler.

You poor, long suffering Yankee fans. However will you cope? A grown man who plays a child's game for a living got booed by the fans of a rival team! The horror.

The Bestest: He did say "I don't care about the fans" in an interview AFTER he took his swings, but it was in the context of "he didn't care that they were booing". Very poorly worded yes, but his English isn't the greatest and context is everything.

Why use that thing called "context" when you can just take a few words at random and attribute them to someone with a tenuous grasp of the English language to prove that you as a city were slighted by the dastardly Robinson Cano and the Evil Empire.

The Bestest: GoodyearPimp: 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.

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.

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