You all know that Robinson Cano won the Home Run Derby last night.
Obviously, since we Orioles fans see the Yankees roughly 18 times a year, it's well known that Cano is a heck of a ballplayer; however, I had no idea he had that much power in him. Cano was amazing last night and it was even moreso considering he had his father lobbing pitches to him -- a job well done by the Yankee second baseman.
Adrian Gonzalez - no slouch in his own right - finished second and put on a power display of his own. Basically, the National League didn't do much, but it was a great show to see.
Other than that, the All-Star Workout was a mad house and it was something to see all those players up close. I didn't get to the see much of the American Leaguers, but I made the most of it.
A lot of fans were griping about the lack of star power in this year's rendition of the All-Star Game, especially the beloved Derek Jeter (boy, is he ever being ripped); however, I'm excited to see what happens on Tuesday night.
