Via ESPNEWS on Twiter, Robinson Cano was chosen for this year’s Home Run Derby. His competition? Miguel Cabrera, David Ortiz, Vernon Wells, Corey Hart and Matt Holliday.
With a sweet swing like his, he’s got my bet to win the thing.
Oh, and if I hear even one person say that the Derby ruined his swing, or is the cause of his downfall, I’m going to flip. You hear me? FLIP.
Here’s why I’d flip (well put by Chad Jennings):
For what it’s worth, I’ve heard other players talk about Cano hitting bombs in batting practice. Apparently he can put on a show when he wants to.
