BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO is the sound that I've heard all morning. It stems from last night when Royals fans booed Yankees player Robinson Cano unmercifully during his spot in the home rub derby. This stemmed from the fact Cano, a captain who choose the home run derby participants for the AL, promised to pick a Royals player for the derby and then didn't. So KC let him hear and didn't even let up when Yankees players visited Cano's dad on the mound throwing the derby pitches to Robinson.

Lesson here: Don't fuck with a fanbase that hasn't seen a winner in a very long time. And don't make any promises that you don't keep. Joe Lacob learned this hard lesson a couple of months ago when Warriors fans booed him out of the building during the Chris Mullin jersey retirement ceremony.

My take away from this incident, Robinson Cano obviously can't handle the bright lights of Kansas City.
