    So…the Home Run Derby. You can pretty much guarantee that Robinson Cano will never want to be a captain for that puppy again. The trouble began when he said early on that he would consider picking a slugger from the Kansas City Royals for the American League team. And then he did not. Kansas City fans were not happy. The extent of their unhappiness knew no bounds. And it is strange in a way because the support mostly went to Billy Butler and he became the focal counterpoint to Cano during the Derby. I have been on Twitter for quite a while now and follow lots of bloggers and fans of the Royals and Butler has never been universally loved. Apparently, Butler’s demeanor is not always appreciated. But Butler became the hero to the Cano anti-hero. Being a fan of the Yankees put the situation into a tough spot. I mean, our team gets booed enough without there being added reasons for doing so. Royals fans were not content to show Cano their feelings when he first showed up at the Derby. Those boos continued throughout the event and the glee his outs were given was amazing. And when he went without a homer in the event, it was celebrated with orgiastic delight.

    I got on Ramon Flores pretty hard about his apathetic April, but he turned things around and has been one of Tampa’s major offensive threats this season. The young outfielder may be playing his best baseball yet, though he still has plenty to work on if he is going to make it to the Bronx.

    [QUOTE=The Yankee Captain;8255180]My point is he shouldn't be batting 5th though. 8th? Fine. Coming up with tons of guys on base and batting 5th?

    If Hicks is going to make the team and get regular playing time, it should be at the expense of Gardner and Ellsbury, not at the expense of Judge.

    With the tough Archer on the mound for the Rays, my bet is Hicks in RF, rather than Judge. This, regardless of who is considered to be the "regular"

    Isn't this progress from a lineup with two similar but mediocre lefty hitters back to back at the top of the lineup? Analysis shows you should have your

    Judge has made the team. There is no way that he can be sent down. And if he is on the team, he will get plenty of at bats. They don't want him wasting
