New York Yankee News: Cano, Things That Surprise Me, and Things That Don't

You may have heard, but Robinson Cano set a final round record (12  homers) en route to the Home Run Derby championship. His father set a record for fewest smiles from the mound.

"The best thing is not my swing, it’s the gentleman that was throwing B.P., my dad," Cano said on the field, adding later, "I want to tell him he’s one of the best fathers, thank him for the support and making me who I am today."

If you ever wonder where all the game threads go, click the "Game Threads" link in the small "Sections" box on the left hand side of the screen. Last night, we piled up close to 2300 comments.

For future reference, if you ever catch a milestone ball, sell it to the highest bidder. If you give it back, like the guy who caught Jeter's 3000th, and the Yankees lavish you with gifts, you'll wind up owing five figures in taxes.

I missed this: Albert Pujols is not an All-Star. Something in the world is seriously askew. Someone needs to fix it before someone gets hurt.

Another fan nearly went over a railing after a ball. Do you know why there are high railings at the zoo even when the animals are down in a deep pit? To keep the idiots out. It's worth thinking about.

Would you think about adding Heath Bell for the stretch run? He's had a FIP between 2 and 2.5 for the last 3 years, regularly throws in the mid-nineties with a great curve, and he's headed to a fifth year throwing 70 plus innings. He's a brand name, though, so he'd be expensive.
