The Home Run Derby is about to get started, with Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano going for the second Derby win of his career.
“We all know that this is a big ballpark,” Cano said. ” But you’ve just got to go out there and just try to put on a good (show). … That’s a good way, down the line, that’s the shortest part of the field.”
Considering his home run total this season, I guess Chris Davis has to be considered this year’s favorite.
“I don’t feel like there’s any pressure on me to win it,” Davis said. “I think just like everybody else, I want to put on a good show and I want the fans to really have a good time and enjoy it. We played here last year. I don’t really remember it very much. It was a three?game series. But like Robbie said, it’s a big ballpark but for us we just want to put on a good show for the fans.”
