Robinson Cano To Skip Home Run Derby

The New York Yankees second baseman says his decision is due to an ailing back. I think it is probably more likely that he found a convenient excuse to bow out because manager Joe Girardi and hitting coach Kevin Long were all over his back about it.

As a Yankee fan, I’m glad. I really didn’t want Cano anywhere near the Derby.
