Boo. Hoo.

Unless you were this fool, I don't know why anyone would have a problem with the reception Robinson Cano got at the All-Star home-run derby last night.

This is, after all, the fans' game, as baseball relentlessly tells us. So booing should not even be more allowed than it already is, it should be celebrated. That's especially true if you're a Yankee in Kansas City -- which history tells us was ill-served by the pinstripes back when the Athletics were still in K.C., and the Yankees used to treat them as a glorified farm team, regularly raiding the A's for whatever meager talent they had.

So, boo away, Kansas City. In many more ways than one, you've earned the right.
