Former MLB/Astro, Jose Cano pitched to his son, Robinson Cano during the home run derby.

Is this the first time a father has pitched to his son at the HRD?

After watching how far some of those balls flew, it seems to me that Cano could easily hit .260 with 40 HR if he so desired, but swings to hit .320 with 25 HR. He's everything that Soriano was supposed to be for NYY.

Congrats to Cano. One hell of an all-round ball player.

I liked how it was a father/son team that emerged victorious.

It was pretty neat watching father and son. Jose must have thrown 80+ pitches by the end of the contest.

Cano and Gonzo put on a great show. But it was almost spoiled by Berman's histrionics both during the preliminaries and leading up to the Yankees vs. Sawx final round.

Berman has been ruining the HR Derby for years. I cannot believe that he still is on the broadcast team for it. It is not 1992 anymore.

Bingo. The sportscasting world has moved so far beyond him that it's amazing that they still let him do it.

I don't see him do much else--does he regularly do football stuff in the studio still?
