If the Edmonton Oilers are interested in hiring Brent Sutter as their new head
coach, its news to him. Cameron Heyward Jersey . The former Calgary
Flames bench boss told The Edmonton Journal on that he has not been asked to
coach the Edmonton Oilers and hasnt even had an interview. “Theres been so much
made of this because I went over to coach in the world championship and (Oilers
president) Kevin Lowe was the manager and I have a relationship with Tamby (GM
Steve Tambellini),” Sutter told Jim Matheson of The Journal. “I know him really
well. But I have not had one conversation with the Oilers. We never discussed
this (coaching) once over there (Helsinki at the worlds). No contact with the
Oilers since Ive been home either. They may be interested, they may not. Kevin
and Steve know where Im at.” Speculation on Sutter joining the Oilers picked up
when he parted ways with the Flames this month and was hired by team president
Kevin Lowe to coach Team Canada at the World Hockey Championship. The rumours
intensified further when the Oilers announced later that head coach Tom Renney
would not be returning next season. The Flames narrowly missed the playoffs in
all three seasons under Sutter, compiling a 118-90-38 record overall. Files from
The Edmonton Journal were used for this report. Ryan

of the Yankees Robinson Cano by Kansas City fans during the Home Run Derby on
Monday night drew national attention, and in some places scorn. Fans were upset
after the captain of the American League squad said he would choose a hometown
player for his four-man team, but instead bypassed Royals star Billy Butler and
went with Prince Fielder of the Tigers, Mark Trumbo of the Angels and
Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays. Fielder won the competition, and the AL routed
the National League. Cano wound up going 0 for 10, though, and each failure was
met by cheers. Cano brushed off the cold reception, but others werent so kind to
Kansas City. Several national TV broadcasters, radio hosts and columnists called
the fans everything from “jerks” to “classless.” “Robinson Cano certainly picked
people he thought should be on there,” Commissioner Bud Selig told the Baseball
Writers Association of America on Tuesday. “While I understand Kansas City and I
understand the whole Billy Butler thing, I really felt very badly last night.”
Union head Michael Weiner thought the level of jeering was not justified. “It
struck me that it moved a little bit past traditional, good-natured booing,
particularly for an event like that, and got into another area,” Weiner said.
“But Robinson Cano grew up in the Dominican Republic, plays in the Bronx, plays
for the Yankees. Hes going to be fine.” Cano said that he was prepared for a
frigid reception, even though it appeared to rattle him every time his father,
Jose, delivered a pitch that he popped up, fouled off or grounded out. Yankees
teammates Curtis Granderson and CC Sabathia even interrupted the proceedings to
give father and son and a pep talk, but it didnt do a whole lot of good. “It was
interesting,” Granderson said. “It was one of those things where once it
started, everyone else caught on, and the performance that Robbie was able to do
just added to it. But its like Robinson said, were the Yaankees, we get booed
all the time. Jason Worilds Jersey. ” Yankees star Alex
Robinson sent Cano a text message of encouragement—“He said, you know, hes a
guy thats looking out for me,” Cano said—while several others came to his
defence. “Im sure it happens in every ballpark, where theres the hometown guy
didnt make it, and in Robbies defence, its hard to pick three guys,” White Sox
slugger Adam Dunn said. “It would be hard, man, and its kind of a tough spot to
be put in.” Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun questioned the practice of having
players pick the teams. “I understand why they have a captain, but I also feel
like it puts guys in uncomfortable positions,” he said, adding that hes certain
David Wright of the Mets will be chosen next year, when the All-Star game is
played at Citi Field in New York. “You dont want to deal with what Robinson
dealt with,” Braun said. The passionate reaction by Royals fans created plenty
of drama, though, particularly in an event that often becomes stale by the time
the first round grinds to a conclusion. Viewership for ESPN was up 3 per cent
over last year, and in New York, there was a 10 per cent increase as hometown
fans tuned in to see Cano flame out. There were more than 800,000 Twitter and
Facebook comments throughout the night, twice the volume of last year, and
Twitters top 10 trends worldwide were related to the derby when the final round
began. “Kansas City fans are better than that, but I dont get on them,” said
Chris Berman, who called the derby for ESPN. “I get it, but the three guys he
picked were the three top guys.” Butler, who made his first All-Star team this
season, did his best to deflect questions about the relentless booing. He said
that he appreciated Kansas City fans for their support, and that he spoke to
Cano after the derby to make sure everything was fine. “There are no hard
feelings. There never was,” Butler said. “Me and Robbie are great friends, were
great competitors, and love playing each other.” ’ ’ ’
