Mattingly sees need for change in Derby process
LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers manager Don Mattingly had no problem with Matt Kemp hitting in the State Farm Home Run Derby, but he did have some complaints about how it is set up after watching Robinson Cano get booed in Kansas City.

The fans at the Home Run Derby let Cano hear it for not selecting the Royals' Billy Butler to represent the American League, and Mattingly said he thinks they should remove the captain position due to the abuse Cano received.

"MLB has got to take that off those guys' shoulders and pick the guys or not put it all on one guy," he said. "It's not fair."

The Dodgers' Kemp was the captain for the National League, and the center fielder hit only one home run in the competition.
