About 20 minutes away from the Home Run Derby on ESPN.

Here's the lineup

Prince Fielder Milwaukee Brewers 59 29
Vladimir Guerrero Los Angeles Angels 352 14
Matt Holliday Colorado Rockies 82 15
Ryan Howard Philadelphia Phillies 103 21
Justin Morneau Minnesota Twins 103 24
Magglio Ordonez Detroit Tigers 232 13
Albert Pujols St. Louis Cardinals 266 16
Alex Rios Toronto Blue Jays 45 17


The numbers after each players teams are career homeruns, and then homeruns so far in this season. If I was a betting man, I would put money on Howard repeating. I think Alex Rios will be the suprise of the Derby though. Don't think he'll win, but he'll do well.

Also, how many will we see land in McCovey Cove?

Said the same thing.

I think its bullshit that Bonds isnt in this. Its shit like that that makes him so hated. Its your home crowd and its the prime event for you. I hope he gets to 754 and someone either throws it high and tight or he gets picked off by some crazed fan.

Over a half hour for 2 batters. Good thing we got to know what Steve Phillips, John Kruk and Barry Bonds are up to. Hey, ESPN, SHOW THE FUCKING DERBY!

It used to be nice when they just showed the HR Derby and didn't have a million other things going on in the background. It's like it's produced by a bunch of ADD kids on crack.

I loved when they were interviewing Mayne the last time and those retards Dusty and Morgan were just having their own loud conversation about Prince Fielder.
