Vlad has been in this league for over 10 years and still cant speak English?

Major League games dont even go this long. This is awful.

Who the hell was that 1 guy with the Dominican Flag that was running and talking to everyone?


Also I really hate Joe Morgan.

It was kind of exciting watching Albert get within 1 HR from forcing a bat-off but that was about it.

I don't like how they don't carry over to the final round, there was no way Rios was going to hit more than 4-5.

You're actually waiting to see Bronx is Burning Distortion?
Have you ever seen an ESPN movie or production...

Exactly what I was shouting at the TV.
He had on that bad spray-painted shirt that everyone gets in Florida when they're 10, the one of the caricature of them on a wave runner.
He kept bothering people, I thought he was with Vlad but he was all over Albert too.

Have you seen the reviews for it? It has been getting great reviews everywhere.


Anyway I knew this thing wasn't airing anywhere close to on time. It amazes me how ESPN heavily promotes this thing as debuting at 10pm after Home Run Derby. I was thinking to myself they must have changed the rules because the Home Run Derby is not coming close to ending at 10pm. They will say that the Derby ran long, in fact this one ran short. Last year the Derby ended at 11:22. This year it ended at 10:50 because of the low scoring rounds. The Home Run Derby is so overrated. They need to change up the rules. The batters take like 6 pitches in between every swing and not because they are out of the striking zone, they do it to catch their breathe and it slows down the pace dramatically. Plus ESPN gives stupid camera views half the time where you can't see where the ball goes. Every year I look forward to this thing, and every year 5 minutes into it I'm like Why the hell was I looking forward to this?

Reviews or not, I've sat through the Poker series that was AMAZINGLY AWFUL, the Pete Rose thing, the 4 minute miles show, and the Bobby Knight movie.

I won't be tortured any longer by ESPN

ESPN movies are generally terrible but most of them get shitty reviews from the begining.
Im giving this one a chance since its been getting good reviews and its about the Yankees so that gives me some interest.

So far, the splicing between real moments and the fake ones have been awful. The scene where Jackson is coming off the field with Fenway blue screened in the backround was horrid.
Oh and the acting... oofah!

I don't know why the fuck I know this, but I'm pretty sure it's the guy that all the baseball players go to for haircuts.

I'm intrigued by this guy now.

Gettyimages says, "American League All-Star Vladimir Guerrero #27 of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim is congratulated by a friend during round 1 of the 78th Major League Baseball All-Star Home Run Derby at AT&T Park on July 9, 2007 in San Francisco, California. (Photo by Jeff Gross/Getty Images) "

Here's a photo. If you look at the photo it seems like maybe the barber thing is the truth. His shirt has a barber's pole and it says "Jordan Barber"

I don't know why or how you know that Counterpunch. But you seem right.

Same guy I guess. How many haircuts are you getting that you invite your barber to the homerun derby?
