Homerun Derby Thread 7/13/2009

Does anyone care about the HR Derby? I believe I do, it's kind of awe inspiring, despite how icky listening to Chris Bermann makes me feel. I sort wish ESPN would just play really intense music or something and shut up.

LINEUP                                  HR

Nelson Cruz TEX                    22

Prince Fielder MIL                   22

Brandon Inge DET                  21

Adrian Gonzalez SD               24

Tony Pena TAM                       24

Ryan Howard PHI                   22

Joe Mauer MIN                       15

Albert Pujols STL                    32

 

Joe Mauer, seriously? Branyan has better HR numbers and is better looking, well that's debatable. I wonder if he was asked to participate or do you have to be an All-Star to be in the derby? Either way, not seeing him hit some 500 foot bombs is taking away from the experience.

NOTES

-Prince Fielder has a TON of power

-Nelson Cruz was impressive

-ESPN is using some HitF/X or something

-I thought the "call your shot" promotion at the beginning of the telecast made me feel unusual
