I hope for no injuries to HR derby participants and lots of deep shots!

not that you can see me (or that it matters) - but happy to say i'm actually in that picture - somewhere right below where the outs are listed on that scoreboard.

Last year's winning HR was hit with a stride so short it was backwards.
Which just goes to show you: there's Yoenis Cespedes... and then there's the restofus.

Srsly. If Josh Donaldson gets hurt, I will murder everyone.

From an MLB.com article:

Don't stand me beside Giancarlo Stanton," Dozier joked, "because that guy looks like a horse. He's double my size.


Uh...PHRASING!!

Seriously, are we not doing that any more??

Somewhere, Lefty Gomez nods approvingly.

I love these threads, however my GF has the cord, and I'm going to run out of power JUSSSST as this thing starts. Ah well.

I'm upset, mlb.tv isn't showing it on the Samsung TV app. I'm not sure I want to screw around with my laptop for something like this specifically.

Somewhere, Leo Durocher nods approvingly.

Not doing what anymore? Saying "Uh...PHRASING!!"? When were we doing that?

Said Ripley to the android Bishop.

The official MLB All-Star Game "interactive" roster lists Henderson Alvarez as a designated hitter with a broken place-holder where the Marlins logo should be. OOOPS!

Unless my script blocker or ad blocker is working overtime, there is no additional information to be had by hovering over or clicking on his entry.

edit: #12 gets it. At least somebody did.

It took a few hitters to get someone putting on a show but Bautista is doing it.

"sabermatics?" Do shut up Chris.

Man I was looking forward to Puig. So much for that.

It was when we were all hanging out and watching Archer that one time.

MINNEAPOLIS — Finally, Derek Jeter answered the question nobody actually wanted to know.

A man with a CBS microphone asked whether "showering with other dudes" would be what the retiring Yankees captain missed least about playing baseball on Monday.

"No," Jeter said. "These questions that you ask me. That's what I'll miss the least."

Jeter shook his head and laughed after. When a reporter tried starting a new line of questioning, Jeter took a moment to compose himself.

"I can't even register, man," he said.

The man made things awkward from the jump. He first presented Jeter with a gift, a soft-blanket scented candle from — wait for it — Yankee Candle.

"You spent a lot of this, huh?" Jeter said.

"Have you ever been in that place?" the man said.

Jeter: "Yeah, I have."

Man: "It stinks! Right, man?"

Jeter: "I wouldn't stay that but … "

Incidentally, the Home Run Derby would be about 70% cooler if they'd adopt the format of the 1960s TV show. 3 players on each side, each one gets 3 innings, the managers get to decide what order they go in. Make there be some significant award for the team that wins. A million bucks to be distributed among the winning players' charities or somesuch.

criminy!
   21. Bote Man Posted: July 14, 2014 at 11:37 PM (#4750470)
It's a good thing they changed the format so the hot hitters wouldn't be so tired out for the second round.

STOP MAKING ME APPROVE OF THINGS DEREK JETER SAYS AND/OR DOES

Jeter doesn't mind "showering with other dudes" because he never played on a team with Greg Maddux.
