Despite my vows to boycott this years HR Derby I wound up watching it anyway. With the sound off because hearing Chris Berman say "back, back, back" a million times is just too much to bear. Wright was pretty impressive but holy fuck, did you see some of those shots that David Ortiz (big pap-smear) hit? Joking around with MM I said that they should have the pitcher wearing a Yankees uni and put some men on base and then he'll really crush the ball. Another suggestion (this one by G) is instead of this bullshit of having the winning team of the All Star Game (which I'm renaming the All-Commercial Game) determine who gets home field advantage in the World Series (stupidest, lamest idea ever), use the interleague records of the league's to determine that. Makes sense to me but of course it's really not about what makes sense, it's about ratings and revenue. Just like everything else. Sigh.
