I said it on Twitter last night and will continue to say it over and over: The home run derby was much more interesting with juice heads blasting 550 ft. dongs like back in 1999. Instead, I’m given Todd Frazier in the 2014 HR Derby final. That’s unacceptable. Little kids don’t give a shit about Todd Frazier. I’m a Reds fan and I didn’t give a shit about Todd in the final.
I want dudes who looked like jacked up softball players ripping moonshots and Chris Berman losing his shit over these guys. Troy Tulowitzki is a nice player, but he’s never hit more than 32 (PLAYING IN COLORADO!) home runs in a season.
Kids want cartoon characters not 33-year-old Justin Morneau with inflated numbers because he signed with Colorado.
Yoenis Cespedes: 1st player to hit at least 30 HR in 2 different HR Derby competitions– Hit 32 in 2013 and 30 in 2014
Cool! And kids can’t spell his name.
