Home Run Derby Thread, 5p

A note about Matt Kemp and the Home Run Derby: opposing the idea of Kemp participating tonight is the easiest position to take. If everything goes fine, you can just say you have the best interests of the team in mind. If he gets hurt, then it's all I TOLD YOU SO. Kemp should definitely be playing tonight. If he's going to get hurt basically taking BP tonight, then he's going to get hurt playing full speed Friday. Let's just enjoy his reentry into the 2012 season.

Peter Gammons:
"Giants did not want Posey catching Dickey."

Because he's a Pussey.

"RT @Buster_ESPN: Cano will get booed here tonight, for not picking Butler. A plane dragged a banner over park during BP saying Cano got it wrong. #HRDerby"

A bit of an overreaction, considering everyone forgets who won a year later.

knapS said...

Did the banner have the hashtag?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Carlos Beltran to lead off.

CarGo needs Karina to show up.

Dodgers probably won't host again until they get in line and add fountains, mini-malls, and McDonald's PlayPlaces to the outfield.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

CarGo gets four homers.

Orel said...

Why is the AL wearing blue?

Hideo Nomo said...

Trumbo crushing it

Trumbo gets seven. Halfway through the first round.

Halfway?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nothing riles up the hometown fans like excluding their guy from a meaningless exhibition.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Matt Kemp: not the worst derby participant today.
