Home Run Derby & All-Star Game Thread, July 11-12

Seager's going to ruin his swing in the Home Run Derby, and he should have been traded for Cole Hamels anyway!

Kershaw's injury is worse than reported and he's going to sign with the Rangers once his contract is up!

This is Kenley's last year and the Giants are going to make him an offer he can't refuse!

Enjoy the All-Star festivities, folks!

I just hope Seager doesn't put up a goose egg.

We call that the "Puig."

Seager gets 15 HRs in the first round, and is still beaten by Trumbo's 16 so he's eliminated. 15 HR was the third-best of all eight participants in the first round (Giancarlo Stanton had 24).

I'd say that's a pretty good outcome

@Orel It's not the "Piazza"?

Orel said...

Who's that? Never heard of such a player.

QuadSevens said...

Disavowed! Can't argue with that.

Bryant with a dinger. NL leading 1-0 middle of the first.

Trout not affected by Cueto. Single up the middle on the quick pitch.

QuadSevens said...

Smoltz says Ortiz was "infectuous" and Buck said he was second in HR for the White Sox. Good booth.

QuadSevens said...

Hosmer goes oppo and we are tied in the second.

It's pretty cruel to tease us with Dick Enberg in a pre-game ceremony and then force us to listen to dipshit Joe Buck the rest of the game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Way to go, Cueto!

Gnat players stinking up the joint. Fuck them.

Dodgers will not have home-field advantage in the World Series thanks to Johnny Cueto

Posey can run for a guy with birthing hips.
