    The question should have been "Does anyone over the age of 10 give a flying fuck about the Home Run contest".

    I met Harmon Killebrew one time. He was one big mo fo. When we shook hands I felt like a baby shaking an adult hand.


    By the way, I'm going with Josh Hamilton, despite his mini slump.

    I loved those old home run derby's, you got to see some great hall of famers, but that announcer was boring as fuck.

    id like to see them bring that format back...have it run like 2 months of the year

    it would be awesome when josh hamilton goes to detroit and faces prince fielder before the game

    I got TrumBOMB. Nice compact swing. That will help in the later rounds from tiring.

    So I guess Hamilton isn't in it this year. I'd like to see Fielder win it then.

    I don't like the fact that a few of the guys on my fantasy team are participating in this. I don't want their swings to get fucked up. :c

    Fielder, even though McCutchen has been swinging a hot bat lately.. he's not normally a huge home run hitter.
