    Yay. Such a boring event. Then add Chris Berman's annoyingly incessant "back, back, back, back...." to the sheer boredom? No ****ing thank you.

    Bautista appears to have fewer options than Tulowitzki in rounding out his roster. White Sox rookie sensation Jose Abreu would be an obvious attraction, but he's been lukewarm, at best, in his public comments about the Derby.

    I'm sure Cespedes will put on a show again. I'm just really looking forward to seeing Stanton hit bombs.

    I watch it either muted or with the volume turned way down.

    Good call. I used to watch but would always get bored or annoyed way before the final round.

    It's going to be a lot shorter this year.

    Madison Bumgarner said he wants to do it and so did Verlander I believe. They should have one pitcher on both sides.

    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Verlander? the guy with 2 singles in 29 career ABs?
    Yeah, that's entertainment.
    At least Bumgarner can hit a little.
    Toss Micah Owings out there if you want to see a pitcher hit
    gotta love 'referential' treatment
