    2) Bryce Harper (WSH) vs 7) Freddie Freeman (ATL)
    3) Max Muncy (LAD) vs 6) Javier Baez (CHC)
    4) Alex Bregman (HOU) vs 5) Kyle Schwarber (CHC)
    What's up with the NL/AL imbalance? I thought they took the same number from both leagues.

    That’s how it normally is. 4 from AL, 4 from NL.

    Really weird

    Am I just now realizing that HR derby participants aren't always all-star selects?

    I believe the year Cespedes won he wasn't an all-star. I think it's weird too. Although, I think Schwarber deserved to be an all-star as much as anyone who wasn't voted in for whatever it's worth.

    Sure. I just can't believe I just now realized it.

    Just seems weird that it's not JUST allstar invites, that's all.

    Yeah the last few years I think there’s been a player or two that wasn’t an All Star that participated.

    Not sure what changed their minds...

    Maybe due to so many not wanting to participate?

    That’s most likely the reason. I know Harper is only doing it because it’s in his home park this year, and I believe he is on the record saying he has no reason to compete in the HR derby otherwise

    But I feel good about Heyward making that play, had he been there instead.

    Sadly, I will probably have forgotten about this the next time some knucklehead goes on about how corner OF defense doesn't matter.
    No doubt JHey makes that play. It was a pretty routine deep fly ball that hit 4' up the wall.

    I think the argument is that a corner OF position hold less defensive value than any position on the field other than 1B.

    In my opinion, it's been almost unwatchable since they started lightning rounding it. Can barely stop and appreciate the home runs (particularly ones that are hit very far) and the players just aren't capable of performing as well as they did when they could take their time inbetween pitches.

    Lol twitter fans sometimes. In general, I consider myself to have a pretty optimistic view of this team, but man, I make one remark to a guy about how Q really hasn't been good, or ultimately, himself this year (despite his pretty 3.0 ERA that exists in his last 14 starts) and it's like I'm a troll.

    He's been "awesome," a "top 25 pitcher this year at worst" argue others. The denial is real.
