I kinda agree. I get tired when they want to interview guys like Harper and they choose to make the screen smaller for the guy hitting. Do you really need to have Harper shown while you interview him?

I watch it if someone I care about is in it. Jose Bautista qualifies, as he is a Blue Jay.

They need to find some new broadcasters. Im tired of making fun of Chris Berman EVERY YEAR.

I eally want to see what the 2nd half holds for him. I will fully admit that I am/was a skeptic and called his hot start a fluke. However, he has held it up for now.

Prince is just entering his prime. Flukes are attributed to either newer players with little background regarding their plus-side credentials and/or those gifted ballplayers beyond their prime years that only show excelled stats either infrequently, inconsistently or rarely.

There's really no flukiness" in anything Prince has shown - since childhood following in Big Daddy Cecil's footsteps.

No former or current MLB power hitters deliver flat-line stats their entire early/mid-term career. Every ballplayer alive has endured thru some roller coaster wavelengths. Prince is no different than all the rest.... all that haven't arrived yet.

I think the real highlight of the night, was Adam Jones going down on a shitload of ribs.

As soon as G Stanton went down, the NL had zero chance. That was not the best assembled team for a HR Derby.

After the season he has had, he should be used to hitting solo shots so this comes as no surprise:)

How many pounds per homerun is that?
