Bring Back the PEDs
Inge hits zero. Gonzalez hits 2. A handful with 5 and a high of 11. Yawn. No theatrics. A couple of Fielder bombs. No electricity.
Quit screwing around trying to market the game. Bring me the real bombers. Mauer? Inge? Please. Half a season of power shouldn’t get you into the derby. I bet they will take note of that for next year. I would have rather seen Thome and Griffey Jr.
You shouldn’t have to be in the All-Star Game to compete in it either. MLB needs to become like the NBA for its dunk and 3-point contests.
I’d also like to see a Home Run Derby of retired players. Hey, wouldn’t it have been great to see Sosa, McGwire, Raffy and…oh…never mind.
