    Re: HR Derby Participants....You Want

    It's a carnival and I don't care about it or if anyone is in it except a Red... I don't want a Red in the thing screwing up their game, fill it with Cardinals and Pirates, let them screw up their swings

    I think the screwing up your swing thing is overdone.....but it would scare me to have Bruce doing it and then rely on Brook and Dusty to get his swing back. It would take them 1500 AB or so.

    You mean Dusty Baker former hitting coach?

    I'm fairly convinced he's not the problem when it comes to guys hitting

    Now that you mention that, I do recall him saying that. Thanks

    I hope when the All Star game is in Cincy, the players i want to see in the HR derby are..


    Josh Hamilton/Adam Dunn/Mike Trout/Chris Davis for the AL

    For the NL? Jay Bruce/Stanton/Puig/Cano(I am sure the Dodgers will throw their never ending money tree at him).. That would be awesome.. Also I have always wanted MLB to bring back guys that are not in the game.. Like Griffey JR.. As a add on to the Al or NL (If its here in Cincy he has to wear Red)
