Hehe. I just found this statement humorous (especially if true). Asians are only allowed one country?

It would be funny to see him in a homerun derby, because he is already running towards first base on his swing... I wonder if he would change it a little, or just take a few steps towards first base on each swing... lol :-?

South Korea and Japan are obviously two different countries. Why can't Ichiro and Choi be in it. There are more japanese players than korean players anyway.
Finally The Rock has come back....to New York City!!

If we need a foreigner for the HR derby why not Chan Ho Park? He can throw to the other 7 contestants :-b .

Did they ask Matsui? If not, they should've over Choi. Maybe neither are all-stars, but Matsui is more deserved than Hee Seop, a guy who's accomplished next to nothing.

My first preference is to have 100% all-stars though. I don't like the idea of non-allstars in the derby.

I think that's a huge overstatement.
