I think Barry has already said he won't participate. He said something along the lines of "I have nothing left to prove"
Barry showing his bad side once again. Mysteriously comes up with enough last minute votes to start at home, and then rewards his home town fans by snubbing them in what would have been the best homerun derby ever. I hate Bonds for letting his pissy personality keep him from being the greatest player that ever lived.
I think what mlb should try and do is have the fans elect players for the homerun derby. If you refuse to play in the derby, then you don't get to play in the all-star game. Just think of how fun it would be to see a homerun derby with Bonds, Pujols, Fielder, etc.
