I don't mind Cutch being in the HR derby, but come on Kemp, you still have a chip on your shoulder from Braun winning the MVP, don't you?

I understand Greinke was mad at himself, but when was the last time someone spiked a ball on the ground like that and didn't get tossed? That was just stupid to begin with. Could have cost him an extra base. Can't really blame the umps for not knowing Greinke was mad at himself.

Three starts in a row does seem insane.


When has a batter done virtually the same with a bat and got tossed?

I am a Dodger fan & a Kemp owner. I'm not thrilled about it, but whatev. This season has sucked anyway. My fantasy team blows and the Dodgers are in over their heads. All that means is that they'll sell the farm for Victorino or Dempster & attempts to have a half-assed run. Whether they go one way or the other the end result won't be a Championship.

Nice troll job, bro.

I remember when I was like 10 and I loved hearing Berman call the HR Derby... now it's unbearable...

That brings me to another point. The Orange Gatorade phenomenon. Everybody who's anybody knows that orange is the best tasting Gatorade, but I've also hypothesized that it's infused with HGH, especially for the Home Run Derby. In something like 4 of the last 5 or 5 of the last 6 Derbies, the champion has been drinking orange Gatorade. So if you're gambling tonight, pay close attention to what they're sipping on -- orange Gatorade never fails. Wouldn't surprise me if Jose Bautista was guzzling it as I'm typing this...

Highlights so far:
- Andrew McCutchen's reaction of complete 'wtf' to the Zac Brown Band, followed by the entire stadium's dead silence
- Matt Kemp sounds like he hasn't gone through puberty yet, WTF??? :-S

one of the things I like about the AS break is it allows me to almost relax for 2-3 days in fantasy baseball without going so hard. it's tough and sometimes mentally draining being competitive in multiple leagues at the same time.
12 team non keeper league where we play with basically the same people, I'm in 2nd place 10.5 points behind. (won the league previous 2 seasons)
16 team keeper league 1st season. 1st place with 8 point lead.
I guess I'm not usually wrong most of the time.

sometimes players in the HR derby tend to fade in the 2nd half because they change their swing. I guess I'm happy to say I don't own anyone in this seasons HR derby.
