I was just coming to comment on this. damn the crowd is so hot for Cano. loudest of the night, cheering for every out. I guess I hadn't been paying attention, didn't know it was because he didn't pick Butler.

KC fans have basically been building up for that all week. How tough would it have been to have a Royal in the Derby?
It was Ortiz, I think, who got the same treatment in Arizona when he didn't put Justin Upton on the team. It's a fool's choice to not get a hometown guy on the team, if at all possible.

Also, Adam Jones is going H.A.M. on those ribs.

Cuz its a game and the all star game is a game for the fans and as a fan I want to see Kemp hit Hrs in the derby. I get disappointed when players don't want to participate in the game and would rather have the days off to rest, and it seems to happen enough so that when a player is pulled to an injury or some other reason it kind of makes them look bad, hurt or not. If I were the Dodgers I'd say hey if you can stand you can hit - go play in the derby.

One of these years someone on a contender is going to go down for the season with an injury sustained during the AS game. My thoughts on when it does happen: Hey how do you know he wouldn't have hurt himself moving boxes at home, or jumping on a trampoline with kids, or rolling over in his sleep falling out of bed and landing on a glass? All these things have happened before. Trying to avoid injury by not doing what fans pay you to do just doesn't fly with me, sorry. Never will.

Just my very biased and completely meaningless 2c.

In my defense, I was reacting not to the fact that downs and frieri could be in a time share, but the ridiculous constant posting of the same incessant nonsense over and over again. He grabbed onto something one guy said about frieri being as good as jansen, and repeated over and over again stats that no one disagreed with. No one thought that frieri would never give up a run. Actually, earlier in the thread I agreed with him about the time share and felt that downs still had plenty of value if he only closed one game a week from here on out.


...hopefully, I've stirred the pot enough again.

With the whole ribs thing, I think AJ10 has solidified his spot as my favorite player.

The main betting agency here had Fielder at 15 to 1 to win the HR Derby just before Cano came up for his turn. Now they have him 1 to 2 on. No clue.

Very entertaining derby so far. Jo-Bot makes it in dramatic fashion over surprising Trumbo to face the Bocanator in the finals.

It's not uncommon for lines to shift if they're betting Live, and didn't shut it down when the Derby started. Still, Joey Bats is taking this thing.
