Just like if Prince were to enter, it wouldnt affect him at all since he takes a massive cut every time. The guys it affected, Tejada/Abreu/D. Wright, are guys that are line drive hitters, putting the ball into play and into gaps. The derby forced their swings to alter, and they have all had trouble reversing the effects. There has been quite a debate on this not only on this site but in baseball circles everywhere, and I'm pretty sure most people are not ready to dismiss the HR Derby problems so readily. Im not saying trade your players away if they are in the Derby, thats just ridiculous, but be cautious with your players that enter and don't trade for a good line drive hitter out of the derby.
Barry Bonds will sit out of the Home Run Derby on Monday night, opting to rest his tired body before Tuesday night’s All-Star Game....
Bonds will be busy Monday night anyway, at a party he’s throwing along with hip-hop artist Jay-Z.

You don't have to be on the All Star Team to participate in the Derby
