I hate the Home Run Derby. I find it boring. I used to enjoy it when I was younger, but it just can’t hold my attention. I did watch tonight to see Cutch hit. I was rooting for him not get embarrassed and to bow out early.
I was glad he hit those two HRs with no outs left to give. I love the guy. He’s a line drive hitter and I didn’t want to see him get a hitch in his swing heading into the 2nd half of the season. Seems past HR Derbies have caused guys to punch themselves out with too many swings in too short a time frame and they struggle to regain their groove once real play returns.
I will watch the All Star Game. I enjoy it. Plus, we need to the NL to secure home field advantage for the Pirates in the World Series.
