Last night’s Home Run Derby was a rain-soaked bore of epic proportions. What happened to this event? I feel like it used to be awesome and now it’s a chore to sit through the damn thing.
The most compelling moment was when Miami Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton came this close to hitting a ball out of Target Field.
Wow. I’m going to wager 90 percent of the people reading this can’t hit a baseball half as far.
Also, they should determine the Derby winner by who hits the longest home run. That’s change we can all get behind.
Make it happen, Major League Baseball.
