I'm not sure if this has already been posted, but I just heard on the Score that Paulie will help represent the AL in the home run derby. Wouldn't it be great if Paulie and Sammy went head to head into the finals? Nah, I think I'd like it better if Shammy got eliminated early and Paulie went on to win it. Any thoughts on PK's chances? He has certainly been crushing the ball lately.

Sweetness. Has this been confirmed?

Julie Swika said it during a "Scoreboard Update" about an hour ago that Paulie would be participating.

I have someone to root for in the HR Derby, finally besides Frank...

Do you guys remember when the All-Star Game was in Three Rivers Stadium and Frank hit that 500+ foot shot???/

You lucky bastard! Are you going to the All-Star game too? I thought about shelling out some dough for tickets since Milwaukee isn't far from Chicago but I decided to save my money for getting tickets to the 2003 All Star Game at Comiskey. HR derby at Comiskey is going to be sweet!

Who else is going to the derby and where did you find out that PK is going?

It's been reported here in Chicago and I saw it on SC earlier today that he was going.

lol, Can the participants bring their own BP pitchers to pitch to them in the Homerun contests? or do they all use the same person or whatever. Pauly would win handsdown if Butter was tossing.

They said on the pregame show on FSN yesterday that Paulie's not taking his own guy.
