Okay, so maybe I'm a little late on this, but I'm watching some ESPN and they have this thing that went on in Las Vegas before Spring Training (I guess, not sure of the time, but it looks damn cold out).

Anyways, apparently, Magglio won! And I just watched him launch 10 bombs in 1 inning (An inning, for those that don't know, it's just like the Home Run Derby where every non-homer is ano out; but in this each player gets 3 per inning and usually have 5-inning contests). It was ridiculous... Why didn't I hear/know of this until now?

Why is it that I think if Sammy had put a show on for the fans, we would have been bombarded with that footage for weeks?

There were a couple of threads about this when it happened and then again when it finally aired (months later) on ESPN.

Not sure how/why you missed it...

Um...............because Sham-ME* is a big, self-centered egomaniacal camera hog, that's why.
