Default 2014 Home Run Derby

Will be interesting to see how this new format works. Not so interesting to hear what Berman has to say though.

Rain delay at home run derby. Could be a clearing before more rain.

Its hard to imagine that Stanton can hit a Mike Redman 70 mph batting practice pitch 430+ feet without the balls being enhanced, which has long been rumored.

I have a feeling someone told Berman to cool it on the back-back-back junk.

The less he acts as a gimmick, the better.

Bob Nightengale ‏@BNightengale
The players wish they could play with these juiced HR derby baseballs during season too

All-Star Game ‏@AllStarGame 3m
SWING-OFF! It's @FlavaFraz21 vs. Justin Morneau for the NL Swing-off.

All-Star Game ‏@AllStarGame 1m
Last year's champ, @ynscspds and @BringerOfRain20 will square off in the AL Swing-off.

I like how they shortened things down this year. Before it felt like it took forever.

#ASG ‏@MLB 2m Jose Abreu knows a thing or two about home runs himself. #HRDerby
