Home Run Derby!

I never think I'm going to enjoy the Home Run Derby. It just seems silly and it doesn't always feature the greatest home run hitters in the game (Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, and Justin Morneau have all said they're not interested). But when I start watching it I almost always enjoy it. It's more because of the players on the sidelines with their video cameras and their kids running around and all that good stuff. 

Participants this year include: David Ortiz, Miguel Cabrera, Matt Holliday, Corey Hart, Vernon Wells, and Hanley Ramirez. Robinson Cano was supposed to participate but the Yankees won't let him.
