This is a blog, where I share my thoughts on the world of sports. I grew up near Chicago, so most of my topics will mainly focus on Chicago based sports teams.

The "Homerrun" Derby

The Home Derby was VERY boring last night. The Derby was boring for a number of reasons. The first reason was the time of day. The shadows were creeping in during the first and second rounds. The shadows affects when the batter picks up the ball from the pitcher. The results was near miss home runs and late swings.

The second reason was the stadium, AT&T is not a homer friendly park. Barry Bonds may make it look easy (maybe its the steroids) but it is a tough place to hit home runs.

The last reason the Home run Derby was boring, might just be the rules. I went to the 2003 Derby at the CELL. The SECOND round was the best round of the Derby. By the end of the 2003 and 2007 Derby both finalist tired out. A solution to would be a shortening of either round or outs? Its cool in person and seems to be getting LAME on TV.
