Home Run Derby
« on: July 16, 2014, 10:51:34 am »
My primary suggestion...what is this "swing-off" shit?  If there's a tie, why not just go to whomever hit the longer HR, or combine the total HR distance and whomever hit it further advances?

Well, that would definitely help me understand where you are coming from on a daily basis, I'll admit that.

It needs serious tweaking or they have to get rid of it. I've always thought it should be longest HR, not the number. 5 Bombs that go 550 FT are more impressive to me than 8 that barely clear the fence.

Somebody who called in to ESPN radio after the thing was talking about letting them use aluminum bats for it.  I immediately scoffed at that, but when I thought about it, why not?  There wouldn't be any fielders to kill with line drives, and you'd see some homers of ridiculous distances...

I figured out how to make it better years ago. I just don't watch it.

Jet: That's why I listened on the radio.

Boots: He didn't hit any homers, so no.   :lol
