The Home Run Derby sucks.

Is there anything worse than hearing Berman say “back-back-back” six thousand times? Or listening to Joe Morgan and Boomer fumble their way through the commentary?

Hey, some of the players have cute kids; let’s show them a few hundred times! Yawn.

And the “Derby” itself? Brandon Inge posted a big goose egg and the odds-on favorite Pujols had to go to a “swing-off” just to get past the first round.

Bring me back my pennant race. Please.
