    Any predictions? I have a Chris Davis vs Pedro Alvarez final with Alvarez winning. I always enjoy this event. I know Berman will get trashed on Twitter and on message boards tonight but there is some sort of nostalgia with him announcing these.

    Is there any way in hell Davis isn't juicing?

    I predict everyone will be annoyed with Chris Berman before the first batter has completed the first round.

    Wow great lip syncing performance by Pitbull! That's the best the MLB could come up with? When will Chris Berman get fired? Most annoying person on TV

    the scrum in the outfield by the kids trying to catch the non-home runs is pretty entertaining at times.

    Yoenis Cespedes just won, over Bryce Harper in the final.

    I don't understand the Harper hate. He's an absolute blast to watch...wish everyone played their *** off like he does.

    Harper's swing just makes my body hurt. Cespedes has a beautiful baseball swing.

    I refer to Harper as Scrappy no' tools. Because he is scrappy and has almost no elite baseball tools.

    No elite baseball tools?! You have to be joking. This guy has the fastest bat speed, a tremendous arm, great speed, a fantastic glove, hussels, and does everything years beyond his age.

    Back to Derby talk, I'm glad Cespedes won. I'm an A's fan and the way he hit the ball tonight gives me confidence he can turn things around in the second half of the season.

    Yeah, Harper OPS'd .817 and posted a 5.0 WAR as a 19 year old and is OPS'ing .893 this year....but he doesn't have elite tools. That's a clown statement, bro.
