When the All Star game was in Detroit in 2005 I went to the Home Run Derby. It was fun and all watching Bobby Abreu pelt the Pepsi Porch with long balls. And then it got kind of old. If it weren’t for Pudge Rodriguez making it to the finals it probably would have been one of the most tedious nights I ever spent at a ballpark. Since then I kind of wait for the Home Run Derby to be over. This might happen before 10pm tonight, because of course Bronx is Burning couldn’t possibly start late right?
