I don't know if I like the brackets or not. Just seems weird to me.

Vanilla ESPN or Statcast?
 
2022-07-18 8:06:49 PM  
Maybe ESPN cause the sound on Statcast is wonky

Juan Soto didn't like the heat from the pyro
 
2022-07-18 8:09:10 PM  
That's a rough anthem.
 
2022-07-18 8:09:14 PM  
This anthem is real bad

And a BUFF flyover, that's pretty cool

Another murder of the national anthem. Just sing the damn notes and nothing but the notes.

Steph Curry hosting the ESPYS is going to be a trainwreck

Also, buried in the new labor agreement was this: if tomorrow's ASG is tied after 9 innings; it's Home Run Derby to decide the winner. Each team nominates 3 batters + 1 alternate in case of injury. Each get 3 swings, most HRs among each team's 3 batters wins. If there's a tie after the batters, it's 1 v 1 until the tie is broken.

The batters in case it's needed:

AL: Ty France, Julio Rodríguez, Kyle Tucker
NL: Pete Alonso, Ronald Acuña Jr., Kyle Schwarber

Maybe it's an unofficial audition for his post-playing career.

I need to know how long that would if measured in bananas
 
2022-07-18 8:22:25 PM  
I don't know why, but I always loved the kids in the outfield of this.
 
2022-07-18 8:22:31 PM  
I can't hear the statcast at all over the stadium

Talk about setting a number.

Good luck Seager. Got damn.

Yeah that makes total sense, I switched over to ESPN regular
 
2022-07-18 8:29:26 PM  
Seager isn't beating that.
 
2022-07-18 8:29:28 PM  
In the previous HRD format, that would have basically killed the rest of the field. Of course, it also would have taken a half-hour...
 
2022-07-18 8:31:22 PM  
I counted it up: 52 total swings, 32 homers. Longest streak of homers: 9 straight swings. Longest streak with no homers: 3 swings (3 times).
 
2022-07-18 8:31:54 PM

The only player ever to mash more HR in any Derby first round than Julio's 32:
Pete Alonso last year with 35.
What. A. Debut.
 
2022-07-18 8:32:49 PM  
That's cool having your dad throw to ya. Sucks it's only going to be one round b

Nice moment for Cory but now it's PETE time

The fact that it feels really good to be a Mariners fan right now is WEIRD AND UNCOMFORTABLE.

Should just be top 4 advance.  Bracket is silly

I would just do top 3 advance straight to a final. The HR Derby does get boring after a while.
 
2022-07-18 8:54:40 PM  
Alonso started slow but got there.
