Yeah, on mute. Chris Berman makes it unbearable to listen to.

The contest needs a new twist. Its boring until the last round, and by then the players are dead tired. They should offer a bonus for hitting certain sections and/or distances.

They should just do one round, 20 outs each

Matt Carpenter actually getting some love
They should give Puig an invite to the HR Derby. It's a fan's event so why not?

I actually like that idea. Who really wants to watch the same guys every year do the HR contest. B O R I N G

NL should have Dom Brown, Puig, Mike Stanton, and Paul Goldschmidt
AL should have Chris Davis, Edwin Encarnacion, Miguel Cabrera, and Yoenis Cespedes.

Maybe 2 repeaters.. Stanton and Miggy and 6 other new guys who can crush the ball and add excitement for the fans.

Evan Gattis needs to be in the HR derby.

Let him just come over to your house instead and watch it with you.

Cargo instead of Brown maybe. I really would want the last 3 in if I was picking.

only Davis in the AL hits HRs more frequently than Gattis
