    Quote from odd man out: “I remember the first time I heard "Five O'Clock Somewhere" on the radio. After the first verse I said to my wife "Gee, that sounds like Alan Jackson singing a Jimmy Buffet Song". Then he got to the bridge and I felt very smart. ” Always nice to feel smart in front of your wife.

    Quote from max.patch: “speaking of technology, i'm amazed that seconds after a home run was hit in the derby we knew the exit velocity, maximum height, and distance. i wonder how far mickey mantle's 565 ft HR really went... ” I don't know, but the one Lee May (as a Red) supposedly hit into a dump truck probably still traveled the farthest.

    Quote from max.patch: “astro, your astros certainly played a bigger part in the outcome of the game than my braves. ” With Bregman and Springer going back to back off a Dodgers pitcher in the 10th inning it felt like the World Series again.

    Game represented the current state of MLB with 10 home runs and 25 strike outs. Throw in the 9 walks, and that makes 44 "ultimate outcomes", meaning 4.4 batters per inning did not put a ball in play (for the defense to field). Makes we wonder if that is a record.

    Quote from Astro: “Earlier posts were about "silly" pitching stat rules. Charlie Morton currently set to have blown save and win if AL lead holds up. ” So instead Diaz comes in and blows 2 run lead in the 9th and gets the win due to AL scoring in the top of the 10th.

    Quote from Astro: “Assuming Happ can get three outs before giving up three runs, the choice should be between Segura for 3 run HR or Bregman for breaking tie with HR in the 10th. But who knows with this game. ” While the derby last night may not have gone the way he wanted, Bregman hit the HR that mattered to take back the lead in the 10th to win the MVP. And then gave the Camaro to his mom.

    Quote from max.patch: “Quote from max.patch: “it goes without saying (but i'll say it anyway) that having a home run derby without judge, stanton, and trout is like the nba holding the league championship and not inviting the golden state warriors. ” lol, it's only the 3rd inning and judge and trout already have hit a HR. ” I guess they wanted to save it for the "real game".

    Quote from Traffic Jam: “My daughter and I went on a spur-of-the-moment hike to Obed, intending to hike to the Alley Ford campsite from the northern trailhead, a short 5 mi round trip. We got a late start and planned to eat lunch and swim at Alley Ford. We got caught in a downpour and decided to turn back before the predicted thunderstorms passed through. The 2+ miles we hiked before turning around was easy, peasy...we averaged 2.6 mph. Hiking in the rain was fun and really cooled us off on a ve…

    Schwarber was lucky just to make it past Bregman in the first round and get to the finals. It would have been awesome to see a 180 pound middle infielder win, maybe next year.
