Open Thread for Home Run Derby

MLB: All Star Game-Home Run Derby David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

I’m not a massive fan of the Home Run Derby (there are only so many times I can hear ‘back back back back back’ in an evening). But watching Vlad swing for the fences is always good.

The first-round matchups:

  • Luis Robert vs. Adley Rutschman
  • Pete Alonso vs. Julio Rodríguez
  • Mookie Betts vs. Vladimir Guerrero
  • Adolis García vs. Randy Arozarena
