I’ve been waiting to post that video for a few days now, and I guess there won’t be a better opportunity than with the open thread. It’s the first career homers for all eight of this year’s Homerun Derby participants — at least before Pedro Alvarez replaced Carlos Gonzalez — which includes Robinson Cano. Robbie, wearing #22 back in 2005, hit one into the upper deck at the Old Stadium off … Doug Creek of the Tigers. Not exactly a brand name. Anyway, check out the video. It’s pretty neat.
Here is tonight’s open thread. The Mets and Pirates will be the Saturday night FOX game for those of you in the Tri-State area (Torres vs. Burnett), while those of you scattered elsewhere will see one of four other games. Talk about anything you want right here. Have at it.
