July 21, 2009

Last week I lamented about the overall lame-ness of the MLB Home Run Derby. This week I was in the lunch room at work and having a conversation about it with some of my co-workers, when a great idea was born. It was first suggested by Dan that the way to improve the Home Run Derby was to have Jose Canseco face off against Mark McGwire, with both of them having one full year to take whatever substances they wanted. Kimball then suggested that we allow other former players into the contest as well, so we added Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro, and Barry Bonds to the participants. As a final tweak, we added Roger Clemens to the mix, as the pitcher who was forced to lob the balls in and watch them fly out of the park.

I would watch that.
