How lame is the Home Run Derby contest? Most of the big sluggers in the game studiously avoid it these days convinced the event ruins their swings. The guy who won this year's contest is hardly an All Star. Why, a month or two ago everyone was wondering if he would be dropped from his team's lineup. Frankly, I liked the old B&W versions of the Derby. Two guys. Bonafide sluggers. One on one. All the production value of a Honeymooners set.
