2018 MLB Home Run Bore

Boy, do I hope I am wrong about this, but my first impression after looking at the field for the 2018 State Farm Home Run Derby is… what a bore this is going to be. Again, I hope I am wrong and, again, this is just a first impression… but wow. I guess we have been spoiled over the years with the likes of Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Giancarlo Stanton in the event, but the names we will go over below just do not excite me right off the bat. I’m sorry but they don’t, and I can’t be the only one.

(#1) Jesus Aguilar – MIL
(#8) Rhys Hoskins – PHI

(#4) Alex Bregman – HOU
(#5) Kyle Schwarber – CHC

(#2) Bryce Harper – WAS
(#7) Freddie Freeman – ATL

(#3) Max Muncy – LAD
(#6) Javier Baez – CHC

So, who wins? I guess I will go with Max Muncy, just because. I may not even watch it, truth be told.

  1. I think Hoskins, Harper, and Freeman are good choices and it has been a breakout year for Aguilar. Javy Baez is the man that made Gleyber Torres expendable so he has my support. But, c'mon, the man of the hour is Mad Max! Love his story...


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
