    I guess someone had to start one.

    No way can it live up to last year's, but hey, I am giving it a few minutes of my time.

    Berman is horrible.
    Fat Albert trying to hit the home run was nice, but then Berman stopped explaining what I was watching.
    Ozzie Smith looks older than Drip's BFF Morgan.
    Some guy named Cruz plays for Texas and he hits a lot of homeruns? I thought all players named Cruz played shortstop.

    Man, I just don't give a shit about baseball anymore.

    Andrews either needs to dress sexy or professionally. This Church-casual clothing just looks so forced.

    I've had it on for two minutes.

    Berman is killing me. He's ruining it.

    He's an embarrassment and has been for way to long.

    Cruz played four years at LSU, I thought he'd make you wet.

    did ESPN just write that Jack Buck was the St.Louis broadcaster from 1924-2002?

    Hey, he does hit the shit out of the ball.

    Man, these camera angles are awful.

    "Albert.....how are your steroid cycles going? Have they aligned with the HR derby, or have you altered your regiment to please the hometown crowd?"

    I don't start caring until hitters 6 and 7. :)

    Tebow, you just did a crossthread/crosssport, and it took me 15 minutes to figure it out.

    Well done.

    God, I've seen this for less than five minutes and every trite cliche has already aired.

    Slugger's kids oohing and aahing as ESPN tries to make us believe the superstars are just like you and I? Check.

    Slugger has entourage surrounding him? Check.

    Slugger bumps fists with teammates, making this all feel like one big snugglefest? Check.

    Chris Berman makes me wish I was deaf? Check.

    Kill the Derby NOW.

    In unrelated news, this has to end by 10:30 b/c that's when old men like Albert Pujols go to bed.

    Albert's trying to pull it! See, he's too late on it!

    Joe Morgan, brilliant as always.
