Your dream Home Run Derby?

    If you could choose two players that as hit over 500 home runs in their career to face each other in a home run derby who would those two players be? At which stadium would it be held at? Once again, you can choose any Major League Baseball stadium that you like.

    For me it's Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle, arguably the two players that could hit the ball further than anyone else. It would definitely be held at Tigers Stadium, we all know that Mantle as hit some moonshots there, and I can imagine Ruth would destroy some home runs in Right Field. My second stadium option would be AT&T Park.

    I know some of you dislike my new threads, but I think this one could be loads of fun.

    Stop, Ilmago, please, with these nonsensical "greatest" threads.
    It is approaching the point of stupidity.

    I hate these threads. It is like an online version of the Worst of Mike and Mike.

    I dream of a Home Run Derby pitting Rafael Belliard against Mario Mendoza.

    I don't understand what's wrong with these type of threads, it creates great discussions. It's much better than some threads that are created here anyway. If people don't like them, they don't need to read/reply to them.

    I'm not sure I would want to farther this discussion.

    My dream home-run derby would feature spnited, swinging a 50-ounce bat and hitting one of those stuffed-rag balls from the turn of the last century. I think I'd make the pitcher BYH, submarining the pitches in there. The other contestants, in no particular order, would be Brook Jacoby, Eddie Gaedel, Felix Millan and Ralph Kiner, circa 1988.

    No, it has to be farther because Ilamgo used further to indicate distance.

    I'd like to see Andie McDowell and Isabella Rossellini beating Chris Berman with bats as he shrieks 'Back, back, back, back!'

    Only if I can get someone to cover my shift at Wendy's.

    You know, I think Berman is the best actress of the three.
