I hope you all enjoyed the All Star Break. I personally spent most of it in the White Mountains with zero internet, TV, or radio, while camping with my wife’s family. It was glorious.
For those just joining us, this is the perfect time! At the half way point of the baseball season, we crown a finalist (Congrats again to AzRattler!), wipe the leaderboard, and start all over. At the end of the season, the winner of the second half will face off against Rattler for the title of PYW’s 18 Champ!
Again, if you’re just joining us, the game is I give you a prompt, you give your responses, and the rec’s must flow (like Spice). It’s pretty simple really. But for all of that, you need a prompt for me...
There are many traditions surrounding the All-Star Game. The Home Run Derby is probably the biggest, but there’s also the Future’s Game, Celebrity Soft Ball game, and others. In all fairness, MLB has pretty well figured out the Derby and turned it into quite the spectacle. This writer’s opinion on Bryce Harper cheating is “good.” But there is always room for improvement. Add one rule to the Derby to push it over the edge and make it a bigger event than the ASG. Go!
