I have dreamed of this night for many months. The night when The Mighty Giancarlo Stanton would participate in the Home Run Derby. And now it's here! It's really happening!
Oh, and there are some other guys, too.
Josh Donaldson. Oakland Athletics. 20 home runs.
(C) Troy Tulowitzki. Colorado Rockies. 21 home runs.
There are a bunch of new rules. You can read about them here. I don't understand them. I just want to watch dudes hit dingers. Why make it needlessly complicated? DINGERS.
If you're still not convinced to turn on the Derby tonight, this may put you over the edge.
A cool thing: Benjamin Utley, 2 1/2, will hang with his dad on the field during tonight's Derby.— Matt Gelb (@magelb) July 14, 2014
YES THAT IS RIGHT. Chase Utley's toddler son will be there. And we will get to see that. Don't lie and say you don't want to see that, or you don't care. You know you do.
So fire up your computer or flip on the TV and talk about the taters in the comments below.
