Open Thread: 2014 Home Run Derby

Doesn't he have a lovely smile? - Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

I don't think you're going to regret watching tonight's Home Run Derby.

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.

American League

(C) Jose BautistaToronto Blue Jays. 17 home runs.

Yoenis Cespedes. Oakland Athletics. 14 home runs.

Josh Donaldson. Oakland Athletics. 20 home runs.

Brian Dozier. Minnesota Twins. 18 home runs.

Adam Jones. Baltimore Orioles. 16 home runs.

National League

(C) Troy Tulowitzki. Colorado Rockies. 21 home runs.

Todd Frazier. Cincinnati Reds. 19 home runs.

Justin Morneau. Colorado Rockies. 13 home runs.

Yasiel Puig. Los Angeles Dodgers. 12 home runs.

Giancarlo Stanton. Miami Marlins. 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.

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.
