You Suck, Brandon Inge

Detroit Tigers third baseman Brandon Inge just hit zero bombs in the Home Run Derby.

Good job, buddy.

First round action: Nelson Cruz and Prince Fielder are tied with 11 longballs a piece. Ryan Howard has seven, Carlos Peña, Albert Pujols and Joe Mauer are all knotted up at five a piece, and Adrian Gonazalez managed two tater tots.

Man Muscles is out after hitting zero in the swing-off tie-breaker. Pena hit one, but Pujols nailed two. Prince Albert moves on to Round Two!

During the second round, Pooholes led off with six homers for a total of 11, native son Howard followed him with eight for 15 in all, Cruz then hit five for 16, and the fattest vegetarian ever knocked out six more for 17 total. Fielder and Cruz move on to the Finals. My money's on tofu.

After Cruz hit five homers, Fielder went on to win it with six.

This means Andrew wins the Home Run Derby Challenge! Thanks to all who played. Look for his guest post coming soon! Enjoy tonight's All-Star Celebrity Softball game re-run.

Ridic. A night of surprises, actually. Pujols choked under the home crowd pressure. Prince Fielder is the fattest vegetarian I've ever seen in my life. Erin Andrews got tangled up in the shower curtain at a cheap hotel and no one told her. Next thing you know, McGwire will show up. Crazy ...

Unfortunately I do not have the know-how on grabbing a screen shot from a televised event and getting it on the internet, but when ESPN went to commercial before Joe Mauer came up in the first round, they showed a rapid montage of Joe Mauer homer highlights, including one where he was wearing #33 and his name was Justin Morneau.

ESPN not respecting the Twins.

Also, fuck the ESPN ball tracker. If they didn't get at least a million complaints about that annoying thing, then too many people (such as myself) are not doing our duty bitching them out on their stupidity.

There's the link to the complaint department if anyone cares to express how badly the ball tracker sucked.

Timberhill - it's sorta how they seem to think Josh Hamilton won the derby last year. Every time they referred to him it went "Hamilton, last year's w-- err.. participant"
