Bryce Harper’s Brother Has A Ridiculous Mustache; Jose Canseco Talking Smack, And Other Home Run Derby Updates
If you’re going to get on national TV at the All-Star Game, you might as well go big. Bryce Harper’s brother, Bryan, watching the action. If this is his idea of Google Glass, he’s not doing it right.
UPDATE: Cespedes wins, 9-8. Last one went 455 feet, making him first Oakland A’s player to win derby since Mark McGwire in 1992.
UPDATE: Yoenis Cespedes and Bryce Harper on to the final. American League has already won the team competition.
Meanwhile, on some sofa in Florida:
Wow I can hit a softball further than these guys can hit a baseball in the home run derby.

Yes!!! The Home Run Apple appears for Wright's homers. Several followers correctly predicted this. You guys are geniuses.

Pitbull has stopped singing so Chris Berman can talk. Not even Bill James could figure out the lesser of two evils there

Looks pretty cutthroat amongst those kids in the outfield. Sorta like Lord of the Flies.

Berman saying Cespedes is literally off the charts as they show a chart with Cespedes on it. This is how the word is properly used in 2013

Chris Davis hits back-to-back opposite-field bombs. Don't know if I've ever seen that in a Derby.

Record for most HR in a #HRDerby is 41 by Bobby Abreu in 2005 … we'll see if Yoenis Cespedes can challenge that

Trucks, restaurants … nothing's safe when Yoenis Cespedes is in the box. #HRDerby
