Really happy for Alonso. Mets appear to have a great kid on their squad.

Considering the way his cousin was pitching to him, he's lucky he even got the homeruns.

Style matters. Vladdy hit 91 bombs and one off the scoreboard. That’s entertaining in an exhibition. 

 

That said, the Alonso story is awesome.

A break from what and what does the derby have to do with said break?

So wtf? I would have had a perfect bracket on T-Mobile HR Derby Challenge is Joc didn’t get screwed over... can someone explain for my simple mind? 

He had 27, then hit 3 more... why didn’t he win 30-29? 

 

I had Alonso bearing Joc in finals, Vlad hitting most HR’s overall.

You have no idea if you had a perfect bracket because you have no idea what Joc would have done in the finals.

The scoreboard was off. He hit 29, not 30.

Yes but Vladi signed for ~4mil as an international J2. Alonso signed for less than a mil... and doesn't have a multi millionaire ex-athlete father

Alonso is about to get paid soon. Vladdy might hit .260 soon ;)

Lol, oh boy. Gotta be one in every crowd. 

How’d your bracket go my friend?

Vladdy is not fit to be in the same sentence as Alonso. One can actually produce during games and not choke when it matters like vlad does.

Vlad Jr. was nothing short of amazing today... 90-91 or whatever? Scoreboard can’t be trusted obviously, I mean it’s the peak of the computer age and all, but yeah... 

 

Alonso was legit! Happy for him and very cool to see him donate a big chunk to such a great cause! Betsy Ross is smiling down!

Alonso only needed 34 to reach the finals

 

Vladdy hit 91

 

Format is lame 

 

I hear you but that’s how all tournament formats work, naturally. Doesn’t mean format itself is lame.

One? Are you really of the opinion that I’m the only person here that realizes that you can’t account for the unknown?

Alonso is 24 closing in on 25

Vlad just turn 20.

It never matters for Alonso also because he plays for the laughing stock of the MLB, the Mets

Hey 2ndCitySox.  Right after my post above you posted below me:

Vlad over Alonso. I'll bet 1 imaginary dollar on that  

Can I have that imaginary dollar now?   😎

How cool was it that two leaders for ROY in their leagues met in that final round.

And nice to see a ballplayer tithe part of his winnings to charity.  And that was 10%, not 5% there LivignOnThe Edge, which comes to 100K.  Great example.

I don’t care who got the trophy, Vlad won that 100% and I’m gonna hold fast on my prediction and say he’s gonna win every hr derby he ever participates in

But he’s already 0-1. So...he can’t. Unless each time he loses, you’re gonna say, “I don’t care who won, Vlad REALLY won! He’s 2-0 now!”
