HR Derby: David Wright the NL Honorary Derby HR Captain, got a huge hand for the 2013 HR Derby but only hit five HRs & did not advance past the first round.

The winner was Oakland's Yoenis Cespedes who beat out Bryce Harper in the final round. Cespedes is not in the All Star game, now centerfieldmaz voted for him, but if your not in the All Star Game (although he should be) should you be in the HR Derby?

I am not a big fan of the HR Derby either, but the sell out crowd & all the traffic & madness around the Citi Field vicinity tonight, shows how popular it is.

Matt Harvey All Star Starting Pitcher
Tomorrow night: the All Star Game at Citi Field, what a thrill for us Mets fans to Have Matt Harvey start the game & David Wright bat clean up!!!!!! Cant wait.............................
