2011 Home Run Derby Lineup, July 11, 2011 – If you’re like me, who received the news of the Home Run Derby 2011 list with almost complete indifference. And if you’re like me, who finally got to read the lineup after being stubborn two or three hours, and then saw the name of Rickie Weeks and thought “so what the hell?”
But if you’re like me, who did not realize that Rickie Weeks is a bit different than I remember. Between 2003-2009, Weeks homered 60 times, or about once every 35 trips that led to the board. Since the beginning of last season, however, homered 46 times, or about once every 25 trips he has taken to the board. Rickie Weeks has become a powerful young man.
This does not necessarily mean that belong to this contest. In the past year, week number 17 in homers, behind not invited as Mike Stanton and Jay Bruce. He has been particularly prolific or his number of home runs, not particularly spectacular, with its displays of home runs. He has not matched the total Stanton, and he has not matched, I do not know, brute force Wily Mo Pe? a.
But the inclusion ofanlyzing weeks “means that this is important and is somewhat predictable, it is not. You see:
(1) Home Run Derby, no matter
(2) Home Run Derby is not expected
We know it does not matter. I do not think there is any level that we believe is important. Many of us will see, but “see” mean “lights and stop paying attention after 20 minutes,” and the final round to those who still follow along to plead are only for the closing. It is useless and terrible. It is horrible and useless entertainment.
And in the aspect of predictability, recall that once Bobby Abreu won the Home Run Derby. Remember that Miguel Tejada once won the home run derby. Remember that Garret Anderson once won a home run derby. There are some players that have proven to be a little better home run hitters of some other players, but that does not really apply in the classic format, in which boys are hucking batting practice from seven feet away and can take as little rounds as ten shots. There is absolutely no say how any given derby will end.
So, hey, Rickie Weeks is, and I could win. He has about as much chance as anyone else on this thing. Good luck, Rickie Weeks.
