    Default Home Run Derby problems

    Interesting that only 2 players have said they will participate in the home run derby. Harper and Muncy. And Muncy wasn't even selected as an All-start (final 5 vote, he might get in).

    Max Muncy says he will particpate - https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/d...ome-run-derby/

    Judge and Stanton opt out - http://www.sportingnews.com/mlb/news...e1y04ur3lh5iyp

    Betts suggests an skills competition instead - https://www.thescore.com/mlb/news/1569407

    I think a skills competition with a smaller home run derby (as Betts alluded to in the article) would be awesome. The all-star festivities should only include the all-stars themselves in my opinion, and not everyone that makes it is a slugger, so this would get everyone involved including the pitchers.

    Harper is only doing it because it's in Washington I think.

    Yup, exactly... probably some additional $$ is being sent his way as a PR thing.
