"Super Vlad" wins HR Derby!

With the All-Star break happening these next several days, it's going to make for some slow blogging days this week... With that, there was one exciting event going on yesterday - the All-Star Game Home Run Derby... Eight players competed: Albert Pujols (Cardinals), Vladimir Guerrero (Angels), Ryan Howard (Phillies), Justin Morneau (Twins), Matt Holliday (Rockies), Alex Rios (Blue Jays), Prince Fielder (Brewers) and Magglio Ordonez (Tigers) competed... Pujols, Morneau, Fielder and Ordonez were eliminated in the first round, with Guerrero and Rios surviving the second round and making it to the final... Rios would only manage two homers, while Guerrero would only need seven of his alloted ten outs to smash three homers (including a prodiguous shot hit over 500 feet to left field)... Guerrero also competed in 2000 as a member of the then Montreal Expos and didn't do so quite so well... it's definitely an achievement all of his fans here in Southern California and elsewhere can definitely be proud of!!!
