HR Derby

Detroit Tigers 1B Prince Fielder won his second Home Run Derby last night in Kansas City.  He is the second player to win multiple times and the first to do so in both leagues.  Still, Todd Ranck believes the Derby is missing something as last night didnt have any luster to it besides the fact of Robinson Cano getting booed.  What would you add to the Home Run Derby to improve the event?


What song best describes this Phillies season?

Mike Gill was driving home last night and on the radio he heard Boyz II Men- End Of The Road and it got him thinking: that song describes this Phillies season perfectly.  Romance aside, Mike Gill knows the Phillies season is over but "he cant let go."  He says he knows it's the end for Shane Victorino come July 31st.  What song for you best describes this Phillies season?

Bob Cooney LIVE from Orlando
