Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

Okay - I've mapped some stuff out and here's the problem with teams by position instead of tiers.

Not saying that they'd all stay to form from 2018, but you never know.

Thoughts?

Re: [Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

If we’re just wanting to mix things up, how about scrapping the “tiers” of players and changing it so everyone has to have a complete “team” of fielders?

[Brainstorm] HR Derby Changes/Updates

I do have a life, and yes it gets busy at times, but I still enjoy running the NSBB HR Derby every season. Maybe one of these years I'll finish in the Top 5. That being said, as we approach the 13th (documented) season of Home Run Derby... I'd like to ask everyone what they'd like to see changed / a...

Re: 2018 HR Derby {Discussion & Transaction Thread}

Ronald Acuña has homered in 5 straight games, 7 of the last 8, and led off the last three games with a HR.

This phenomenon is also dubbed "How Southpaw19 Came Back to Win HR Derby".

I just remembered that I "met" him 2 weeks ago in Disney World. He was at ESPNZone doing an interview and that's where we had dinner that night.
