Here's Ceetar followed by my take:
So that gave me an idea. Home Run Derby Day. Chicks and kids dig the longball right?
12pm on a Sunday, have a home run derby. I kind of like the old classic version that you sometimes see on ESPN Classic but I'm up for the modern version.
Imagine the fun of seeing if David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Jason Bay, Howard Johnson or Darryl Strawberry would win. Could be fun and a nice variant on the Old Timer's Day type thing.
Heck, you could even make some alternate home run derby jerseys and monitize it!
Maybe it becomes a fun mini-tradition and the occasional visiting player takes part. Imagine the Subway Series version!
Just trying to help the Mets. Now it's not a logistical nightmare. 4 of the 5 guys I names should be in the building. On behalf of all fans I promise you we won't start in with "the home run derby screwed up his swing" is Wright goes 0 for his next 8.
