I'm watching the State Farm Home Run Derby as I type this. Matt Kemp isn't fairing well. Oh, he just hit a gold ball. Another $18,000 for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Thanks, State Farm.

SABR member David Vincent wrote a fascinating article about pitchers hitting the long ball. Enjoy the Derby. Enjoy the All-Star Game. See you in a few days.
