Josh Hamilton Reruns

Am I an obsessed baseball fan if I want to spend every night watching Josh Hamilton’s 28-HR Round 1 in the State Farm Home Run Derby?

It’s on ESPN2 now and I am enjoying it as much as I did in person. Hammy, crush No. 18 for a 518-footer. Erin, grab him right afterwards for an interview. Reggie, say how much the fans were treated the way you used to treat them.

I don’t mean to diss Justin Morneau but that is going to stand the test of time for me. I was at Ripken’s 2131, Big Mac’s 62, Dr. J’s Last House Call, etc, etc…and Hammy’s 28 is always going to have a special place no matter what. I’d watch the rerun all the time.

And the most amazing part is that it only set the stage for the best All-Star Game ever. What’s funny is that here at MLB.com, and among the voting populace, we made such a huge deal over Ryan Braun charging from nowhere to become the No. 1 starting outfielder in the N.L. — and yet what’s more memorable now is the other Ryan, Ludwick, replacing him in the seventh inning and proceeding to play the last nine innings. A full regulation game.

It’s just so weird. Looking back at that week, you remember the HR Derby runnerup more than the winner, and you remember the guys who played the last nine or 10 innings more than those who garnered all those votes to start. OK, back to trade talk
