Home Run Derby 2011: Prince Fielder Chokes, Eliminates Self

Prince Fielder steps up needing to hit more home runs than he's going to hit, and Pedro Gomez takes this opportunity to interview the pathetic Matt Kemp on the sidelines. In case you've forgotten, which would be warranted because this is stupid, Matt Kemp hit two home runs in his entire first round, which has been the worst performance of the day. Kemp owns 22 homers so far in the regular season, meaning that today he either hit one-eleventh that many home runs, or half that many home runs, if you are a more visual person.

Kemp claims that hitting in the derby is "harder than it looks." What's interesting is how that principle applies to everybody, and Kemp was the worst. Matt Kemp and Matt Holliday should just go live in the woods. Matts are the worst at baseball. Has there ever even been a good Matt? Sign a Matt and you are throwing money away.

Speaking of throwing things away, Fielder just threw away ten outs while hitting only four home runs, which was not as many as the 15 home runs that he needed to hit. So Fielder is gone, setting us up for a title showdown between Adrian Gonzalez and Robinson Cano. One way or another, ESPN always ends up showing the Red Sox vs. the Yankees.
