Home Run Derby 2011: Adrian Gonzalez Does All Right In Final

Everybody talks about the way fatigue starts to build the deeper and deeper you get into the home run derby. If Adrian Gonzalez is fatigued, he isn't showing it right now as he leads off the final round. As of this writing, he's got three outs and six dingers, and that's despite the curious distraction of having to see himself directly above the guy throwing baseballs at him.

"That's me, but purple!"

Gonzalez now has eight homers on five outs, which should do hold on wait a second I thought the final round was only five outs, not ten. When did this change? Did this change? Am I just making up a rule that didn't exist? Probably the worst thing about the home run derby is watching the home run derby and finding out it's even longer than you thought it was going in. It's like if I took the SAT without knowing there were 2400 possible points now. What do you mean there's more test!

Larry Fitzgerald sighting in the front row. This is what the players have been reduced to during the lockout. Watching the home run derby, in person, sober.

Gonzalez's final round ends with 11 dingers, which ties the most prolific final round in derby history. ooohh
