They already said they aren't knocking down o.co and Oakland companies are willing to pay to build a new stadium.

That's just a myth. You'e telling me you can switch flawlessly from game swing to HR derby swing but, it'll take forever to go bac the other way around? I just honestly don't buy that crap.

Yeah, most likely the player had a "hot" first half and just returned to earth after the break.

With baseball taking a four day break (or whatever it is), and the World Cup over, this is a sad time for sports fans. At least there are the ESPY Awards?

Can Madison Bumgarner replace Gregor Blanco in the outfield? Do anything just to keep his bat in the line up on a daily basis.

This does give Bochey an option on a pinch hitter though without wasting a bench player.

I hate this time of year. Wednesday and Thursday there will be nothing going on in the world of sports. Also, I hate the ESPYs.

I know, but it adds to the crap that this week brings. At least the British Open starts Thursday so there's something I guess.

I have no doubt that it's a myth, but baseball is such a mental game and players actually believe it does mess up their swings.

I guess they anticipate a lot of hr's from Cespedes and Stanton.

I don't see Donaldson hitting a ton. Just a hunch. Moss probably should have gone over him, but maybe he declined.

Donaldson has been trying to hit homers all season, so he's ready. Cespedes will win though.

Wily Mo Pena.

He just couldn't hit an offspeed pitch to save his life.

Don't forget about the bash brothers. Canseco hit one in the 5th deck in Toronto and Mcgwire hit one in the upper deck at the Kingdome back yonder.
