My 2016 MLB HR Derby Bracket Challenge: I Am Picking Giancarlo Stanton: Get Your Selections In

This is going to be an awesome HR Derby.  I am surprised to see that I had to google search that there was an actual bracket contest.  Bad marks for the MLB in not promoting the living bejeezus out of this contest.
 
I mean everyone loves to fill out a bracket for the NCAA March Madness.  The MLB really needs to keep the pedal to the medal on any chance they can to cash in on any publicity this might generate. They even have a sponsor in T-Mobile.
 
Before we get into the selections themselves, lets look at the odds to win the thing.

Odds to win the 2016 MLB Home Run Derby

Giancarlo Stanton, MIA,  +325
Mark Trumbo, BAL, +375
Wil Myers, SD, +550
Todd Frazier, CWS, +600
Adam Duvall, CIN, +600
Robinson Cano, SEA, +800
Carlos Gonzalez, COL. +800
Corey Seager, LAD, +900

MLB: Houston Astros at Toronto Blue Jays

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

It is a “just do what is expected” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Daniel Murphy, Max Scherzer, Eddie Rosario, Kendall Graveman, Kyle Seager, Tommy Joseph and Nick Topeano all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.

The Black Prince of Baseball- Hal Chase and the Mythology of the Game: A Review

Before Babe Ruth, another mega star dominated the baseball landscape.  His name was Hal Chase and he was a supremely talented and flawed athlete and human, who was ultimately overtaken by his demons and unceremoniously cast out of the majors because of his penchant for gambling and allegedly throwing games—which possibly included involvement in the 1919 Chicago Black Sox scandal. Detailing his rise and fall is Donald Dewey and Nicholas Acocella, with their excellent The Black Prince of Baseball: Hal Chase and the Mythology of the Game (University of Nebraska Press, 2004/2016).
