There has been a lot of hype surrounding a possible pitcher’s home run derby this year, but it has not been confirmed. Most of the hype is surrounding guys like Madison Bumgarner or Jake Arrieta, but let’s be honest, there is only one pitcher that truly needs to be in the home run derby. That one pitcher is big sexy himself, Bartolo Colon.
Out of all the years I have watched baseball, I have never seen a player get more attention every time he swings the bat, sometimes makes contact, and even when he runs. This man would be an absolute gem if he received an invitation to the home run derby and we need to find a way to make it happen. I have started a vote to try and petition Bartolo into the derby, so please join me and help!
