    Anyone else watching? Josh Hamilton is killing everybody else right now in the first round; nobody had more than 8, and he's already hit 27 and he's still going. Make that 28, as I type. Still two outs to go. Unbelievable.

    No joke. Go ahead and punch his ticket to the final round; he probably won't even need to hit in the second round.

    Amazing display that Hamilton just put on. Can't believe that like they are saying he was not on a team for 3 years due to drugs.

    Wow, I was happy that Braun found his stroke for a little bit.

    But Hamilton was unreal.

    He's clearly tired now, with only 2 HR and 5 outs in the final round. Still...

    The only thing anyone will remember about this Derby is Hamilton, much like McGwire in Fenway back in '99.

    Hamilton freaking rocked. That crowd was going insane every time he had a hit. I almost didn't want that to end. 28 is a milestone.

    Abreu's 24 3 years ago was impressive, but this beat that out pretty easily. He was crushing those balls.

    NY fans are just to excitable. Watching that cop grab that kid by the neck was pretty funny. Hamilton crushing the ball. Braun at least showed up.

    That was AWESOME. One of the most exciting things I've seen in sports in a while. I'll remember Hamilton 10 years from now, but not remember who won it.

    When? Someone remembers a Homerun contest?:p This will likely be the only one I ever remember because a player from "my" team was involved.

    They should simply change the format to solve these problems. One round/10-12 players, guy who hits the most wins. Nevermind the rounds.
