Bryce Harper wins 2018 MLB HR Derby in Nationals Park: “This is for the whole city of D.C.”

Bryce Harper thrilled the nation’s capital last night, rallying late to win the HR Derby in Nationals Park. WASHINGTON, D.C.: 13-14-15-16-17 ... and with just two seconds left, homer No. 18 of Bryce Harper’s final round flurry sailed out to right field in Nationals Park as Washington’s 25-year-old slugger rallied, tying Chicago Cubs’ bruiser Kyle Schwarber in the 2018 MLB HR Derby. “I know we’ve talked about that for a long time, and we were able to do that tonight and get 18 with 30 seconds left. Wow, that was pretty awesome.” - Bryce Harper on HR Derby With bonus time...

Gadiel Baez didn’t do Javy any favors. But hey, it has to be cool to even be there. I suspect Javier Baez has more All-Star appearances in his future. I suspect the same of Kyle Schwarber. The Armed Services thing was dumb. Honestly, I think the whole thing is dumb, and badly-organized, but Javy and Schwarbs are in it, so I’ll temper my animus. I have nothing but...

Watch Bryce Harper finish off the 2018 Home Run Derby

Watch Bryce Harper finish off the 2018 Home Run Derby

Bryce Harper did it. For one night at Nationals Park, everything felt right. For one night, Bryce Harper was the Bryce Harper he was always supposed to be: the fire-starting, high intensity phenom that could make stadiums roar with the snap of his fingers. The event itself had little meaning, and Harper had an advantage from the start thanks to his low (high?) seed. It’s unlikely that any momentum Harper created will carry into the second half of the season. It doesn’t really matter. Harper, when he knocked off six homers in 27 seconds to tie Kyle Schwarber up at 18, and then another in...

Open thread: 2018 MLB Home Run Derby

Chat about dingers here. Even though the Mets have no representatives in Major League Baseball’s 2018 edition of the Home Run Derby, we figured you might be watching and appreciate an open thread for that. The field is particularly loathsome for Mets fans, as a chunk of it comes from other teams in the National League East: Bryce Harper, Freddie Freeman, and Rhys Hoskins. And there are two Cubs in it, too, in Kyle Schwarber and Javier Baez. The Brewers’ Jesus Aguilar, the Dodgers’ Max Muncy, and the Astros’ Alex Bregman round out the field. Time: 8:00 PM EDTTV: ESPN

MLB Home Run Derby 2018: Watch Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber at 7 p.m. CT

These two Cubs could hit baseballs a long way at Nationals Park tonight. You read earlier today of the history of various Cubs in the Home Run Derby. To that history, tonight we add the names of Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber, both of whom have hit memorably long home runs. The longest I remember from Baez was long before he made the major leagues. It was in a spring-training game at HoHoKam Park, while the Cubs still trained there. I don’t recall the exact date, but it must have been 2013, the first year Javy got a non-roster invite to camp. He hit a ball over the scoreboard at the back...
