MLB is here to empower you when it comes to selecting the participants of the 2014 Home Run Derby! Sort of. Here's the relevant disclaimer ...
If you could choose, who would you like to participate in the 2014 Home Run Derby? Select up to three players from both the American League and National League list below. Remember, we appreciate your feedback, but your selections will not determine the actual participants of the 2014 Home Run Derby.
So you can vote, but your vote won't count. It shall be heard, though! So that's ... something.
Anyhow, here's a screencap of the ballot/poll in question ...
Hmm. Questions raised, a partial listing:
- What is Prince Fielder doing on here?
- What is Jose Abreu not doing on here?
- What is Carlos Beltran doing on here?
- What is Nelson Cruz not doing on here?
- Should Bryce Harper, coming off a major thumb injury, really be listed?
- Why Jason Heyward instead of teammate Justin Upton?
Fortunately, there's space for write-ins.
