Sluggers shunning Home Run Derby
From staff and wire reports
Baseball's biggest sluggers will skip the All-Star Home Run Derby. Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Alex Rodriguez and Manny Ramirez have declined to participate in Monday's long-ball festival at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago.
Participants are to be named on Thursday.
Bonds, asked why he's skipping out, answered, "Because I'm grown, and I don't have to"
Hey. Thanks for giving something back to the fans
you ego-inflated-multi-gazillionaire-HumVee-drivin-Boca-Raton-corked-bat-steroid-swillin'-I-don't-sign-pampered jerks.
But. I digress.
