hone run

Las Vegas - So, we have some tennis, which is on REALLY early out here in Vegas, and you know how I do with early. Or, the MLB Home Run Derby at a civilized hour. Now that Christian Yelich has been scratched, Josh Bell is the favorite, but my money is gonna be on Mets 1B, Pete Alonso. On June 22, Alonso hit his 26th home run, breaking the National League record for most home runs by a rookie before the All-Star break, passing Cody Bellinger, who set the record with 25 home runs in 2017. Then he followed with his 27th home run, and broke the Mets rookie home run record, previously set by Darryl Strawberry in 1983. Again, BEFORE the All-Star break.

A couple of caveats. When I say, my money, it AIN'T gonna be a bunch, and as most of you know, I have a New York bias, so you are on your own.
