big papi get's to draft his friends for the HR derby. hmm...

MLB announced the other day that david ortiz and prince fielder are the "captains" of the HR derby, and they can ask whoever they'd like to compete.  i like the fact that baseball is trying something new in order to add interest to the event.  which brings me to two points:

first, papi should without a doubt ask manny to come back and do it.  i know that realistically there is no way it will happen, 0% chance.   but it would be amazing; must see television.  tons of people would watch just hoping to see him fail.  steriod jokes/speculation would be all the rage.  how would his interactions with the other players go?  and what if he did well?  i can think of a million reasons why it would be GREAT entertainment, which is something nobody can deny manny always brought to the table.

and second, the reason papi is a "captain" this year is because he won the thing last year.  which i had totally forgotten ever happened.  i honestly don't remember if i even watched it.  so that brings me back to my first point.  i'm pretty sure if manny was in the derby this year i would both watch and remember.
