It has just been announced that Athletics’ third baseman, and All-Star starter, Josh Donaldson has been added as the final AL participant in the Home Run Derby. He will be joining A’s outfielder, and defending Home Run Derby Champion, Yoenis Cespedes in the event.
Having Cespedes in the Derby is one thing, but having 2 key contributors of the A’s dominant offense is another. There were already questions circulating about whether or not Cespedes should be allowed to participate, due to the belief that participating in the Home Run Derby messes up a hitter’s swing for the 2nd half.
Now with 2 Athletics in the contest, we have to ask. How do you feel about this decision?
