To give you a frame of reference:

"Any drive over 400 feet is noteworthy. A blow of 450 feet shows exceptional power, as the majority of major league players are unable to hit a ball that far. Anything in the 500-foot range is genuinely historic."

And anything over 600 feet is a lie made by old-timey strongmen, print journalists, and radio announcers before home run distance was tracked as a statistic.

Surprisingly, Stanton didn't even make it to the final round, where Oakland A's OF Yoenis Cespedes claimed the Derby crown for the second year in a row.

Colorado, you strange. Although it's good that they've got their priorities in order: it may be snowing in the middle of May, but the grounds crew will be damned if Mother Nature screws up the consistency of their infield dirt!

Jordy Mercer of the Pittsburgh Pirates hit a 2-run jack against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park on Wednesday afternoon. Unfortunately, Mercer committed involuntary beerslaughter along the way, vaporizing this fan's brew. That's $45 down the drain!

The last time the Cubs won the World Series, the Ottoman Empire still existed, and the first affordable mass-produced automobile, the Ford Model T, was introduced.
