Give 'Em Hell, Swish

Good luck to Swish in the HR Derby tonight. Will he have first-time jitters and be out after the first round?  Or can he get in a groove and make it interesting?

Personally, I don't think Swish has a chance tonight.  If he can keep the kind of quieter, compact swing he's had so far this year like in the picture above from his bomb on Saturday, he could be OK.  But I see him being a little too excited tonight, trying to swing a little harder than usual and tiring himself out.  But hey, maybe this reverse jinx will work and he can pull one out.  In any case, you know he's going to be entertaining.  ESPN would be crazy to not have him mic'd up all night.

Good luck, Swish.  Do Yankeeland proud tonight!
