Home Run Derby prediction: Pete Alonso wins first-round matchup

Here’s to the winners. Champions crowned over the past week: Joey Chestnut won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest. The Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup. Novak Djokovic won Wimbledon. Italy won the Euros. And even though Zaila Avant-garde won the Scripps National Spelling Bee, SNL’s Pete Davidson was named a spokesman for Smartwater.

No Smart TV needed to watch the idiot’s delight Monday night. This idiot will be backing the Mets’ Pete Alonso in the first round of the Home Run Derby. Polar Bear Pete, the 2019 champ, is swinging a hot bat and should survive the Royals’ Salvador Perez. 10 units on Alonso.

Rolled with the Reds on 7/11 and they chilled the Brews 3-1. Nick Castellanos’ two run single off Josh Hader was the eventual game winner. Luis Castillo allowed one run, three hits. Head into the break on a high. Account at -913 griffeys.
