    Abreu was a dinger machine last night. His first round took almost a half hour alone...24 HRs. That's silly sick!!

    Ortiz contributed to the extended time that it took for the HR derby with 17 in the first round as well.

    Ortiz broke the single-round record as well? We turned it off after the guy following Abreu finished up, and were flipping channels about 3 hours later and the thing was still going on...

    It lasted long because the first round lasted forever.

    I mean noone expected anyone to break 10 home runs and 2 guys slugged 17 or more. [​IMG]

    Bobby Abreu was ON FIRE.

    Dude hit 42 home runs(give or take 1 or 2) over the course of the night. Some of which hit the 2nd deck in right field which was unheardof.
