I couldn't find this in the threads of the Derby itself, although I admit I didn't search all that thoroughly, but what was in the case that Volquez dropped off for Hamilton? Seemed like an odd move, but maybe less odd than Ortiz feigning walking away (that was bizarre!)
At any rate, I made a liveblog of my thoughts during the derby, can be found here. Nothing too technical or long - I was doing it from my iPhone - and to be honest about 60% of it is complains about the morons they had commenting on the derby.
I really hate ESPN. I really hate Chris Berman. Joe Morgan is a moron. Did anyone catch that before the finals, Joe said that "5 or 6" could win, then when Hamilton was hitting he says, "See? I told you 7 would win!" Huh?
