Coffee Companion (7/15): Jimmy Smith fallout, Cespedes wins Derby
I struggle with the Home Run Derby, despite being a huge fan of three-hour batting practice sessions involving Cuban sluggers. There’s a very small percentage of baseball fans who feel like I do. If this, and the All-Star Game, are really for the kids, why have them at eight? It makes no sense. So all that happened, and all the rest of this stuff, as you’ll read in the Coffee Companion.
