I am worried about Stanton in the All Stars game.

It's cool that the big man is going to be in the home run contest and that he will be in the big game... but I am worried about what will happen after the game and the rest of his career. Look at what happened to Hanely after he was in the Home Run contest and the game... He has NEVER been the same since then. His career has gone way down since that game. He was maybe the best player in the MLB before that contest and now he is barely average and is always injured also. And We all know about Uggla. He still has the power but his batting average is as bad as a pitcher ever since the contest and game. I know some people will say its a big coincidence but come on both of them? It really makes me nervous to see him taking his hacks tonight and I wish he would get sick or it would rain or something because we need him the second half. This team can't compete without Stanton being as awesome as he has been this year.

That's a lot of over thinking.

dude its not over thinking. You can see it in the stats before and after. Neither of those players has been the same at all and it is reason to be concerned. It happened to bobby Abreu too after his big performance his career was never the same. Its the curse of the all star game it seems like. I just don't know why they need to play it just do like the nfl nobody watches that pro bowl you just get the honor of being named to it why bother playing the game? makes zero sense the season is too long. why risk injury and messing up your swing???

It IS over thinking. First of all, every player is different. Can't compare Hanley to Uggla to Stanton. Second, you can't name all the players that have had problems with the home run derby and then exclude all the ones that haven't. It's a cool story bro, but it's nonsense.

It is well documented and proven that the home run contest causes a player to have a bad second half. If someone does good in the second half then it is not the normal case. it is a hitting coaches worst nightmare coming true when he sees his player in the batter box in the contest. trust me.

no Hanley only played half the season last year. And this year he only has 11 homeruns and is batting 275... Marcell Ozuna is having a better year then him.... That is not the player he was before. That is not the numbers of the games best player. Not at all. He is average now. That's my point. And we already talked about Uggla. Look it up if you don't believe me. I'm not making up this.

CONCLUSION
Home Run Derby curse, fact or fiction? We have no choice but to conclude that it’s fiction. If we consider all the ways that the statistics should behave if there is no curse, we find that they consistently match that model. Certainly, some players will have a decline in power-hitting statistics from the first half of the season to the second after participating in the Derby, but it is clear from the analysis that this would have occurred for those players regardless of whether they chose to participate or not.

Hanley is OPSing 50 pts higher than ozuna and has 10 more SB than him this year you goofball.
