A pitcher competing with sluggers? Yes please.

According to Bovada (, Twitter: @BovadaLV), ace pitcher, not hitter, Madison Bumgarner is at 10 to 1 odds of being in the Home Run Derby:

Will Madison Bumgarner be in the 2016 Home Run Derby?

Yes +1000 (10/1)

No -2500 (1/25)

Bumgarner not only wants to participate in the Derby, but he thinks he could win it as well. When he's launching bombs like these and hitting home runs at the same pace as Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, who are we to doubt him?

Sadly, his manager, Bruce Bochy, has stated that he will not be participating in the Derby. Of course. Somehow, bettors still think he'll make it in.
