Morning Headlines: Home Run Derby

Most mornings, we'll lead off the day with some AM headlines -- but not your traditional ones. Rather we'll focus on one game or story and write headlines that are completely inconsequential and insignificant to the outcome of the game. We'll give a few examples and then you'll play in the comments. Best headline (read: the one that makes us laugh the hardest) will get a shoutout in this space the next day. We'll provide the box score for the game as that can lend itself to plenty of content. Let's have some fun. The more insignificant, the better!

[Home Run Derby recap and tracker].

-Inge a non-factor in Derby

-Pujols: 'This was a great achievement'

-Fielder and Cruz put on 'show' for St. Louis

Your Derby headlines in the comments.
