Actually, it'll be the Coors Field BABIP derby *hit by a bus*
when someone from this year's Derby does worse in the 2022 Derby, it'll because derbying at Coors affects you on the *explodes*
May 1: the Derby has been traded to Dunedin along with $50 million for Tommy Milone
i am so, so, so excited about this.
