The Home Run Derby Thread

HRDerbyCaptureI was debating whether or not to do this but I figured, what the hell. We can spend a few hours complaining about Chris Berman, make fun of Pitbull and root for Robinson Cano‘s AL squad to win the derby.

Your participants:

Robinson Cano NYY (AL Team Captain) (L)
Chris Davis BAL (L)
Yoenis Cespedes OAK (R)
Prince Fielder DET (L)

David Wright MYN (NL Team Captain) (R)
Pedro Alvarez PIT (L)
Bryce Harper WSH (L)
Michael Cuddyer COL (R)

With five of the right batters lefties, I think it’s safe to assume that the Pepsi Porch in right field may be very active tonight. And even though it may be his home field, David Wright usually doesn’t hit as many home runs at Citi Field as he does on the road (three in Queens and 10 elsewhere so far in 2013) so it will be interesting to see what happens tonight.
