We get it. Not everybody is into the Home Run Derby. But some of you are and that’s totally fine. We’re here if you want to talk (or complain) about it.
Feel free to use this as an open thread to discuss the festivities at Citi Field this evening. Below you’ll find the eight participants for this year’s derby.
David Wright (NL Captain) – 13 home runs this season
Michael Cuddyer – 16 home runs this season
Bryce Harper – 13 home runs this season
Pedro Alvarez – 24 home runs this season
Robinson Cano (AL Captain) – 21 home runs this season
Prince Fielder (defending champion) – 16 home runs this season
Chris Davis – 37 home runs this season
Yoenis Cespedes – 15 home runs this season
In Matthew’s preview earlier today, he pegged Prince Fielder as the favorite. And as a two-time winner, he probably should be. O’s slugger Chris Davis obviously has a ton of hype coming into tonight’s event, but I’m hoping to see Bryce Harper put on a show.
