Figure I’d post this before the HR Derby starts up.
Pick to win it all : Ryan Howard.
I was at the HR Derby in 2006 when he won it all at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. St Louis is close to his home town, I don’t think he’ll disappoint.
Runner Up? I’ll go with Albert Pujols.
He doesn’t hit many in batting practice that I’ve seen, but that’s just his approach – hit line drives. I think he’ll be there at the end.
Longest HR of the night prediction? Prince Fielder.
After seeing him in Cleveland, I think he pulls a little off the ball when he tries to hit homers, resulting in line drives or grounders to second.
Player most likely to hang a goose egg? I’ll go with Brandon Inge.
He’s got some pop with 21 HR, but nerves will get the best of him – like Jason Bay in his first derby.
Player that isn’t an All Star but would win it all if he was in this derby? Matt Stairs.
With Pat Burrell close behind. Those guys batting practice approach is to see how far they can hit every single ball, with results.
