Home Run Derby

Should we look into this? Just a crapshoot isn't it?
Who do you like?
Stanton and Joey Bats are the favorites. Any sleepers?
Am I a degenerate for even bringing this up?

We are all degenerates amigo!! Lol. You beat me to it with this post. I love the Cubans tonight! Give me Puig and Cespedes!!

Copy/paste from something I stumbled upon via statfox...

The AL has won at the derby in six of the past seven years as big boppers like Prince Fielder (2009, 2012), David Ortiz (2010), Robinson Cano (2012) and most recently Yoenis Cespedes (2013) all taking the crown. Cespedesí win last year was the first by a right-handed hitter since Vladimir Guerrero did so in 2007, and the only chance at a lefty winning this year will be Justin Morneau, as all the other competitors are righties.
Target Field has been a tough place to hit home runs in and it ranks 20th among MLB stadiums this year in homers per game (1.63). One of the factors that could have attributed to this is the fact that the Twins do not have many power hitters, with Brian Dozier -- a Home Run Derby participant -- being the only player with double-digit blasts on the team, and the club ranking 25th in total four-baggers. With all these factors considered, the field should be thought of as neutral with no real advantage for either righties or lefties.

Let's have some fun!

I live in Mpls and it's very windy and cool. The wind will be blowing from the Northwest, which will favor only one leftie in the Derby, that being Justin Morneau. Take this info for what it's worth. I'm just going to sit back and root for either ex Twin Morneau or current Twin Brian Dozier (a long shot to win this).

Had $100 on both Puig and Cespedes at +350. So net +250. That was the plan all along, lol. Now Puig putting up a bagel was not in the plans...

Here's my dilemma. I like to root for my fellow countrymen, and really hope they do well. But he's a damn Dodger!! Unforgivable!!

JT, Nice call on the Derby. I'll most likely follow suit with the under in tonight's all star game as well.
