Why is Troy Glaus in it? It is 10 years too late for him to compete in this........anyways, who do you think will win? I am going for Ryan Howard.

I agree with Howard, but Glaus is in it because of the # of hrs he has

Im not sure if hes going to win, but im definately rooting for Wright.
idk if he has the right swing for a home run derby, but i cant vote against him.

Hands Down :roll: :lol: . Give me a break. This one is so close it's not even funny. Tejada has already won a HR derby. Ortiz is killing the ball. Berkman always finshes high in HR derby's. By no means does Howard have this hands down

Shane P. Hallam
07-10-2006, 02:30 PM
It'll be Wright. Dye and Poppi will be tired after their 19 inning duel. Tejada won't be into it. Wright is a beast.

07-10-2006, 02:32 PM
I hope Dye, but I think it'll be Ortiz.

Berkman, he is always close, and PNC favors lefties. He is batting lefty and will finally win

Berkman, he is always close, and PNC favors lefties. He is batting lefty and will finally win

could be, but i think it will favor Howard more so than Berkman. I'm saying Howard over Papi, who will wear out in the final round.

Voted Howard.

Woody page said Howard is creating a strategy w/ the same pitcher that Bobby Abreu hit his record off of so he said get to vegas and put some $ on him.

07-10-2006, 03:15 PM
Big Papi.

Ok, well maybe you have a point there lol, forgot about that, but I doubt it has any affect on him still...

Shane P. Hallam
07-10-2006, 04:23 PM
I don't know, I think Dye and Ortiz may just not be up for it. I doubt they pull a Jason Bay, but they won't win. That whittles it down some.

Biggest underdog is Troy Glaus at 10-1.

The winner will be Miguel Tejada

Miguel Cabrera!

Yea that was from before.

I win. Cabrera was killin 'em.

Jay
07-10-2006, 07:48 PM
I can't believe Miguel Cabrera is only 23. He's still got a good 15 years ahead of him and he's already hit nearly 100 HR's...

Unless he leaves Florida (or the team), which he probably will soon, he won't put up huge numbers. Hopefully they get a new stadium down here.

As of right now this is the worst home run derby I have ever watched. A major letdown from last year, which was the second greatest home run derby behind the one in Boston.
