Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins and Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays are the most truly effective choices in their respective leagues. A complete of 10 plays will compete in the Home Run Derby, five in each league. Troy Tulowitzki may be the captain for the National League team while Jose Bautista may be the captain for the American League team.

New Format

In 2010 the contest will have a fresh format with five players from each league getting 7 outs rather than 10 in the initial round. The ball player who hits the most homers in each league in the initial round gets a bye to the semifinals. Another two in each league will likely then face each other in the next round with the winners rendering it to the semifinals. The semifinal winners in each league will likely then advance to the final.

Home Run Derby Betting

The favourite has not always won this event and there’s not been a repeat champion since 1998-99 when Ken Griffey Jr. won it. Cespedes will soon be attempting to continue doing this season. Giancarlo Stanton is the obvious choice to win this year’s contest as he leads the National League in home runs. “If I didn’t get he to participate, I’d be in trouble,” Tulowitzki said. “He’s got the strength and God-given bat speed,” teammate Jeff Baker said. “No-one else is near him. He hits balls that physically are not designed to happen.”

Home Run Derby Picks

The pressure will soon be on Stanton to supply and while he will probably hit some majestic shots I don’t know he will win it. I should go with Bautista to take the title now around.
