National League

Jim Thome
Sammy Sosa
Lance Berkman
Barry Bonds


American League

David Ortiz
Hank Blalock
Rafeal Palmeiro
Miguel Tejada



I'm going with Thome in the NL and Ortiz in tha AL with Thome beating Ortiz in the final.
(I'm sure youre surprised I picked Thome
)

They were showing the replay from last year's derby a while ago, Albert Pujols hit 14 hr's in one round to tie the derby record set by Jason Giambi in 2001.

It should be a great Homerun Derby this year, balls have been flying out of Houston all year and they have some huge bats in the lineups. I didnt do the math but it looks like the NL has about 1,800 homers between the four of them.


Jim Thome flew his batting practice pitcher to Houston with him to pitch to him in the derby.

So, who do YOU think will win the HR Derby tonight??

NL - Bonds(681),Sosa(555),Thome(409),Berkman(142) = 1,787

I have to go with Sammy Sosa, his career numbers at Minute Maid Park are awesome.

Thome is slightly leading Bonds after about 13,000 votes.

Berkman vs Tejada

Pretty ironic that the two players in the finals are the two injury substitutes. Tejada replaced Giambi and Berkman for Griffey Jr.

Miguel Tejada broke the single round record in the 2nd round with 15 homeruns, of which about half entirely left the stadium.


VS.

TEJADA !!



He beat Berkman 5-4 and still had 5 outs left to go.

Well Sosa certainly dissapointed me. I bet he'd like the first 8 outs of the first round back :-/

That really sucked for some guys, like Sosa and I really thought Thome would do better.
