    Who wins the Home Run Derby?

    It's at 7:00 CST tonight. There's a new format this year.

    I'm going with Giancarlo Stanton.

    Going to be a homer and say Dozier. I'm glad he got picked for this. It'll be fun to see Morneau back in the cities too.

    I find waching the hitters take pitch after pitch after pitch without swinging more brutal than Berman's call. Besides having an OUT counter, have a taking a pitch without swinging counter.

    I don't know if Stanton will win, but he will hit the most impressive homers, that's for sure.

    Re: Who wins the Home Run Derby?

    Why haven't the Twins put Dozier 3rd or 4th...he leads off and barely has any RBIs to show for having 18 HRs.

    Because he's a much better leadoff hitter than he is a cleanup guy. Only Mauer, Willingham, and Suzuki have a better OBP, and those guys aren't exactly speedsters that can steal bases the way that Dozier can. Dozier does lead the team in runs scored, by a wide margin, for what it's worth.

    The Twins' plan, the last I heard, was to use Aaron Hicks as their leadoff guy once he ripens a bit more in the minors (he did bat leadoff last year, but was absolutely terrible).
