Home Run Derby chatter

There having the Home Run Derby press conference now. I picked up a Diet Coke to make sure I stayed awake. Karl Ravech from ESPN is the moderator.

Picking a winner for this event would seem pretty impossible. I’d say Lance Berkman, who can swing lefty with pop. The Puma is my choice.

Josh Hamilton is a monster, however. Plus he’s a great story if he wins. He has 71-year-old Clay Council, throwing to him. He’s a guy from his hometown. I don’t know Josh whatsoever, but listening to him talk today he seems like a genuine dude who’s having fun with this and keeping his perspective.

Dante Girardi, who knows his baseball, told me Dan Uggla would win.
