2009 Homerun Derby

The first four participants in this years Homerun Derby have been announced. They are Albert Pujols (31HR), Ryan Howard (20HR), Adrian Gonzalez (24HR), and Prince Fielder (22HR). These four guys are enough to make the American League shake in their cleats.

The one thing that worries me is Albert leads MLB with 31 homeruns and I just hope that this doesn't mess his timing up for the remainder of the season. That would be awful especially considering in the first half he hit more homeruns than most guys will all season.

I would love to see Pujols and A-Rod square off in one of these someday, or even Hamilton after watching the moonshots he was hitting off the wall behind me in the bleachers at Yankee Stadium last year. Homerun Derby is definitely a ton of fun if you can make it to one.
