Home run derbyWe've reached the All-Star break and both the Chicago Cubs and White Sox find themselves atop their respective divisions. The Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Philadelphia Pillies and Arizona Diamondbacks are the other division leaders. Currently, the Tampa Bay Rays and St. Louis Cardinals are the two wild cards. The regular season will resume on Thursday. Until then, the baseball world shifts to New York's Yankee Stadium for the 85th Annual All-Star Game.
Tonight is the State Farm Home Run Derby. The American League will be represented by Evan Longoria (Tampa Bay Rays), Justin Morneau (Minnesota Twins), Josh Hamilton (Texas Rangers) and Grady Sizemore (Cleveland Indians). The National League representatives are Lance Berkman (Houston Astros), Ryan Braun (Milwaukee Brewers), Dan Uggla (Florida Marlins) and Chase Utley (Philadelphia Phillies).
Any thoughts on a winner for tonight's home run derby? Though always difficult to predict, I'm leaning toward Chase Utley.
