I love the All-Star game, Tonight is my favorite the Home Run Derby. I never make predictions on the Home Run Derby, the reason, is it is so unpredictable. I am just going to cheer for Prince Fielder, and I am so glad we sent the best Texas Ranger to the Home Run derby, so excited to see what Prince can do. There is a new bracket system, for the Home Run Derby.
Albert Pujols Vs Kris Bryant
Joc Pederson Vs Manny Machado
Josh Donaldson Vs Anthony Rizzo
Todd Frazier Vs Prince Fielder
While I am hoping and cheering for Prince Fielder to take the whole thing, I am really interested in the Pujols vs Bryant matchup. There could be a rookie battle, between Pederson and Bryant. I would love to see that.
Good Luck tonight for Prince Fielder.
