AL Candidates HRs:
Chris Davis: 37
Robinson Cano: 21
Prince Fielder: 16
Yoenis Cespedes: 15

NL Candidates HRs:
Pedro Alvarez: 24
Michael Cuddyer: 16
David Wright: 13
Bryce Harper: 13

I'm an O's fan so how can I not pick Chris Davis with his 37 HRs?  But I will, I'm going Prince Fielder.

Cuddy wins. No brainer

I'll be pulling for Harper and Cuddyer. I like Cuddyer as a dark horse. I'm betting 100 dollars - 75 on Pedro Alvarez, 25 on Cuddyer.

David Wright looked up to Michael Cuddyer as a kid living in the same area.  The dude has 16 HRs.  It's not that bad.

I thought he won it at Chase Field and stunk it up last year?

It's weird.  Prince Fielder won it last year but Cano is on the Yanks so he's on the roster too because it's in NYC.  IDK.

Cano didn't hit a single home run last year.

How can people pick against Chris Davis? His swing is so smooth and effortless, he can conserve a lot of energy for the later rounds.

If he gets into a nice groove, it's over.

Over/under on the amount of times Chris Berman annoys us with his "back back back back back"s?

Since it's in New York City, he'll give you a, "That one's hit to Syracuse."  Or "That one's going to Albany".
