The only contestant on my fantasy team this year is Texiera. I think I'm going to pick him but I can also see Abreu or C-Lee winning it.


Didn't Berkman win it last year?

But anyway... I'll go with Bobby Abreu. Guys like Ortiz and Tex swing for the fences on every AB which to me is why they have huge HR totals. Abreu is more of a "true" hitter IMO, which means if he kicks the power up a notch he'd be a step above the more one-dimensional guys like Andruw/Lee/Ortiz. And I'm not saying that means they're only HR threats who don't have good BA's... I'm saying they swing for the fences every single time which to me means they don't have a lot of room to increase their power.

No, Tejada won it. Right field is a little more favorable in the Copa so I'll say a left hander....Choi. He's been streaky as hell this year so maybe it's 1 home run or 30 for him.

I'd love for C. Lee or Tex to win it (Tex is more powerful as a lefty though, so that'll help)

But i think it's gonna be Ortiz... :-t
