Who you got?

Gotta go with Braun. Hopefully he doesn't suffer one of those post derby power droughts.

I have Braun and Sizemore on one of my teams. I voted for Braun but I hope Braun and Sizemore make quick exits and otherwise I think Josh Hamilton will win it.

I'll second this thought for Sizemore.

I am very disappointed that Braun is participating despite his hand injury. Hopefully he exits quickly. Same for Hamilton but I have a feeling he is going to win it.

I've got $50 on Hamilton @ +350 and $50 on Braun @ +800

Not bad odds on Braun at all. He's got the type of swing that can really work in the derby, only problem is short right field porch at Yankee stadium makes Hamilton and Utley the favorites.

I think Hamilton, Braun, Berk, and Morneau have the best shot of the 8 listed. I like Hamilton to win it.

You gotta take a lefty at The Stadium, so i'm taking Hamilton.
