Before I get into any handicapping of the Derby I think it is important to remember that this is just a way to pass the time between meaningful action.
Like the All-Star Game itself, you do not want to go too heavy on this glorified batting practice session.
Last note before we break it down is that Derby is broken down into four brackets with winners advancing. Here is how I see it breaking down.
Coming into this home run derby the favorite is Bryce Harper because of how familiar he is with hitting at Nationals Park.
Freddie Freeman is the underdog against Harper, and I don’t think he has any chance in this. Harper is going to advance to the second round.
The only upset in this the first round is Javier Baez. He is only a slight underdog, but I think he has a really good chance to the pull upset.
This is a perfect event for him, and with the swag he is has I like him to pull the upset.
That makes the second round look like this:
Jesus Aguilar vs. Alex Bregman and Bryce Harper vs Javier Baez will be the second round matchup. I like Jesus Aguilar to win the big second round matchup.
His power has been out of this world as of late, and I think he has the power to sustain it into the second round.
The popular pick is going to be Bryce Harper, but he has the weight of the world on his shoulders and I think that will weigh on him.
Javier Baez will pull the upset.
I think the final it’s Baez’s to lose. He is going to have the stanima to win it in the finals.
