On July 9th, the MLB will have it's annual Home Run Derby during All-Star weekend. There are a few newbies in the derby and few guys who have been here a few times.

Matt Kemp leads the National League side. With him are Carlos Beltran, Carlos Gonzalez and Andrew McCutchen. McCutchen is an injury replacement for Giancarlo Stanton.

Robinson Cano leads the American League side. With him are Prince Fielder, Mark Trumbo and Jose Bautista. Robinson Cano is the defending champion.

Amongst the newcomers for this derby, there are: Carlos Beltran, who is having a phenomenal season in St. Louis; Andrew McCutchen, who is leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to a share of first place in the NL Central; Mark Trumbo, who has helped lead the resurgence of the Angels and Carlos Gonzalez, who is having himself a great season over in Colorado.

I will pick the players I see getting through the First round, second round and then the winner.
