Prince Fielder is the 2012 State Farm Home Run Derby winner! 

Congrats, Prince, on your second Home Run Derby crown!

Only the second person to ever win the event more than once (Ken Griffey Jr. won it three times).

Now, with the 2012 derby in the books, I want to take a look at seven other players I would like to see in the 2013 Home Run Derby at Citi Field in Queens, NY. 

There are plenty of guys out there who I feel could put on a show in 2013. Especially since some will have a year or 12 of experience under their belts. Some guys say that participating in the derby hurts their swing for the second half of the season. 

I say phooey to that notion!

The Home Run Derby is something for the fans. It's the most fun out of all sports' all-star festivities, definitely blowing away the NFL Pro Bowl weekend.

So why not give the fans what they want and put on a show? 

Here are my eight picks for next year's State Farm Home Run Derby.
