Picking Perfect Home Run Derby Teams for Robinson Cano and David Wright
Scott Rovak-USA TODAY Sports

Believe it or not, the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Game is already about a month away.

That means Robinson Cano and David Wright only have a few weeks to ponder their Home Run Derby squads. MLB announced today that the Yankees star and Mets star have been named the two captains for this year's Derby, which will take place on July 15 at Citi Field:

This isn't Cano's first rodeo as a Home Run Derby captain. He picked a squad for last year's Home Run Derby in Kansas City, notably ticking off the locals by not choosing Royals star Billy Butler.

Neither Cano nor Wright has to worry about spurning the locals this year. They just have to worry about picking players who can bring the thunder and put smiles on faces.

In a perfect world—i.e. my world, because I said so—their teams would consist of the following players.
