Default Re: home run derby

including phillies ryan howard heres the linup from postgazette.com. no one really of note especially looking at who WONT be in it:

The rest of tonight's field is set to include: Berkman (24 homers), Florida's Miguel Cabrera (15) and the Mets' David Wright (20) for the NL plus American League stars David Ortiz of Boston (the major-league leader with 31), Toronto's Troy Glaus (23) and the Chicago White Sox's Jermaine Dye (24). If you're looking to handicap that field, Ortiz has bashed six homers in the past week since accepting a Derby invite -- he wants to raise charity money for a heart clinic in his native Dominican Republic -- and Dye has bashed four.

Contrast that list to the slugging All-Stars present in PNC Park tonight, but spectating only: the White Sox's Jim Thome (30), Pujols, Washington's Alfonso Soriano (27), Lee (26), the Mets' Carlos Beltran (25), the White Sox's Paul Konerko (21), Toronto's Vernon Wells (21), Bay (21), Atlanta's Andruw Jones (20), the Yankees' Alex Rodriguez (19) and the Angels' Vladimir Guerrero (18).
