    I think we can safely assume that Cuddyer will end up winning the derby.

    Good for Cuddyer, he’s having a great season! I don’t like Harper over Brown though.

    Little known fact: Michael Cuddyer has the longest average home run distance of any Derby participant.

      To be fair, though, you’d have to include Cuddyer’s 18 hits closest to being HR’s to be an equal comparison to Chris Davis. Alternatively, if I take Chris Davis’s 15 top HR his “Cuddyer equivalent average” is bigger than Cuddyer’s.

      Widely known fact: Cuddyer plays half his games at Coors Field.

        9 HR at home; 6 HR on the Road — predominately at parks like Petco, AT&T, and Dodger Stadium. Do we really have to go through this again? For every advantage you get hitting at Coors Field, you have just as much disadvantage playing 75% of your division road games in extreme pitchers parks.

        Even then, Coors Field is 11th in the MLB for HRs according to ESPN’s park factor. It’s a doubles and triples stadium, not one where the ball goes over the wall a lot, like PHI, CIN, BAL, MIL, etc.

          Of his 15, 9 are at home, 1 at SD 1 at SF and 1 at WSH, the other 3 were 2 at BOS and 1 at MIL, not exactly pitcher parks…
