My Predictions for the Home Run Derby 2016


The 2016 Home Run Derby field has been set for Monday inside the spacious, yet beautiful, Petco Park. In the first round Todd Frazier (23 home runs) will take on Carlos Gonzalez of the Colorado Rockies. Meanwhile Mark Trumbo of the Baltimore Orioles (26 home runs) will take on Corey Seager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The other bracket will include Adam Duvall of the Cincinnati Reds facing off head-to-head with Wil Myers of the hometown San Diego Padres while Robinson Cano of the Seattle Mariners will face off with Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins. Who will take it home? Here are my predictions for what they are worth.



Trumbo
Seager
                           Trumbo
                           Stanton
Cano
Stanton

                                                      Stanton
                                                      Duvall

Frazier
Gonzalez
                        Frazier
                        Duvall

Myers
Duvall




Trumbo will move on to face Stanton while Frazier will face off with Duvall. In the semifinals I have Trumbo being upset by Giancarlo while Frazier is upset by Duvall, sorry Jersey boy. In the finals I can’t see anyone beating Giancarlo Stanton though, especially with the timeouts you’re allowed to call in the first two rounds and the pair of timeouts you’re allowed in the finals. He won’t gas out this time. Stanton wins.
