With Yankee Stadium’s short porch in right there’s no doubt the lefties will have the upper hand tonight.
Who will win the Derby this year?

Updates To Come:

7:19: When asked about hitting one of out the ballpark [a feat never been done before in Yankee Stadium with a fair ball] Hamilton said “You guys know that little opening where the subway goes through… watch out.”

8:16: Mr. October threw out the first pitch to Jeter. Jeet’s pick for tonight: Josh Hamilton.

8:35: Sizemore hit a beautiful blassst to right that landed in the opening between the bleachers and box seats. Sweet swing.

8:51: Utley made a great late push but it may not be enough. Utley ends up with 5. Longoria: 3. Uggla: 6. Sizemore: 6.

9:05: Berkman jumps out in front with 8.

9:14: Morneau ties Berkman, but was looking mighty tired after all those drives.

9:21: Braun makes a late stab, pushing him into the second round. Ham up next.

9:52:28 home runs. Josh Hamilton [my pick] is a beast. He already has fans of any and every team loving him. Longest: 518 ft… ridiculous.

10:03: Right about now I don’t think anyone cares about the other batters. What they’re thinking: When is it Josh’s turn again?

10:27: Hamilton makes it look easy. If he doesn’t win it everyone will go nuts.

10:53: He didn’t win the trophy but he was the highlight of the night. *Bowing down to Josh Hamilton*
