2009 Home Run Derby Contest

Tonight Thorzul Will Rule becomes your official home of the All-Star Break as the festivities get kicked off with the Home Run Derby. I'll be opening up the blog to a real-time open forum where all card lovers can feel free to discuss the evening's exhibition, root for their favorite player, and maybe even talk a little trash. To make things more interesting, I'm announcing a contest that anyone out there can take part in, with a nice prize for the winner. All you have to do is leave a guess in the comments section of this post about who will win tonight's Home Run Derby. Guess the player's name and how many total home runs you predict they will hit tonight. You can guess any player whether he has been picked already or not, but you must make a numerical guess that no one has made yet for that player. Whoever is closest to the actual total will win a nice prize package related to the Brewers' all-time leader in home runs.

Tonight's scheduled participants:
AL
Nelson Cruz
Carlos Pena
Joe Mauer
Brandon Inge
NL
Prince Fielder
Adrian Gonzalez
Ryan Howard
Albert Pujols

Happy guessing, good luck, and I'll see you tonight!
