Homerun Derby 2009

If you watched the Homerun Derby last year you should know why I would like to see Josh Hamilton back in it this year. But what I dont get is last year one of the announcers said, "This homerun Derby will not be very interesting because there is too many white people in it." Now I probably shouldn't have used quotes because I don't think he said those exact words but the part about not being interesting because of the white people is spot on. He said he wanted more hispanics like Manny, Pujols, and A-rod. Now I totally agree that Manny, Pujols, and A-rod should be in the HRDerby every year, but, to say it wont be interesting because only white people are in it is uncalled for. Josh Hamilton put on a hell of a show last year and now is in the record books so I would hope he can get some credit this time around. I would like to see a HRDerby with Hamilton, Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, Albert Pujols and other sluggers such as Prince Fielder and maybe even an asian such as Shin-Soo Choo (which was my All-Star snub pick). What do you guys think on what the best HRDerby contestants would be this year?
