While a lot of this morning’s Home Run Derby analysis is either focusing on Nelson Cruz’ welcome-to-the-public-eye performance, or Chris Berman’s incredibly-aged shtick

King of the home runs. Keep in mind Fielder beat out overwhelming crowd favorite Albert Pujols, 2006 Derby champ Ryan Howard and the hot-swinging Cruz to capture the crown. In the final round, Fielder hit six bombs to Cruz’ five, and demonstrated a swing that’s capable of hitting the ball a country mile — provided a country mile measures 503 feet (we checked, it does).
Just in case you missed any of Fielder’s performance, there’s video; although, I don’t expect it to last that long. Who knows? Maybe MLB will turn a blind eye to the free advertising. Doubtful, but you never know.

It’s time for fantasy baseball installment, featuring Eric Amzallag of UnlockedSports.com. Eric discusses who you should be keeping an eye on as the season progresses.
