Mark Trumbo represents the Orioles in tonight’s home run derby in San Diego, California.
He’s going to win. I bet you are wondering why or how.
I could bore you with stats like he is leading the majors in home runs, but I’m taking more of a fan’s perspective. Maybe a more superstitious look at things.
It’s pretty simple. Trumbo’s got the mojo. Real power. A great swing right now. It’s his year. Oh, and he’s in a contract year. Somehow, the guys in a contract year always perform at a top level.
Actually, it’s impossible to predict the winner of the home run derby. It’s whoever has the hot bat that night. We have a great feeling he’s going to do well and we wish him a lot of luck.
We can’t wait for the All Star Game, Tuesday, when 5 players represent the Orioles. That’s the most of any American League team.
Go All Stars–Go O’s.
