Just finished watching it, really expected it to come down to Stanton and Cespedes but my prediction was honestly Cespedes coming out victorious again.
Todd really surprised me considering he only had 2 to start the Derby, but his 2nd appearance really had me out of my seat at times.
Overall this year's derby was meh, most likely due to the new rules about having 7 outs instead of the usual 10, I'm pretty sure that changed the entire derby and the player's attitude coming into each at-bat.
As for Trout being the MVP of the first half, I doubt it.. it was mostly Nelson Cruz, even though I don't like the guy.. or possibly Victor Martinez. Judging by MLB Network (daily viewer) Trout's 1st half was under the radar for me, mostly due to the fact that whenever I watch him, he's striking out 3 times or going 0-4 with a walk or RBI. Don't get me wrong, great player.. but I've seen at least 5 other players having a better year so far than he's having.
And oh yeah, wouldn't feel right without adding this monster shot
