Our predictions for the Home Run Derby and MLB All-Star game

Aaron Judge vs. Giancarlo Stanton? American League vs. National League? The Marlins Park home-run statue vs. your eyeballs?

If you’re wondering about some of the biggest matchups in this year’s MLB Home Run Derby and the All-Star game, we are too. The derby is Monday night and is the most anticipated installment in a long time, with the potential Judge/Stanton matchup looming. Tuesday’s All-Star game doesn’t “count” this year. It, thankfully, won’t determine home-field advantage in the World Series but that might making it even more fun.
