After such a positive reaction to my live-tweeting of last year's Derby bombs in Altuves, I'll be doing the same this year. To prepare, I thought I'd do a little analysis of the 8 beasts competing this season. Let's take a look at Pedro Alvarez, who is filling in for the injured Carlos Gonzalez.
A bit of an all-or-nothing slugger, Alvarez has 24 home runs coming into the Derby. He's averaging right at 75 Altuves per home run for 2013, including this 84 Altuve blast into the Allegheny River against Jose Altuve's Astros.
