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 last year's last place finisher, Robinson Cano.
Going 0-fer in last year's Derby hasn't phased him, as he's coming into the Derby having hit 21 homers so far this season. While not known for the moon shots guys like Fielder and Davis can hit, Cano is averaging 74 Altuves per dinger this year, topped off by this 81.6 Altuve shot in Minnesota.
