Home Run Derby Standings – May 2010

The Home Run Derby is two months completed and a lot of the same names are near the top, but several have also fed their power withdrawal.

For a long period of time, we had a mother/daughter combo reigning the top of the leader board (Swing and a Mrs & The Ball Busters). But thanks to Prince Albert’s 3 HR performance on Sunday May 29, a third of the teams have made a leap in the standings and disrupted our mother/daughter duo.

Leading after the month of May is Team Bennett with 42 long balls. And that’s with Jason Kubel as their 4th player (6 hr). With the air warming up in the Land of Lakes, Kubel could start sending a lot more balls over the wall.

Second belongs to Kemp for MVP (40 hr) who was in third after April so he is still moving up. He’s also the only team with Matt Kemp on his team. This could either secure or cripple him a victory.

Third is a team mentioned above, Swing and a Mrs (39 hr). One downside with her team, she was the only team to pick Kendry Morales. And if you haven’t seen any highlights lately, Morales hit a walk-off grand slam on Saturday and proceeded to break his leg celebrating at home plate. He will be out at well over the allotted 20 days for a trade, so Swing and a Mrs is giving everyone a 20 day head start for June.

What teams hit the most homers in May? Dirty Needles (36hr) hit 24 followed by Team Bennett, Swing and a Mrs, and Kettle Poppers (35hr) with 22 home runs. If someone had picked Corey Hart, their name would be on this list thanks to his 10 hr in the past 16 games.
