Home Run Derby thread: Troy Tulowitzki, Justin Morneau represent the Rockies

Justin Edmonds

Go Rockies!

Rockies sluggers Troy Tulowitzki and Justin Morneau are getting set to participate in the 2014 Home Run Derby at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Tulo is taking part in his first career derby after hitting a National League-best 21 home runs in the first half. Well, that's tied for the best, with Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton, who will also represent the NL.

Morneau is entering his third derby, and first since winning the 2008 event at Yankee Stadium. That night, Morneau outlasted Josh Hamilton, who had arguably the most memorable derby performance in history. A year before that, Morneau finished in fifth place after hitting four first-round homers and losing in a swing-off to Albert Pujols. Matt Holliday, who was a Rockie back then, put on a bit of a show of his own but settled for third.

Here are the rosters for both the NL and AL squads:

NL

Troy Tulowitzki
Giancarlo Stanton
Todd Frazier
Yasiel Puig
Justin Morneau

AL
