Home Run Derby 2010: How Many Home Runs Will David Ortiz Hit In Round One?

The most prestigious, exclusive and honorable event in all of baseball takes place Monday night, when the likes of Corey Hart, Hanley Ramirez and Nick Swisher -- legends in their sport -- put their home-run hitting talents on display for the world to witness. I am speaking, of course, of the 2010 Home Run Derby.

This is relevant to us because David "That's what I do for a living -- hit bombs" Ortiz will be participating, making him a four-time participant in the event (you probably get a neat medal for that or something).

Anyways, that means it's time for everyone's favorite game: How Many Home Runs Will David Ortiz Hit In The First Round?

And now, a brief collection of some numbers: Ortiz hit 3 in 2004, 17 in 2005 and 10 in 2006 (that's an average of 10, by the way). BoDog currently has Ortiz as the second-favorite to win the whole thing (13/4), just behind Miguel Cabrera (11/4). They also have Papi has the odds-on favorite to hit the most in Round 1.
