Tonight is the 2015 MLB Home Run Derby and this year's event will show off (another) brand new format that is supposed to make everything a lot more exciting:

This year's contestants are as follows:

Albert Pujols (No. 1 seed) vs. Kris Bryant (No. 8)
Todd Frazier (No. 2) vs. Prince Fielder (No. 7)
Josh Donaldson (No. 3) vs. Anthony Rizzo (No. 6)
Joc Pederson (No. 4) vs. Manny Machado (No. 5).

What do you think about the new format? Who do you have taking home the trophy tonight?

Hopefully this doesn't get rained out. If it does, feel free to use this space as your open thread for the evening and talk amongst yourselves (feel free to do this even if it's on). The Yankees don't play again until Friday, but hopefully we'll all make it through the week without any regular season baseball.
