i bet Steinbrenner would. i can see the smile on his face now :D
it would be cool if he got in, especially if he does better than Sheff did. Sheff struggled quite a bit. whatever, if he gets in than in would be a great thing to see.

He's among the leaders in Homeruns in the NL. you have to believe he would be invited.

I'm guessing because he's not Mr. Potato Head

i dont get it... Because's he's not a hulking freak who's body parts are too massive for his body.

Basically he's not a roid freak...

Let's temper this discussion *just* a little bit...

Lowell currently has, what, 21 home runs?

The most he has ever had in an entire season before is 24. [clearly, he should break that pr]

Now, let's look at some of the people within 2 or 3 home runs of him:
Barry Bonds, Javy Lopez, Jim Edmonds, Albert Pujols, Andruw Jones...

Then you've got your slow starters:
Jim Thome, Jeff Bagwell, Todd Helton, Lance Berkman...

Realistically, how many of you think he will remain in the top 5 or 10 for the rest of the year? He *could* have a freak season [a la Brett Boone], but I prefer to believe trends...

He is still developing his power...evidence which is provided through his doubles totals the past few years...not to say he hits in one of the least friendly hitters parks....This is not a freak thing.

I think these is the mike lowell will hit 30 or more homers for the next 3-5 years. This years he will get close to 40 is just my opionion. I also think he deserves going to the Derby.

rest of the year ? all he needs to do is stay top 10 for 1 month and he will be in the HR Derby.

I think that if Lowell hit 4 or 5 more homers before the break he will be in the derby.

As long as he makes the AS game and stays among the top 3-5 in HR, he is most definately a lock...

Yea it would be cool if he did make it to the Home Run Derby contest. He sure could make it if he keeps on hitting these Homers. He will probaly hit 6 or 7 more before the All star break but he does have a chance to make it!

He won't win a distance contest, but when the ball is right down the pipe, he can put it out...
