POLL: Who would win a Mets Home Run Derby?

Only three current Mets have ever participated in Home Run Derbies: David Wright (twice), Chris Young (while with the Diamondbacks) and Bobby Abreu (while with the Phillies). Only Abreu performed well on that stage.

But the Mets do boast their share of players with legitimate pop, as evidenced by the fact that they — do not adjust your monitors — lead the National League in homers since June 17. So who would win a Mets Home Run Derby?
