Red Sox DH David Ortiz talked Tuesday with ESPN's Steve Berthiaume about how he picked his team for the Home Run Derby. Check out the video above.

"First of all I talked to [Adrian Gonzalez], my teammate. We hit in the same group in batting practice. I said 'Gonzo, you should go with me to the Home Run Derby,' and he was like 'Papi if you want me to I will.' And then I called my boy [Jose] Bautista. He told me the same thing. At the same time [Robinson] Cano told me he would do it. Cano's one of my boys. And that's how I put my team together. It was kind of easy for me."
