In this feature CNBC Contributor Herb Greenberg takes down the traders over their picks. Click here to find out why Herb and and the guys are clashing over Hasbro (HAS), Hansen Natural (HANS), and True Religion Apparel (TRLG).

When CNBC Contributor and Senior MarketWatch columnist Herb Greenberg is in the house – expect a “Street Fight.”

Of course, Herb and the guys are friends – but they’re also what you might call competitive. And nothing brings Herb more satisfaction than attempting to take the traders down.

Round 1: Jeff Macke

First, Herb is lashing out at “The Lone Wolf” for his take on toymaker Hasbro (HAS). On April 23rd Jeff said "It's going to be a huge summer for Hasbro. Spiderman. Transformers…This is a great story. I continue to like the name. Be long."

Herb says most analysts feel the Spider-Man phenomenon has not spilled over to the toys and he feels HAS overpaid for the Marvel (MVL) licensing agreement.

Jeff Macke says Hasbro has other franchises and Spider-Man is a hit.

Dylan Ratigan rules for The Lone Wolf because HAS stock is up 74%.



Round 2: Guy Adami

Next, Herb is taking out his anger on The Negotiator for his call on beverage stock Hansen Natural (HANS). On May 29th Guy said, “I've liked Hansen for a while and I still like Hansen…the balance sheet is fantastic."

Herb says the company has been earning less money on higher sales.

Guy Adami argues Hansen’s Vitamin Drink is hot.

Dylan Ratigan rules for Herb because HANS earnings have been inconsistent.

Round 3: Eric Bolling

It's been a while, but Herb and The Admiral are squaring off again - this time over True ReligionApparel (TRLG), a high-end jean maker. Last Thursday Eric said "True Religion.. I am absolutely on board… (They) are in all the right malls all the right spots."

Herb says the company suffers from serious credibility issues.

Eric Bolling argues Herb’s record hasn’t been very good and Yankee’s star A-Rod wears True Religion jeans.

Dylan Ratigan rules in favor of Herb Greenberg.

Herb wins!!!!
