Thome. He hits for more power and last year he cut down on his strikeouts by almost 50 which resulted in a higher batting average.

Thome because he will have more opportunities to drive in runs.

Thome-even without knowing what that park is going to be like you have to like all the talent surrounding him in the lineup.

Thome even though I think he will come down a bit in the four categories that these guys mean anything in. My guess is it'll be a lot closer than last year between these two.

Neither

I say neither. I beleive Thome's numbers will drop off this year, (home vs road last year, new league/pitching, Philliy phanatics etc.) and Delgado, despite have a monster second half, is a risk as well. You might be better off trying to use your recources elsewhere, (outfield, or one of those slugging shortstops) and taking a chance on a semi-sleeper first basemen. Konerko will probably go later than the two you mentioned, and he puts up solid numbers. Everyone is saying that Jeremy Giambi is in the best shape of his career, and his OBP suggests that he could have a breakout year as an everyday 1b. Derek Lee will steal some bases for you, and Durazo (if he qualifies) might be a good power pick up. What does everyone think?

Thome, hands down. Even if he drops a bit in production adjusting to a new league, he'll be better than Delgado. Curious, are you trying to choose between the two or are considering these the top 2?? 8-o
