If homers are the most important thing, then you have to keep Thomas and Johnson in the lineup for sure, they have the most power.
So it comes down to Jeter or Renteria.
Jeter is playing 3 at home versus the White Sox (facing Loaiza, Colon, and Buerhle), then 3 in Boston.
Renteria has 3 at home versus the Cubs (facing Prior, Wood, and Zambrano), then 3 at Cincinnati.
That's a tough call, but I'll go with Renteria on a bit of a hunch.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
