That is correct.

I bet nobody could guess who I voted for :-B

For example, Reyes, Jeter and Rollins aren't in the "Heart of the Order" for their teams. They are in the top of the order.

The Yankees Heart is Abreu, Arod, Matsui.
The Mets is Beltran, Wright, Delgado.
You got Boston right.
The two Jones' and McCann should be up there.

You get the idea..


The Yankees' "heart" is actually Abreu, A-Rod and Giambi.
Phillies - Utley, Howard, Burrell


Tough one. Yankees, Cubs or Mets... too close to call.

Because I have A-Rod and Giambi, I'll have to say Yankees. :-)

Why should the poll be changed? Let him ask about the best heart of the order if he wants to.

I voted Yankees.

I voted Yankees.

Because the question doesn't correspond to the answers.

Boston easily here. Ortiz is the best left-handed hitter in MLB, Manny is up there with Pujols as the two best right-handed hitters in baseball, and Drew is an outstanding 5-hole hitter.

Drew is "outsanding"? I disagree. Drew is a good 5 hole hitter, which is why I didn't consider Boston. If the question was asking about the best 3-4 combo, I'd say you were probably right.

For real.I'll take the Braves boys over at three of the options listed above, no question (Rockies, Mets as they're listed; it's close if you stub Delgado for Reyes, and Minnisota), and put them up against Cleveland, both Chicagos, and Philly. The Sox and the Yanks are the only teams with 3 legit 900+ OPS guys, and actually you put in Jeter instead of Giambi, so I'd put the Braves as equal to the Yanks option, too.

FWIW, Soriano isn't in the heart of the order either. I'm liking the way the Mets are looking a lot this year though...
