Boston is the hardest one. Though, if you go 3-4-5-6, its the White Sox. They throw in a .300-30-100 guy in the 6th spot in Crede.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

Joe Crede has never bat over .283 in a full season, has a career avg of .262, has hit 30 HR exactly once, and has never drove in more than 94 runs, with his second most in a season being 75. Not sure he qualifies for the .300-30-100 tag.
Well, it looks like we've effectively proven that most people on the cafe are homers, at least when it comes to voting in polls.
And yes, I voted for the White Sox...my rationale being that they are the only option listed that
1) Actually bats 3-4-5
2) Are all good contact and power hitters.
3) All have had multiple excellent seasons. I'll take having guys who are a little bit on the older side and have proven themselves over depending on a younger guy who might be the next Willie Mays, but is more likely the next Brady Anderson. And for the record, Thome is the only guy in there who I would expect to decline due to age or consider a major injury risk.
