Yeah considering that half of Jeter's game is his speed.

And the Red Sox have two hitters as good as or better than anyone on the Yankees.

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, if we going 3-4-5-6, I'd still have to vote for the Mets. Sorry, but if Crede is a .300-30-100 guy, so is Moises.

At least Moises has attained those totals at some point in his career and was projected to last year over a full season.

Crede on the other hand had a career year last year and still only hit 283-30-94.

For the Mets, LoDuca is in between Reyes and Beltran, so that takes Reyes out of the equation.


Half of the voting options aren't the heart and/or aren't players who bat in order. :-b

The Mets, Indians, and Twins players listed don't bat consecutivly


Nor do the Yankees or Phillies.


Yes the Yankees do.

He said consecutively, not heart.

Jeter-Abreu-ARod hit in order.

The poll just has the order mixed up.

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.
