Taken from the poll at Comcast SportsNet's site, who do you want up in Game 7 of the WS when it's tied in the bottom of the ninth with two outs? I'd say Dye.

EDIT: Whoops, I meant Griffey. Someone edit this please?

No Griffey?

Toss up between Dye and Quentin. I'm gonna go with Carlos though.

Konerko? I don't even want to see him in the first inning.

I meant to put Griffey instead of Crede. I messed up. Someone edit this please?

NOONE on this team is more clutch than Dye.

I was about five feet from the walk off homer by Quentin against the Angels in late May. I was also in the bleachers, naturally. So I have first hand experience seeing the cluch hitting of Quentin, and obviously all of the excessive cheering in that sold out crowd kind of made me jump on Quentin's wagon.

I pick TCQ. :smile:

I had a thought earlier today that Griffey hits a walkoff in game 7 against the cubs. the cubs will then have to find a way to market the #101 next year.

I want Paulie batting...

...for the other team.

I'd have to go with JD - after all, he was the Series MVP for us in 2005.

I want Quentin on, and JD at the plate. Somehow that would be magic.

Then again, a walkoff home run can come from the most unlikely of players

So it doesn't matter who is there, I want them to be successful. Hell, if it came down to it, it could be Paul Konerko's redemption for 2008.

You never know.

This brings up the question on if we do win the World Series, does Griffey retire, desiring for reaching the Holy Grail to be the final moment in his career?

Maybe he'll want to play a few more seasons. It's probably not as satisifying winning a title with a team you played with for only two months, compared to winning a title with a team you played the whole year with.

Depends on who he talks to for advice. Jerome Bettis or Brett Favre.

I say Crede. He's already come up with several clutch playoff hits. PK would be up there with Dye too.

Pleasant dilemma, I guess.

Great dilemma. But I would go with Crede. Cooler then the other side of the pillow in my mind. PK would be up there too. All about history. JD works too that RBI in G4 of WS is nice.

TCQ has been sick this season but Dye has been there done that. As the stupid commercial says....expierence is something to DYE for.

Shouldn't this also include "down by 1 run with two runners on base"?

Crede

Jermaine Dye has proven he's money in the WS.

b/u Crede:cool:

I'd feel very comfortable with Cabrera up in a situation where we just needed to get a hit. Over the last couple of months it seems like he never fails in that situation.

I'll go with Jermaine Dye. As others have said, he's been there, and done that.

And has the hardware to prove it.

Konerko, whenever he returns to this planet, is another good choice.

Griffey instead of Crede? :scratch:

I edited it, but replaced Konerko with Griffey. With the season Konerko is having, I can't see why he should be included.

Tough call between Dye and TCQ in my opinion, but I give the edge to Quentin.

So that he can ground into a double play?

Wow, I was expecting TCQ to be winning by a longshot. Turns out people like JD in the clutch a lot more.

Id want Quenton, he's a beast and he's the man, but my runner up is most def Jermaine Dye-no-mite!

I voted for Quentin. Dye is a pretty good choice too.

Dye because he's been in the WS before and had big hits. Quentin a close second, with Griffey third and then Thome. But I honestly haven't seen enough of Griffey lately, so his play over the next few weeks could really change that. Alexei would be fifth with Konerko sixth.

Jim Shorts

I'm going JD every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

He's been our best all around player this year, and has the experience edge over TCQ in playoff baseball.

While Crede might be one of my favorite all time Sox players, I don't have the faith in him this year with the back. He still hasn't caught up to a fast ball since early June.

Late in the game Thome always seems tired. Ten years ago I named my dog Griffey...but I can't say that I want him up in the bottom of the ninth in late October after a long season.

Big Game Jermaine got Shorts' vote.

Both TCQ and Dye have been clutch this year with Quentin's walk-off against the angels (on national tv I think) and that huge home run against texas a couple weeks ago and Dye's been no exception with his home-run in the ninth against the tigers. You really can't go wrong between the two.
