Wanted to save this one in case the White Sox lost today... I have a pretty good idea who should win this and who will win it:

Carlos Quentin, hands down.

I also voted Quentin, though I think it could be close between Bay and he next season. For 2008 though Quentin was the 2nd best left fielder in baseball and he's a full decade younger than the guy who's at number one. He's on the cusp of super stardom.

I love Quentin, but I just had to vote for Bay. Had he not been toiling in obscurity in Pittsburgh for his whole career (until this year), he'd be universally recognized as one of the ten best hitters in the league, and possibly the best OF in all of baseball.

Quentin was having a better year this year, probably, but Bay has a longer track record.

Bay's 162-game average for his career:
.282/.375/.516, 31 HR, 103 RBI, 34 2B, 4 3B, 11 SB, 2 CS

Bay does have the track record, and is the obvious choice if Quentin's season proves to be a fluke, but I'll take TCQ! Usually I can laugh at the biased results of these types of polls, but the Sox truly have the best LF in the AL. Nice!

Yeah well now that he is in Boston, ESPN is going to crown him the best OF in all of baseball. They will talk about how much of a all around player he is compared to Manny Ramirez. So that obscurity is definately out the window. Soon everyone is going to hate this guy! I already do! **** BOSTON!

Bay does have a better track record, in a much weaker NL.

I think Carlos will be a consistent 25-30 HR guy, of course if he's healthy.

Blindly hating everyone who plays for the Red Sox is just as bad as the ESPN love for everyone who plays for the Red Sox.

Quentin is a great hitter, but defensively, I think he's a pretty average outfielder. The left fielder is usually the worst fielder in the outfield.

More like consistent 35-40 HR guy.
