I second Everett. The guy is always a hard out and a true gamer.

Although it is hard to vote against Iguchi, I dont think he is underrated. Ozzie named him the team MVP, he stands a good shot at winning ROY. My vote goes to Crede, chops or no chops, all he does is show up every day and play a ridiculously good third base while still hitting .250. From the sounds of some of our fellow WSI posters they make it seem like Crede is the next Mendoza.

Not sure why Crede is ahead of Uribe when Uribe has 4 more RBI's with 7 less HR's and a higher BA.

Timo Perez. That man is solid gold.

How about Pierzynski? After having to deal with the likes of Ben Davis and an obviously-done Sandy Alomar Jr., Pierzynski has made a huge difference on the team. I think he deserves a lot of credit for the maturation of Garland and Pierzynski plays with a little attitude and arrogance that has been beneficial for the Sox.

In addition, the picture of Pierzynski tossing the bat aside after the HR to beat the Dodgers is priceless. The look on his face says it all.

Here's hoping Pierzynski stays on the South Side for the next few years.

Go Sox! THIS IS OUR YEAR!

Well AJ has been a huge part of our success. In fact, I was going to put him as my choice but the more I thought about it, I realized that AJ does get most of the credit that he deserves. To me, Iguchi deserves a lot more than he is getting.

I'd like to make a case for Scott Podsednik. So, people will say he doesn't have a big on base percentage. He does get on base at a decent rate, however. And, when he does get on base, he causes MAJOR havoc for the opposing pitcher/catcher combo...both of them are mentally effected by Pods' theft, and this helps guys like Iguchi, Everett, and Konerko get on base better, since part of their concentration is on Pods. This is not a knock on the three other batters mentioned, it is just a testament to what Pods has brought to this team that we didn't have before (Ray Durham never could do this for us).

No doubt that Pods is one of the most important ingredients to this team's success. But I don't think he is underrated. Most everyone understands what he brings, especially when he gets on.

Uribe, without a doubt. Our league leading ERA owes a lot to his range and his arm. Plus, he adds energy. Once he figures out he's not Mark McGwire and shortens his swing, he'll be a .280 hitter, too.

Jermaine Dye. Among all major-league RFers, he's third or fourth in HRs. When he's hitting, we are a strong offensive team.

Agreed. Many thought his production had nowhere to go but down and he was injury prone. Hmm...upon his signing, I seem to remember some of that discussion on a particular message board...can't remember which one... :redneck

Uribe -- one of the best defensive players in all of baseball and a surprisingly good situational hitter.

The rest of the baseball world? Iguchi
