Paul Konerko hands down - Kept the offense alive after Thomas went down.

I personally agree with this. Podsednik has been the most important factor to our winning this year, as well as our pitching. To me it's between and Pods and Garland, with the break out year.

Lately, to the shagrin of the FOGIDPK, I'd say it is Konerko.

Season-wise, I'd say it would be Podsednik, as he's been the catalyst of Ozzieball.

Timo Perez..... Just kidding. It's Iguchi

PK hands down

Pierzynski. His game-calling has made our entire pitching staff better.

Its either Garland or Podsednik. I'll have to go with Pods saying that we sucked without him in the lineup.

I can't think of one. If hard pressed, I'd say Garland because his performance was more or less unexpected, and he's been the most consistent arm on the squad.

Pierzynski & Podsednik

Scott Podsednik hands down. But making a very nice and not too early push
for mention, is Paul Konerko. Jon Garland gets the nod for his excellent pitching. With todays loss, im not sure he will make 20 wins, I wanted
him to get there ........

I'm not sure Paul Konerko could be considered the team's MVP. Most valuable player is the guy that makes the team win. Take him out, and you don't have the same winning team.

Well, when Konerko was MIA in April and May, the Sox rolled to the best record in the majors. Then, when he got hotter than a pistol last month, the Sox had their first losing record for a bigger stretch. Obviously Konerko's hitting wasn't making the Sox lose, but the correlation still has MVP merit.

It has to be Iguchi or Podsednik. I'd go with Tadahito.

The Sox have been a .500 team since Podsednik got hurt. That is a pretty good argument in his favor. However, he has been a non-factor since the beginning of July. Without Iguchi I am not sure they would even reach .500. And Iguchi gets credit for helping Podsednik have the kind of impact he had. On balance, Pods for the first half, Iguchi overall.
