Everyone's done something notable during this year's playoffs here on the right side of town. Who will be the offensive player of the World Series for us?

Joe Crede

I'm thinking Tadahito will have a HUGE series for us!

I gotta go with Joe Clutch. It's gotta be the hair! :cool:

Funny about hair.
When Johnson went to the yankoffs & had to cut his hair, he wasn't nearly as good as before.

I picked Scotty because he sets the table. As someone showed before, he has good numbers historically against the Astros' pitchers. Their pitcher have slow deliveries for the most past, so he should be able to swipe a few bags. If he can get on base 2-3 times a game, he will control the whole series. In all the excitement over Paulie's homers and Crede's heroics, we missed out on what Scotty did in Anaheim. He had an unbelievable series.

Also, he has opposite field power. He takes the ball to left often, and I have seen at least 10 of his balls die on the LF warning track. If he does that in MMP, he could have a couple of homers.

I've picked Joe, because he's been CLUTCH this post-season.

That having been said, this team is truly a team and I would not be surprised if someone unexpected is the series hero.

I think the Series will establish Konerko as a premier slugger. I have a gut feeling that he will put on quite a show.

I almost never take part in polls, but I was looking at the results of one a couple of days ago on one of the sports sites, I don't remember which one. One of the questions was "Which player would the Astros most like to face in a game situation?" In other words who would be the most likely to fail in the clutch. The winner with about 30% of the vote was Juan Uribe. I don't really believe in premonitions, but I just have a feeling that Uribe is going to prove them wrong and come up really big in at least one game this series.

I'm going way out on a limb with this one:

Aaron Rowand

All the other names make total sense, but AR is due...really due for a big series.
