Not WS, Hangar :wink:, the whole postseason. After watching these replays and digesting it, we should be able to arrive at a good consensus.

Konerko was very productive the whole postseason, but then again Crede always seemed to come up when we needed him.

Why do we have to have so many heroes?

Who would have thought that at the beginning of the season...Jose Contreras and Joe Crede would be two of the top contributors to our World Series run?

Crazy...

Anyways, I voted for Walnuts. He was huge.

Jermaine Dye is the man.

There are a slew of people that I could name for this honor. PK, Dye, JC, and heck...Don Cooper's entire pitching staff. However, JC always seemed to be around and making awesome plays. Therefore he gets my vote.

Why doesn't Geoff Blum get his own option?

While watching the game replays it's amazing to reflect on how many times Konerko "just missed it DJ" with swings even on most of his fly-ball outs. Wow, was he locked in and feeling no pressure.

Joe and the entire pitching staff.

Paulie: Leader in HR's and RBI's....most at key points in the game (ie. Game 3 ALDS, Games 3&4 ALCS, Game 2 of the WS)...played exceptional defense as well.

Close 2nd: Jose Contreras...set the tone in each series with a strong Game 1....

i voted crede, mainly cause i think he got snubbed in the alcs. although paulie did have a solid post season and banked on it with that new contract.... i just think crede's clutch performance in the alcs was more valuable.

crede and konerko's alcs stats (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/stats/sortable_player_stats.jsp?c_id=cws&section1=null&statSet1=null&sortByStat=H&statType=1&timeFrame=1&timeSubFrame=20&baseballScope=CHA&prevPage1=1&readBoxes=true&sitSplit=&venueID=&subScope=pos&teamPosCode=all&box1=XXXX150317cha5&box2=XXXX117244cha3&compare.x=30&compare.y=7)

i would argue that crede's stats are much better... (i.e. better average, slugging %, OBP)


but now looking at their post season stats (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/stats/sortable_player_stats.jsp?c_id=cws&section1=null&statSet1=null&sortByStat=AB&statType=1&timeFrame=1&timeSubFrame=22&baseballScope=CHA&prevPage1=1&readBoxes=true&sitSplit=&venueID=&subScope=pos&teamPosCode=all&box1=XXXX117244cha3&box4=XXXX150317cha5&compare.x=35&compare.y=7), i would have to vote konerko based on that. but i think crede came up in the clutch more often.



you know what, jessica is my mvp....

I'll say Crede. Konerko probably outdid him with the bat overall, but Crede wasn't far behind, had a lot of big hits and just lit it up with the leather all month long.

Crede is without a doubt the man of the playoffs. It seemed like he had more game tying hits or go ahead hits than anyone in the lineup. Not to mention the amount of runs he saved in Game 1 of the World Series by his glove alone.

I can see arguments for Crede with Defense plus RBIs, but man, PK's Slam was HUGE, and he basically put two games out of reach for the Angels...

AJ Pierzynski, easily.

Our staff was lights out during the postseason, guess who called all the pitches?

Coop? A.J. doesn't call many of the pitches. They're signaled to him from the bench.

It's close but, excluding pitchers, I'd rank them:
1. Crede (.949 OPS + clutch hits + defense)
2. Pierzynski (.912 OPS + 9 R + 2 SB + leadership)
3. Podsednik (.948 OPS + 9 R + 2 HR + 6 SB)
