I know there has been months of rhetoric about the impact of Johan Santana leaving the AL Central, but another story that seems to have gotten lost in the Clemens fiasco was the move of another legenday (in my opinion) Sox killer out of the division: Mike Sweeney left KC for Oakland.

My question is this: Who are you happier to see go? I know Johan beat us 5 times last year, and usually got the better of us 3-5 times a year for the past few years... but how many games did Sweeney steal from us in the past decade?

Johan, definitely. Makes the Twins "mortal" on the mound and gives the NL headaches....and if the Mets do better than the Yanks, that makes me smile.

Yeah but Mike Maroth is back in the division with the Royals...

If this were like the old gameshow "The Joker's Wild", may I go off the board for Andy Gonzalez for $50?

Truthfully, I'm happy Santana is gone. Enjoy NYC, Johan.

No question, Santana. That trade the Twins made with the Mets may have added four wins to the White Sox season.



:cool:

Is this really a question? No pitcher has owned us over the past 5 years like Santana has. There are plenty of hitters that have been thorns in our sides.

Have a great time in New York, Johan. Win 35 games and the Sox will beat you in Game 1 and 5 of the World Series.

Johan, and it's not even a question in my mind, on top of him being out of the division he switched leagues.

Even though we will see him less Sweeney can still haunt us, he now gets to combine his Sox killing prowess with Oakland's overall dominance of us. He will probably hit .500 with 6 dingers against us this year.....

5 years ago - there's no doubt the answer would be Sweeney. Today, there's no doubt it is Santana.

Santana....Sweeney is washed up.

Exactly.....AND Santana left our league entirely. We're still going to face Sweeney a few times if he's not on the DL.

And yet Sweeney leads this poll with 99.2% of the choices. I voted Santana.

Santana is the best pitcher in the game. This one's a no-brainer.

I think that Sweeney is one of the most under rated players in baseball, only if he could stay healthy for an entire season. But, I think that Johan is the best pitcher in baseball, and we will not even have to face him ever again, unless the WS or inter league play.

Sweeney is beyond his years now. He's in his mid 30s and even if he was healthy, he wouldn't be the Sweeney of old. I also find it pretty weird that the guy's never hit more than 29 homers in his career, that must really suck...

Absolutely Santana. Has anyone seen the Twins' winning precentage the last five years when Santana pitches and when he doesn't? Unless I'm mistaken, the Twins' winning percentage w/o Santana was under .500 and w/ Santana was around .700. So there you go.
