Week 2 Hitters Power Poll: The King Stay The King

Little known fact: Paulie's bats are filled with honey
So we're 16 games into the season and it's time for our second edition of this year's Hitters Power Poll. And, for the most part, it looks a lot like last weeks.

The top three players remain the same, with Paul Konerko, A.J. Pierzynski, and Alejandro De Aza leading the way, but there is some movement beneath them.

Our biggest climber this week? Well, as far as points are concerned, it's Adam Dunn, who picked up 46 points over the last seven days. In spots, it's Gordon Beckham who jumped up from dead last to eighth place.
1Paul Konerko 76 1 32
2A.J. Pierzynski 70 2 31
3Alejandro De Aza  67 3 31
4Adam Dunn 58 6 46
5Alex Rios 41 5 27
6Alexei Ramirez 25 714
7Brent Morel 20 811
8Gordon Beckham15 13 16
9Dayan Viciedo 13 4 -3
10Brent Lillibridge 10 10 7
11Tyler Flowers 8 8 1
12Kosuke Fukudome  5 12 5
13Eduardo Escobar 1 11 -1

Of course, there's a flip side to those who climb, and it's those who fall. Dayan Viciedo was one of two Sox players to lose points last week and tumbled all the way from fourth to ninth because of it.

Eduardo Escobar was the other to lose points, but he didn't exactly get a lot of playing time.

Feel free to vent about how much any player sucks, but no hate speech directed at anybody, be it a player or a fellow commenter.
