After a week long hiatus the Hitters Poll is back. Sorry I didn't do the poll last week but I was in Florida and I was fully intending to do both of them on Monday night in my hotel room but then a trip to Marlins Park and a few hours at the hotel bar later there was no Hitters Poll.
That's just the way things work sometimes.
Here's the poll, but keep in mind that the points earned are for the last two weeks. As anybody who has seen this team lately surely knows, the offense did not play that well this week.
|3||Alejandro De Aza||229||2||32|
Now there aren't many changes in the poll this week. Yes, Gordon Beckham passed Dayan Viciedo, but that was because Viciedo didn't get a lot of playing time with the Sox playing in National League parks last week.
The only other change is Orlando Hudson passing Brent Morel, and I don't think I need to explain how that happened.
What I will say is that for a while over the last two weeks, Adam Dunn had retaken the lead from Paul Konerko. But then Adam went on a strikeout binge and allowed Paulie to pass him up once again.
Last week's poll can be found here.
