Week 16 Hitters Poll: Alex Rios Rules The World


Alex Rios rules the world and he also rules the hitters poll.

It hasn't mattered how well Adam Dunn or Paul Konerko have done, Rios just continues to match or exceed both of them, keeping the gap exactly where it's been at since the end of June.

Rios is the only Sox player who has reached 400 points this season, and unless he has a monster week that we just haven't seen from anybody this season, it's going to be two weeks before Dunn or Konerko breaks the 400 point mark.

As you can see, it was a pretty good offensive week. The Sox scored 39 runs in the seven games since our last rankings, and it shows in the point differentials.

Every regular not named AJ Pierzynski reached double digits, and all except for Gordon Beckham had at least 20 points.

Hell, things were so good this week that even Eduardo Escobar scored 7 points...and was immediately traded. Kenny's selling high!
