SOX 2010 PLAYER POWER POLL [Start of the season]
A look at the Sox 25-man roster ranked by talent, makeup and value to the team
1. RHP Jake Peavy - A potential 20-game winner and 200-plus strikeout guy.

3. 2B Gordon Beckham - The future of the club, and the present No. 2 hitter in the lineup.

13. LF Juan Pierre
14. 3B Mark Teahen
15. RHP J.J. Putz
