POLL: No Contest! Idiots Of '04 Smite '07 Team

Respondents to our latest FenwayNation Poll left no doubt who they think is the superior Boston championship team. By a whopping 4-1 margin, readers said the 2004 band of "Idiots" would defeat the 2007 World Series champs in a seven-game match-up. As the table shows, more than four in five readers chose the likes of Pedro, Millar, Mueller, and Foulke to the likes of Pedroia, Crisp, Drew, and Papelbon. Of course, there were smatterings of players on both teams—like Schilling, Youkilis, Ortiz and Manny—but there were definite differences in style between the two squads. Both teams showed a resilient streak—in '04 overcoming a 3-0 ALCS deficit and in '07 coming back from a 3-1 ALCS hole. You can still vote in the poll HERE.
