Where does Vladimir Guerrero rank?

Who are the best players in two of the best lineups in baseball?

While the Yankees and Rangers don't have much in common when it comes to championship history, they do share some traits in terms of offense in the present. The Yankees led Major League Baseball in runs during the regular season, but the Rangers weren't far behind in fifth.

As the ALCS begins, how do you size up the players who make up those potent offenses? Does Derek Jeter's postseason experience trump Josh Hamilton's MVP-caliber regular season? Rank some of the key figures in the discussion below.
