Subtly underscoring what little the fans have to say in the matter, MLB.COM is holding a non-binding poll on who they think should be elected to the HOF in 2004: http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/events/hof/y2004/ballot.jsp

After scanning the list, I noticed:
- quite a few Sox "killers" (i.e. Jack Morris, Dave Stieb)
- way too many ex-Cubs (too many to mention)
- a few ex-Sox that became famous everywhere else, but not on the South Side

Here's are the 2004 HOF candidates:
Bert Blyleven
Joe Carter
Dave Concepcion
Danny Darwin
Andre Dawson
Doug Drabek
Dennis Eckersley
Jim Eisenreich
Cecil Fielder
Steve Garvey
Rich Gossage
Keith Hernandez
Tommy John
Jimmy Key
Dennis Martinez
Don Mattingly
Kevin Mitchell
Paul Molitor
Jack Morris
Dale Murphy
Randy Myers
Dave Parker
Terry Pendleton
Jim Rice
Juan Samuel
Ryne Sandberg
Lee Smith
Dave Stieb
Bruce Sutter
Bob Tewksbury
Alan Trammell
Fernando Valenzuela

Who do you think should make it? What do you think of the choices? How did some of these guys even make the list? (Bob Tewksbury?)

The floor is now open...

I dropped it here because it isn't 100% White Sox related, but if the benevolent diety moderators wish to move, please do.

Blyleven, Molitor, Gossage, Eckersley, Sandberg, Sutter.

In that order of importance.

I think Dave Steib actually may have killed the Sox more when he was a member of the Sox.

I vote Tommy John...

He must be a pretty important man to have a surgery named after him.
heh heh

I don't suppose we should ask what you think of Lou Gehrig...

I agree with Molitor, Gossage and Sandberg.

I'm going to re-vise the list I made from a couple of weeks back. Here's the 'definitely' group: Blyleven, Gossage, Molitor, Sandberg, Trammell, Lou Whitaker.

I'm on the fence with these guys: Eckersley, Sutter, Lee Smith, Tommy John.
