When I was a kid it was Chet Lemon, now it's Pudge. There's really only one Pudge.

CLR...that is just wrong in some many ways :(:

Singleton will be my favorite player when he is with the Rangers or whereever he winds up....good guy who has a job, but his play will only help the Sox once he is out of town

For all-time I'm going with Frank Thomas....I'm only 20 so my options are pretty much limited

Just wondering here...but how much do we have to add to :slowswing to get Gabe Kapler? He isn't Giles or Erstad, but he would definately fill the percieved void in CF..worth a shot

:pudge

When I was playing ball as a kid, I wanted to be a catcher because of Pudge. The first White Sox HR I can remember as a child hit at Old Comiskey Park was cranked out by Pudge. Most of my childhood White Sox memories have Pudge in them somewhere. Fisk was and still is..... "The Man."

Robin Ventura.... unfortunately, he's a Yankmee... ( :whiner: ) The only good that can come from this is maybe he can win the ring he deserves.... maybe that will be like a semi-championship for me.....
















No, not at all... It's still the Yankmees...... Damn...

Hey I'll be happy for Robin when he wins a ring with the Yanks.....at least it isn't with a mortal enemy......I would hate to see Chelios win a cup with the Red Wings, but c'est la vie....losing Robin turned out to be good business

Even though his career with the Sox was short Bo Jackson has to be the guy for me. Bo knows

I used to love that commercial ends with Bo Diddley playing the guitar saying Bo don't know Diddley

Royce has got to be the guy. All those clutch, memorable years he had with the Sox. Man, Clayton was the MAN. I just hope when he's inducted into the HOF, he goes in as a White Sox.

:harold

I gotta go with Harold (as unpopular as he is on this board lately). At the first sox game I even went to when i was 5, he came up with two guys in scoring position and 2 outs, and my dad said something like "there's not much you can count on with the sox these days, but you can always count on Harold driving in men in scoring position" and sure enough he ripped a double off the wall on the next pitch to give the sox the lead (of course, being the sox of the late 80's that they were, they blew it later in the game when steve lyons caught a pop up in the shallow outfield, and held the ball as a runner on third (luis polonia maybe? can't remember) tagged up.) anyways, ever since that at bat harold had, he was my hero.

It's a toss up between Ron Kittle or "Blackjack" McDowell for me. I loved "Kitty" when I was little because of his mammoth roof shot homers out of old Comiskey, but as I grew up I appreciated the fine art of pitching and never tired of watching Blackjack throw that mean splitter he had. One of the best pitched games I ever saw was between Jack McDowell and Randy Johnson. The Sox edged the M's 1-0 in a pitcher's duel all the way. Both guys pitched complete games too. I can't remember if that game was from '92 or '93 though. It's too bad that injuries cut short a great career for Jack.

This is actually a tough question to answer,there are a lot of memories of watching Ron Kittle and Greg Luzinski bounce balls off the roof in BP,and the triple threat of Macdowell,Fernandez,and Alverez,Frank golfballing low pitches into the seats,Pudge tossing out would be's at second,the list goes on.But when all is said and done there is no replacement for Harold Baines taking a swing in his prime,what a sight that was.
