I gave the Big Hurt my vote. And, he's one of the big reasons I'm a Sox fan.

Shoeless Joe but he's not on the ballot
Gotta go with Frank. He's the best Sox player I've seen in my lifetime.

Frank Thomas. If it was just a fan favorite poll, I'd go with Baines, but as a player I think Frank is the best player in Sox history.

Rob Mackowiak, because he is from my hometown. :tongue:

Big Frank. Although Carlton Fisk is my personal favorite, I can't deny (nor would I want to) the Big Hurt.

The Big Hurt.
I have always been partial to Harold Baines, but I have to go with Frank Thomas.
And I write this believing Joe Jackson was a better hitter.

Frank Thomas hands down. While Harold and Minnie and others were fantastic players and deserve to be on the ballot, no one defined the white sox like Frank Thomas. The way he dominated the early 90s, if he could have stayed healthy, we may be talking about him breaking Ruths record, and if it wasnt for steroids, we probably would be calling him a 3-5 time MVP. I am very partial to Frank, being only 21, I didnt get the priviledge of seeing Harold in his prime (atleast what I remember) but I grew up watching Frank. My dad used to let me stay up late after my mom had went to bed, and I would sleep on the couch and he would wake me up when Frank batted. Frank was not only the white sox for so many years, but Frank was baseball.
