Do what every Chicagoan loves to do, vote. (http://www.rankopedia.com/ZoneID=3/8790/Step1/3522.htm)

Don't like my choices, add your own.

Voting for Juice Cruz will not earn you brownie points.

If Shoeless Joes career weren't cut short by scandal he might have given Frank a run for his money on this one. Short of that, no one else is even close to Big Frank.

That is how I voted, you can vote for up to ten players.

Who is this Loius Apparicio (http://www.rankopedia.com/ZoneID=3/28762/EditCandidate/96720/ComingfromSt1/.htm) that you speak of? Never heard of him.

Big Frank is the obvious choice. While his fielding during his time at 1B was never amazing, it got the job done at a position where fielding is not as important as on the other side of the diamond. His extraordinary batting statistics make this an easy choice for me.

I agree with the "Big Frank but maybe Shoeless Joe if he played longer" argument.

Put me down for Oswaldo as well.

Quite honestly, if you look at the selections we have to pick from, the list is actually pretty weak. I'm not being a defeatist or anything, just a realist. The Chicago White Sox aren't exactly an expansion team. They have been around for over 100 years and when you take a look at the list, you don't see a lot of household names jump off the screen. Take any other teams, including the Cubs and you see a that their past rosters have names like, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, George Brett, Willie Mays, Stan Musial, Nolan Ryan, etc,etc. In order for the Sox to have any well known names on the list, you have to include current players like Thomas and Dye.

My vote is for Carlton Fisk, a player who helped bolster the franchise, but went into the hall wearing a different cap. I love this team and always will but when you take a look at the great players we've had, we are bringing up the rear. Let's hope that in the next 100 years, we can catch up.
