I don't know how he is in the field, but I don't think he'd be any worse than Owens.
Maybe we should, since he is so good they listed him twice (at 70 and 91).
"I have the ultimate respect for White Sox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Red Sox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)
