Back when Adkins was pitching for the Sox, I was frequently able to impress my wife by saying, "Hey, wanna see someone hit a home run?"

Jon rarely disappointed.

Cotts earned his ring in 2005, pitching in all four WS games, winning one. I don't know what the hell happened to him afterwards though.

Meh. I was more of a fan of Terry Leach's time with the White Sox.

Is Barry Jones available? Maybe we can find lightning in a bottle after his stellar year in 1990.
