Eh, you still have a lot of good years ahead of you. Maybe the 3rd pick in the 2014 draft will go on to have a HOF career. Or Chris Sale assuming he doesn't suffer his inevitable arm blow-out.

I saw his first at bat in Milwaukee. It's great to see him elected.

What a great day! It's a great day for Frank, and a great day for the White Sox and all their fans.

I was really worried that some of the writers were going to hold the whole DH thing against Frank. Fortunately, common sense prevailed. Frank not only had the counting numbers in his favor, he also had a period of dominance during the 1990s that was just too much to ignore.

A great hitter will take his rightful place in Cooperstown in July.

Congrats Frank. He was one of the most dominant hitters (without the juice) of his time and one of the best players in franchise history. Looking forward to hearing his speech.

In the words of Daniel Bryan and Hawk Harrelson - "YES! YES! YES!"

Best Sox player I have seen since becoming a fan at age 6. That is a no-brainer statement, I realize.

Congratulations and well deserved Big Hurt! Thank you for the privilege of observing your raw talent and for accomplishing your achievements while staying clean during the steroids era.
