And then there's their manager. He's really obnoxious. While Sox supporters probably find him to be a wacky, lovable oaf or some such thing, but I'm just not seeing it. In the end, I do give them credit for beating an even more unlikable Houston team in the World Series, but they are in my bottom ten for reason. I think.
Favorite current White Sox player: Mark Buehrle. He likes the Cardinals and he's from just outside St. Louis. What can I say?
Least favorite current White Sox player: A.J. Pierzynski. This shouldn't be a big surprise. I could see Pierzynski and Curt Schilling one day having their own talk show that nobody in their right minds should ever listen to.
Favorite White Sox player of all-time: Frank Thomas. I'm not Frank Thomas Fan Number One, exactly, but he was fun to watch and an absolute monster of a human baseball player from day one.
Least favorite White Sox player of all-time: Sammy Sosa. Speaking of monsters, I was just watching the 2002 Home Run Derby on MLB Network the other day. Sosa looked absolutely crazy, like he was injected with some sort of Hulk serum. I know Sammy was only on the White Sox for a few years, but I can't really think of anyone else that bugs me more at the moment.
The Chicago White Sox check in at #21 in my reverse-ranking of favorite teams as of the moment I picked them on October 4th, 2010. All of these cards are very much up for trade, so please contact me if you're interested.
