Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Chicago White Sox.
The White Sox were an inaugural team of the American League, and while they have been the adversary of the Chicago Cubs of the National League, the Chi-Sox were a formidable team in their own right.
The White Sox won their first World Series in 1906, and their second in 1917, but they were cursed when they allegedly threw the 1919 World Series to Cincinnati in 1919. The White Sox straggled for decades and after decades of struggles they won the World Series again in 2005.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the American League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.
This list is updated up until the end of the 2019 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
2. Ed Walsh
3. Luke Appling
4. Ted Lyons
5. Red Faber
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.
Look for our more material coming soon!
As always we thank you for your support.
