I was born in ‘89, so I didn’t really have the pleasure of getting to grow up with with guys like Hoyt, Alvarez, McDowell, Ozzie, etc. but the 5 listed were by far the most emotionally invested players I ever got the pleasure to see in-person.

I'm not sure I've got a clear 5th, but it sure seems like I enjoy watching dominant pitching performances.

Went by Lamarr so the cops and drug dealers were too confused to catch him.  😁

I was thinking exactly this.  With that in mind...

1. Ron Kittle

2. Robin Ventura

3. Ozzie Guillen

4. Jeff Bajenaru

5. Brandon McCarthy

Can't believe I forgot Buehrle.  Slot him at #3 and move everyone else down.  My wild card from today is Yolmer.

The serious answer:

1 -- Louie Aparacio

2 -- Joel Horlen

3 -- Dick Allen

4 -- Mark Buehrle

5 -- (Tie) Konerko / Fisk / Thomas / Thome

 

And the eclectic list of personal favorites through the decades (roughly chronological, but in no particular order of preference):

Ken Berry; Bruce Howard; Gary Peters; Jerry Nyman; Buddy Bradford; Cy Acosta (!); Terry Forster; Rich Gossage; Pat Kelly; Ken Henderson; Jim Kaat; Oscar Gamble; Ken Kravec; Nyls Nyman; Britt Burns; AJ; Sweaty Freddy; Quintana; Sale. (And coming soon to a ballpark near you -- Eloy; Cease; Dunning; Madrigal)

OMG ... How could I have forgotten Jim Thome and the White Sox portion of his amazing career?

1. Hurt

2. Sale

3. Buehrle

4. Walnuts

5. Pierzynski. 

AJ has a permanent place on this list for goating Barrett into that fight.

God this is tough...

1) A.J. - Total asshole (nothing wrong with this.  i'm an asshole).  But he was our asshole.  Loved his fire and became a fan for life when he punked that loser Michael Barrett .  He represents the attitude I want to see in a White Sox player.  Get under the skin of the other team, make them get emotional and screw up, play your ass off, and fire up the fan base.  

2) Frank.  Guy was my childhood idol and I wanted to be him when I grew up.  Such a good person and just an absolute terror at the plate.  Legitimately must have been terrifying for pitchers to see him walk up to the plate.

3) Buehrle - Best White Sox pitcher in my lifetime.  I honestly feel that he could still be a successful pitcher today, and could have pitched till he was 45

4) Paulie - I mean he's basically Frank lite.  Another great guy, who was so consistent for the Sox as a leader and middle of the order presence.  I think he was extremely underrated nationally during his time with the Sox

5) Jim Thome - How can you not like a guy who is country strong, eats a ton of hot dogs, and blasts 500ft homers?

What a tough list.

The obvious 3 for me are

1) PK14

2) Big Frank

3) Mark Buehrle

Then it gets tough. There are tons of players that I've enjoyed over the years, these two I just loved to watch.

4) Joe Crede

5) Aaron Rowand
