    "(Shoeless Joe Jackson's fall from grace is one of the real tragedies of baseball. I always thought he was more sinned against than sinning." -- Connie Mack

    "I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

    As I hate to say it as a Sox fan, but the Cubs foursome is better. You can look at it in two ways - which group had better careers or which four would you rather have on your team.

    In my own rankings, Aparicio and Fox are in my Hall of Fame, but at the low end. I haven't decided on Pierce and Minoso yet. As to the four Cubs, I have all four ranked above Aparacio and Fox.

    If I had a ball club, I'd take the Cubs. While the Sox would have a great defense, they wouldn't score enough runs to compete with the Cubs team if those were the four best players on each team.
