I've been waiting since 1959 to see the Sox move into the World Series - since the days of Al Smith, Louis Aparicio, Nellie Fox, Sherman Lollar, Jim Landis, , Early Wynn, Billy Pierce and Ted Kluzewski. Red Sox just tied up the 3rd game in the series with back to back home runs - but I'm counting on the Chisox. :) Of course, if they win the division, they'll probably still have to get by the Yankees, no easy task. My favorite ball player of all time didn't play that year for the Sox, but if he had, perhaps they would have won the World Series - yep, we're talking about the one and only Minnie Minoso (Saturnino Orestes Armas Minoso Arrieta - how's that for a name?). Turn here for a look at Minnie today.
