Recap:

The easiest players to pick were the pitching staff, Jackson, Appling, and Thomas.

The hardest desicion was at second base. Collins or Fox?

The White Sox have a good pitching staff, definitely in the top 10.

They have a good infield, which is anchored by their middle infielders.

They have a good power hitter in Frank Thomas, and they definitely have a great hitter in Joe Jackson.

They also have a strong outfield, but it wouldn't stand up against the Yankees, Phillies, or Red Sox. They are probably in the top ten.

All in all, the all-time White Sox team is average compared to the others.
