Greatest White Sox Team of All-Time-- Right Field, Part 5: Baines and Dye

From the August 14, 2016, Chicago Tribune.

HAROLD BAINES--  A 22-year big leaguer, Baines played 14 seasons with the White Sox and was twice reacquired by the team after being traded in 1989.

A four-time All-Star with the Sox, Baines hit 20 or more home runs seven times.  His 221 home runs in a Sox uniform are third-most in franchise history.

He is my all-time favorite White Sox player, so I know who I am going to pick for favorite right fielder.

JERMAINE DYE--  The MVP of the 2005 World Series, Dye had seven hits -- including a home run -- in the four-game sweep of the Astros.

In his five seasons with the Sox, Dye never hit fewer than 27 home runs.  In 2006, he earned an AL All-Star slot, batting .315 with 44 home runs and 120 RBIs.  His 165 homers with the Sox rank seventh in team history.
