For those of you who read my blog yesterday, I made my selections for whitesox.com’s All-Time 9. It’s a poll created for all of us to name our personal Sox starting lineup based on single-season hitting stats.
To help us in the process the Sox site offers a list of candidates for each position. As I mentioned yesterday, I was confused about the omission at first base of Dick Allen’s 1972 season and the fact that Hall of Fame second baseman Eddie Collins was listed as a first baseman. Well, I woke up this morning to find that the mystery has been solved. Allen is now on the ballot and Collins is in his rightful place at second.
With this monumental issue solved, we now can enjoy the day without a cloud of confusion hanging over our heads :-).
