My Top 10 White Sox Moments of the Decade

White Sox communications guru Scott Reifert has asked Sox fans, through Twitter, to weigh in on their Top 10 moments of the decade. Here are my my picks. I really had no other choice but to list seven of the 10 from the 2005 postseason.

10Dewayne Wise‘s spectacular catch to save Mark Buehrle‘s perfect game in July of

  9.  Buehrle’s perfect game.

  8Jim Thome‘s home run and John Danks‘ gem against the Twins in Game 163
       to help the Sox clinch the 2008 A.L. Central crown.

  7El Duque Hernandez retired the side with the bases loaded and no outs in the
       sixth and pitched three scoreless innings in all in the deciding game of the ’05
       American League Division Series.            

  6.   Joe Crede’s two-out ninth inning double to left field in Game 2 of the ’05 American
        League Championship Series that scored Pablo Ozuna to give the Sox a 2-1
        victory to tie the Series at one. It capped off a miracle inning that started with
        A.J. Pierzynski‘s now-legendary sprint to first base on a dropped third

  5.   Paul Konerko‘s thrilling grand slam in Game 2 of the ’05 Series to put the Sox
        ahead  6-4.

  4.   Scott Podsednik‘s unimaginable game-winning homer off of Brad Lidge in the
        ninth inning of Game 2  to put the Sox up 2-0 in the ’05 Series.

  3.   Geoff Blum‘s line drive homer in the 14th inning of the longest Series game ever
        played broke a 5-5 tie. The Sox scored another and took a commanding 3-0 game
        lead in the ’05 Series.

  2.   Jermaine Dye, the eventual ’05 Series MVP, singled up the middle to score Willie
        Harris with the lone run in Game 4 of the Fall Classic.

  1.   Orlando Palmiero swings…past JenksUribe has it…throws to Konerko…
        Out, Out, the White Sox win the World Series!!

        What do you think? How do your lists compare?

    I root for the other Sox but that truly was a great moment when the ChiSox won for the first time since 1919. I love Ozzie Guillen so I was cheering along with you.
    Congrats on being the featured blog.


    The walk off home run by Joe Crede in late September 2005 vs the Indians that kept distance between the Sox and the Indians when it seemed like the Indians won EVERY day in September was the biggest home run (regular season) in Sox history.
