. 1B. Chicago White Sox. Justin Morneau . 3. player. 128

Of all of the players on this list, Justin Morneau was probably the weirdest to see in a Chicago White Sox uniform. He was an elite player on the hated Minnesota Twins for a long time. He had so many great years there and tormented the Chicago White Sox for a long time. He played a whopping 11 seasons with Minnesota before being shipped off to play for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He then went to the Colorado Rockies for two years before finishing his awesome career with the White Sox in 2016.

Morneau had an incredible career that saw him have so many individual accolades. He won an MVP, a batting title, two Silver Sluggers, and was a four-time all-star before he made his way to the south side of Chicago. Minnesota fans were largely disgusted by seeing one of the great pillars in their franchise’s history play for the hated White Sox.

They didn’t really have much to worry about in Minnesota in 2016, however. The White Sox had an amazing start to the season in 2016 but fell off quickly. Morneau wasn’t his old self. In 58 games of a limited role for the White Sox, Morneau had six home runs and 25 RBIs. He slashed .261/.303/.429. Those are okay numbers but it was another example of a time the White Sox brought in old players who used to be good.
