Chicago White Sox: Five players you forgot played for them
Kevin Youkilis was a great player during his career for a very long time. He was one of the unsung heroes during the first half of the Boston Red Sox run of dominance since the turn of the century. He played with them for parts of 9 seasons from 2004 to 2012. The Red Sox were pretty bad, however, in 2012 so they traded him to the White Sox.
Youkilis is a three-time all-star, a gold glove winner, and two-time World Series Champion. He brought all of that experience to a 2012 White Sox team that was pretty good. They were the very last White Sox team to finish a season over .500. They sort of fell off in September that year which forced them out of the playoffs but they were an okay team with Youkilis there.
The White Sox having Youkilis is something that not a lot of people remember. He was a great player for the Red Sox that doesn’t get the credit that Manny Ramirez or David Ortiz get but he was still an important player. The White Sox didn’t have him in his prime but they did have someone who was able to be an okay corner infielder. All of these players on this list were really good in their MLB careers but you might have forgotten they played for some time on the south side.
