Congrats Tim Raines!!!

Hall of Fame Class of 2017

You deserve every bit of this, Tim.  When I was a kid just starting to collect baseball cards, I would wish that you were on the White Sox. I always had a soft spot for the Expos. Maybe it was those powder blue uniforms. Maybe it was the exotic (to a little kid) locale of Montreal, where they weren't just Canadian, they were FRONCH-Canadian. Then one day, in the middle of my freshman year of high school, I got my wish.

You never disappointed me. You, along with a fresh young group (and a couple of old timers), took the AL West by storm. The White Sox became a force to be reckoned with. Then it all came undone with the strike. You may have had your first World Series with the White Sox in 1994, but we'll leave that for another timeline where the strike doesn't happen. Still you got two with the Yankees and finally one, as a coach, with the White Sox. So, a little late, but better than never.

Soak it up and enjoy the ride. You deserve every bit of this.
