#27 - Greg Hibbard

Greg Hibbard's ERA was always high. It had something to do with giving up a lot of home runs. He found a way to win though and that's why his name is here.

Greg pitched on the White Sox from 1989 until 1992. He just missed the glory years of the mid 90's Sox teams. I fact, he viewed the White Sox making the playoffs in 1993 from the North Side of Chicago, where he led the Cubs in wins.

He wasn't overpowering, but he had guts. The announcers used to call him the "Little Bulldog". Everyone always seemed to be pulling for him to work out of a jam and he usually came through.

He is the best player at number 27, so far. If Josh Fields sticks with the Sox and progresses, he'll probably take this spot from Greg. A word of warning to Josh, the Little Bulldog doesn't give up without a fight.

I always had a soft spot for GH.
