#28 - Wilbur Wood

There is no question that number 28 has to go to Wilbur Wood. From 1967 until 1978, Wilbur pitched for the White Sox. He was a machine. If it weren't for a freak injury, he may still be pitching today.

He led the AL in appearances in 1968, 1969 and 1970. He went to the All-Star game in 1971, 1973 and 1974. He led the AL with 24 wins, not once but twice, in 1972 and 1973. He was even runner up for the AL Cy Young in 1972.

Joey Cora doesn't hold a candle to Wilbur Wood. Neither does Cory Snyder, or wall crasher Rodney McCray. There is only one player that deserves to be here, that is Wilbur Wood.
