Ken Griffey Jr. Was On The White Sox?!?

So...here's something that I'm a bit ashamed to admit:  earlier this year when Ken Griffey Jr. was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Tribune ran this piece you see above featuring Griffey and Tim Raines (who I don't think made the cut).

What I was startled by was the last line:  Chicago AL, 2008.  Meaning....he played on the South Side.  I had to go back into the Googles and flail about to try to jog my memory.  Then it clicked:  this was a prototypical Kenny Williams deal.  Griffey got hurt and didn't play a ton of games for the White Sox, but for me?  Once a White Sox.  Always a White Sox.  Just look at that sweet swing.
