    It is believed that some of the White Sox players intentionally played bad during the 1919 World Series in exchange for money.
    Ted Williams broke his elbow running into the outfield wall in the first inning of the 1950 All Star Game.

    Two words: Michael Jordan.
    Their new ball park, U.S. Cellular Field, is considered the worst of all the new ball parks.

Why they might not be annoying:
