Ordonez spent his first eight seasons with the White Sox and his final seven seasons with the Tigers, hitting .309 with 294 homers, 2,156 hits, and an .871 OPS to rank among the best right-handed hitters of the past 20 years.
I was mad they let him walk but they won the WS without him the next year so no great loss after all. Dye turned into a much better clutch hitter for us than Magglio was.
