Picture of the day: Eddie Cicotte

After Shoeless Joe Jackson, the best player involved in the Black Sox scandal was Eddie Cicotte, an ace pitcher who was as crooked as he was successful. His career 2.38 ERA is 24th best in history and it’s likely he would have ended up in the HoF if not for his role amongst the Black Sox.
