MLB: Chicago White Sox at Detroit Tigers Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The slow start to baseball’s Hot Stove season has brought to the fore even relatively-minor rumors, though it does give one an extra opportunity to appreciate Jose Abreu’s value and contributions to the Chicago White Sox. Number me one of many who hopes to see Jose Abreu stay on the South Side, barring some ridonkulous overpay: looking back at some of Abreu’s counting stats from the 2017 season, he is one of just 26 instances in club history where a player has logged at least 180 hits and 100 RBIs in a single season.

Today’s challenge? Name all instances in White Sox history where a player has accomplished this feat. Good luck!
