Our longest gap? Twins in 1986 - the legendary Pete Filson for Kurt Walker trade...

The second-longest stretch is Detroit in 1989, when the Sox traded away somebody named Ken Williams. :D:

March 20, 2006: The Chicago White Sox (http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/CHW/2006.shtml) traded Joe Borchard (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/b/borchjo01.shtml) to the Seattle Mariners (http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/SEA/2006.shtml) for Matt Thornton (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/t/thornma01.shtml).

Whew; what a steal.

Borchard is currently hitting .229 for the Bridgeport Bluefish in the independent Atlantic League. 27 strikeouts in 96 at-bats. Some things never change, I guess.

Poking around a bit, I see that another Atlantic League team, the Camden Riversharks, features two former Sox in Toby Hall and Danny Richar.

Without looking at the site, I'm going to guess the last trade with the Blue Jays was Wells for Sirotka.

Given how atrocious Wells was that year (remember the Cubs bunting on him endlessly?), I actually believe that the Blue Jays got the better of that deal, insofar as the Sox are concerned. Wells' next productive season was with the Yankees, which did not help the Sox at all.

As a follow-up to my own post, it's amazing (and sad) how many Sox trades I look back at and make fun of.

Not surprised the Indians have been our most prolific trading partner (59 trades). They've been around as long as the White Sox.

I was wondering why the Orioles had even more, thinking they only came about in the 1950s. I forget they were the St. Louis Browns.
