This is from ESPN




1917: Sox replace first baseman Jacques Fournier with Chick Gandil.
Gandil was the lesser player and the Black Sox ringleader.
1959-1960: Bill Veeck trades prospects for veterans.
Off went Norm Cash, Johnny Callison, and others, and away went three or four pennants.
1981: Letting broadcaster Harry Caray get away.
Cubs win! Sox lose!
1985: Hiring broadcaster Hawk Harrelson as general manager.
In just one season, Harrelson managed to turn Carlton Fisk into a left fielder AND fire Tony La Russa.
1992: Trading Sammy Sosa to Cubs for George Bell.
Must anything else be said?

Add getting rid of Tony LaRussa to that mix.

Getting rid of Sosa was bad?
