November 10, 1998 - Perhaps the finest deal ever made by then Sox G.M. Ron Schueler. On this date the Sox gave up promising center fielder Mike Cameron to the Reds for infielder Paul Konerko. Konerko would eventually blossom into a consistent power hitting first baseman. Hed be named the 2005 A.L.C.S. MVP and help lead the Sox to the World Series title.

I'm trying to find some more details about this trade. Was it just Paulie for Mike? No player(s) to be named later? Always curious to see what minor leaguers get traded and how they turn out.

Of course it was a great trade for the Sox, but I'll never forget Mike's revenge - hitting four HR's in one game at the Cell and just missing a fifth. :o:

You can't forget it...every ass-clown sports "journalist" in this city brings it up every time Cameron passes through. :angry:

There's some good articles here about that trade. And by good I mean articles that call the trade a flop.

That's not so much a testament to Cameron's power as it is a testament to Parque's suckiness. I believe he gave up the first two. Can't remember if Sean Lowe was in there for #3.

EDIT- According to retrosheet, Rauch gave up #1, and Parque gave up #2, 3 and 4.
