December 3, 1970 - For the second and final time the White Sox trade Luis Aparicio. The future Hall of Fame shortstop is sent to the Red Sox for infielders Luis Alvarado and Mike Andrews. Those players helped the Sox in the early 70's but this is one Roland Hemond trade, that some have second guessed. In 1972 had the Sox had Aparicio to provide some stability to the infield, they may have copped the Western Division title. Lee ’Bee-Bee’ Richards and Rich Morales simply weren’t the answer at short that season.

Lip -- Where did you get this date? Retrosheet, Rich Lindberg's White Sox Encyclopedia and the Sox media guides I have from that era all have this trade taking place on Dec. 1. I like to keep my files as accurate as possible which really is the onyl reason I care.
