January 12, 2000 - It took eight years but Sox G.M. Ron Schueler makes amends for his Steve Sax deal by shipping disgruntled pitcher Jamie Navarro to Milwaukee as part of a four player deal. In exchange he gets long ball hitting shortstop Jose Valentin and pitcher Cal Eldred. Both would play a large part in the unexpected divisional championship in 2000.

Oh man did Eldred go crazy the first half of that year until an unfortunate injury. That was another miracle pickup much like Esteban Loaiza.

Don't forget Schueler also unloaded John Snyder in that trade. Him and his 6.68 ERA, he was actually WORSE than Navarro!
