March 23, 1989 - The Sox trade Kenny Williams (now the club’s G.M.) to Detroit for pitcher Eric King. Williams never achieved any measure of consistency in the big leagues. King at least had a spectacular 1990 campaign going 12 - 4 with a sub three ERA for the "Doin’ The Little Things" White Sox who’d shock baseball by compiling 94 wins.

Looking back, that team in 1990 (94-68, 2nd place AL West) may have been one of the most significant. Does anyone here think that this White Sox team had a profound influence in turning the organization around? Since that year, there have been only a few losing seasons (but not by much), three division titles (easily could have been four if not for the strike), and a World Series.

:cool:

:cool:I don't think we've finished below 3rd place since then. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong on that.

A correction to my original post. In 1990 Eric King's ERA was 3.25, not a sub-three ERA as I posted.
