No doubt about it, Aparicio was one of the greatest. That being said the trade that brought us Hansen, Ward, Wilhelm and Nicholson for Aparicio and Al Smith after the 62 season was a pretty good trade and helped us average almost 96 wins a year for the 3 years following the trade. We had a down year in 66 with only 83 wins but came back and almost won the AL pennant with 89 wins in 67.
