On this day (26 May):
1912: A bad man gets traded. Chick Gandil, infamous ringleader of the 1919 Black Sox, is traded from Montreal (of the International League) to Washington. He went on to place 11th in the MVP voting that year, with an astounding 2 HRs and 19 steals (caught stealing 17 times).
1984: A million horrors are on their way for a generation of Red Sox fans, as the Sox trade Dennis Eckersley and Mike Brumley for......wait for it........Bill Buckner. (Lightning flashes, wolves howl)
1989: The Montreal Expos trade Gene Harris, Brian Holman and (WHOOPS) Randy Johnson for Mark Langston and PTBNL. Langston threw 176 (quite good) innings for Montreal, then departed as a free agent. RJ threw 1838 (mostly epic) innings for Seattle.
And now for a band I grew up on, one of the true greats...............
