December 23, 1990 - Sox fans got an early Christmas gift as new GM Ron Schueler made one of his first and best deals. Schueler sent outfielder Ivan Calderon and pitcher Barry Jones to Montreal for All Star left fielder and stolen base threat Tim "Rock" Raines and pitcher Jeff Carter.
Raines would provide speed at the top of the order. He stole 143 bases in his five years with the Sox and he hit .444 in the 1993 ALCS against Toronto. He's also currently in consideration for the Baseball Hall of Fame.
