Corrected entry: When W. is giving George Sr. a tour of Arlington Stadium in 1990, they comment in passing that it was a mistake to trade Sammy Sosa. By the end of the 1990 season, Sosa's career was relatively unremarkable: he was hitting a career .242, with just 23 home runs and 96 RBIs. It wasn't until 1998 with the Chicago Cubs that Sosa's stardom really took off.

Correction: They still saw it as a mistake. In '89 the Rangers used two young outfielders (Sosa and Juan Gonzalez), but Juan stayed in the minors for most of the '90 season and didn't perform as Sosa did. In '89 the White Sox finished 7th in the division and then in the '90 season finished 2nd, above the Rangers who finished 3rd.
