2007 Upper Deck #613 - David Aardsma
On this day in 2008, the White Sox sent David Aardsma to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for minor league players Willy Mota and Miguel Socolovich.
Radio broadcaster Ed Farmer favorite player (mostly because he can say Aardsma's last name like a pirate) came to the club via a trade with the Chicago Cubs, which saw pitcher Neal Cotts move to the North Side team. David had a fantastic April for the South Side in 2007, but when May hit, so did everybody else. Aardsma's number slid in May and by June 2nd, he was sent to the minors. David continued to struggle when recalled later in the month. His last game for the White Sox was July 4, 2007, against the Orioles, where he gave up three runs and made a throwing error.
