The Chicago White Sox have been one of the most storied franchises in Major League Baseball over the course of their century-long life.

With three World Series titles, six American League pennants, and a whole lot of star power both at the plate and on the mound, there's no doubt that this club is one of the greatest franchises in the sport's history.

Like all other teams, there have been a ton of moving parts in this organization, with many players coming in and out on a seemingly daily basis. Many trades have come together over the years but it was until more recently that the White Sox began to lose trades more than they won.

I think it's rather obvious which deal is going to take the top spot in this ranking, but what about the other 14 slots? Unfortunately, most of these deals have been made under Hahn's rule, with only a small group of them coming from the pre-Hahn days.
