Yeah I looked it up and you're right. Could have sworn it was before '57 because I remember the '57 Senators and my recollection is that he was with Boston by then, but I suppose my recollection failed me.   

But anyway, it seems that we got Albie Pearson in that trade. Not to say that that made up for it, but he was rookie of the year in '58.

Yes...I looked it up and saw little Albie, but Zauchin was supposed to be the big guy in that trade...power-hitting first-baseman to make us forget Mickey Vernon, two time AL batting champ. Ugh!
