Roger Erickson from the Chronology
May 12, 1982 - In their 2nd major trade in as many days the Twins deal C Butch Wynegar and P Roger Erickson to the Yankees for IF Larry Milbourne minor leaguers John Pacella and Pete Filson and cash. The Twins' frugal owner Calvin Griffith is roundly criticized for the deals in which he appears to be unloading high-salaried veterans at the expense of a winning ball club.
Jul 18, 1980 - For the second time in 2 weeks a player breaks up a scoreless game in the 10th with a game-ending homer. It is Boston's Dave Stapleton's turn today as he homers off Minnesota's Roger Erickson to give starter Mike Torrez the win.
