With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs.

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history.

Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
