The Boston strangler through told me. -- there was I mean we're talking about a team that general doctors at one point in time doctor Malone at -- on it not Doc Rivers but. Doctor. As a hermit he knows I make shot after shot after shot. That's the guy jumps out is if Andrew Toney now lately. It's hard to really think of anybody in the last time they played the lakers. In the finals you wanna say Ron -- Yeah yeah yeah he went he went along and and and led them -- but two does that was good for the world peace at that time or do you still -- -- -- -- he was wolf -- world it will result world peace got themselves.

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread.

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. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
