About play -- but what do you would agree. Just that I advocate sectors checkered. Yes maybe. Monopoly. Well. -- doesn't quite reach any of those levels does he -- your beat got a chance to witness today finally ended without -- guys have poker games -- invite me to. Invited this poker game and take all the money isn't income -- to a -- I'm sure I'm shore I did an article that our goal -- about it. Both were good night's idol lob though it's we are actually is -- discussing this this morning we are trying to figure out you know what we what we are gonna go with. And and we decided Hollywood doesn't that are. I mean some first -- cameras on a withdrawal OK there was no camera in the locker room for her speech. So we only half. Retaliation fiction out it and and by the way guys were in the room say that's pretty -- I mean you really became herb Brooks -- that he really did it. But. And -- real life examples. You play to win the game. It's still but that there weren't about wasn't for before big game that was I think that team was bad. Is it just. Yeah we. -- -- Now her Herm Edwards example was they were a bad team right -- the two were reporters were asking him about. You know the the the level of competition the intensity because that I could give him and maybe I'm come out wrong on this but I thought they were out of it. And he was saying -- you still even though we're out of it we're playing to win. And Denny Green and you -- crown to crown him now that's not really inspiring was funny entertaining. And in Bill Belichick you. You guys Tellme Geist tell me that he's he's understated he's not -- but the examples you brought up early -- Saturday before the Super Bowl. And one where he was going through the holes suit the. It's just before their last won their last Super Bowl win thirty yes yes of Philadelphia played Philadelphia. And it's got a parade route and he's telling them okay this is what they're gonna do and that's how we covered and then go out there and Victor and be ourselves and honest. It worked in a speech before Super Bowl 42. Well let out a couple anybody have a speech no -- I imagine it was something weakness. I. -- Super -- 42 don't think they can have done. -- -- thing ever come across this occasion again to be eight you know. Going into their final game. They embrace the stupidity don't embrace the stupidity embrace the month. Breaks when you are -- Talk about talk about the past. Talk about the past were eighteen and all we have a chance to do something that has never been done in the history of football. I don't want to be overwhelmed by this to be excited -- hit the accurate that position. Let you know when you're the best team in the world. Understated. That let. It. Now I I will say real life seems to intrude on our text line -- -- somebody who might hold some sound as Michael. You gave that speech for sports against the return room in the globally in 1998. Act that was great you guys only lost quite lucky that I. I don't work out that -- I don't now. Now weak link to your organ -- -- He doesn't believe that his team. But ESPN has come up with a -- campaign I guess in in complete opposition a year in Klinsmann. Yeah it. -- I swear they did this just because that looks. Like it's good. Now you're the most contemplate that -- uncle after rumor anything. Not techsters got some good examples. They're talking about rocky six. -- I'm a grown man I'm forty it was a more that was. -- the commentary on the media. What we've talked about all of this morning but I was different that was he was gone after. You journalists and -- in the editor. And a hybrid garbage is garbage and -- governor of the great range of detectors and Doc Rivers always father. 2010. Up. Well let's go let's go back 2008. When he gets all those guys together the Big Three. He takes some forty days say it's a he says to them beat me at my hotel. Meet me downtown macondo whatever is by. Marriott Copley Square the -- -- duck boat -- go on the parade route. This is what -- playing for that inspirational probably wasn't rob rob but just the idea of it in the missing banner. That he focused on the address I think it's better than that we're -- now remember 2010 and think about that. But they didn't win it but but he. Eat a lot about like I got -- the money in the Staples Center during your regular season game. We're going to be playing we're going to be playing for the championship we'll be back here in gonna find this money so they found the money that. Still there I think that's an indictment of the cleaning staff. Well I don't think Judas early clean up Obama it's -- -- Karl -- get their blood that for now all they checked that stuff out so he did that. Would remember that speech is too bad -- and at thirteen with a thirteen point in the fourth quarter. They didn't win it but he said before the game one day we'll have a reunion. Will come together we'll talk about this -- Let's make sure our ratings. Are ratings and we shaking. If you heard. These great speech I don't get to where you wanna go.

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.
