Boston Receives: Doug Mientkiewicz and Orlando Cabrera
Montreal Receives: Alex Gonzalez, Francis Beltran, Brendan Harris
Minnesota Receives: Justin Jones
Chicago Receives: Nomar Garciaparra and Matt Murton
Let this be said; Nomar Garciaparra was one of the greatest Red Sox of all-time. Sure, he got injured and that affected his play but there was no need to trade him at that point of his career. I understand that Mientkiewicz and Cabrera played huge roles in winning the World Series in 2004. but I will never forgive the Red Sox for trading Nomar. He was an icon. and they sent him away. There is no doubt in my mind that Boston still could've won a World Series with him at shortstop. It's a shame that his career didn't end the way that it started, but he will forever be in the hearts of Red Sox Nation.
