Looking back at the Redsox trade of Anibal Sanchez in 2005

Having seen Sanchez obliterate the Braves last night, striking out 17 in a magical 8 innings only, the question on Redsox fans lips this morning is, was it worth it? Here's an in depth look at the trade, and how it has panned out for Boston in particular.

Hopefully you have 5 minutes to check it out, and if you like it, share it around! Here's also hoping you are having as good a weekend as Anibal Sanchez.

Peace. Mac.
