Aug. 24 -- The Red Sox trade Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto to the Dodgers for James Loney and a package of prospects (most notably pitchers Rubby De La Rosa and Allan Webster). The team sheds about $261 million in future payroll in the deal. Together, those four players represent 11 All-Star appearances, four Gold Gloves, three World Series rings, one World Series MVP, one LCS MVP and one All-Star MVP.
