 Hadlock Field - Home of the Portland Sea Dogs
In another effort to distinguish themselves as a child of the Red Sox, the Sea Dogs renamed all of its skyboxes after former Boston hitters such as Dwight Evans, Carlton Fish, Carl Yastrzemski, and Ted Williams, and once a month Red Sox-greats come to the ballpark to throw the ceremonial first pitch and sign autographs.
After a nine-year affiliation with the Florida Marlins, the Sea Dogs’ newest relationship with the Red Sox instigated a wave of interest with 36 sold out games and an average of 6,231 attendees per contest during the 2003 season… the most in franchise history.
Since their inaugural 1994 season, the Sea Dogs have sent 99 players to the big leagues including World Series MVPs Livan Hernandez and Josh Beckett as well as current Red Sox star Kevin Millar.

As Rick Aguilera was approaching free agency, he was traded to the Boston Red Sox and provided excellent relief work for the second half of the season.
Verdict: Even, Aguilera helped pitch the Red Sox into the playoffs while the Twins got a league-average pitcher (better than many who they were trotting out to the mound during this time) for the next three seasons.
Rather than just analyzing this trade straight-up, one must remember that the Twins resigned Rick Aguilera after the 1995 season (in the misguided belief that he could be a starting pitcher).
