DEAL OF THE YEARThe Red Sox trade of two minor league players, outfielder Brady Anderson and pitcher Curt Schilling, to the Orioles for righthander Mike Boddicker. Last spring, prognosticators said the American League East team that made the best deal would win the division. Boston proved the soothsayers right when, after beating out other teams for Boddicker on July 29, it continued its post-All-Star-break rally and moved into the division lead for good on Sept. 5. After going to the Sox, Boddicker won seven games, including the 12-0 victory over Cleveland last Thursday that gave Boston a tie for the title. That was more wins than any Yankee starter had during the same period.
