Trade Deadline Notes

Not very many trades this year- the biggest, of course, being Manny-to-the-Dodgers/Bay-to-the-Red-Sox. It’s going to be so, so odd to see Joe Torre managing Manny Ramirez. Also, Ken Griffey, Jr. in a White Sox uniform is a site that I’ll never get used to, ever. And not just as a Twins fan.
As for the Pirates, I don’t see this trade making them better anytime soon, even if they do now have both Adam LaRoche and Andy LaRoche.
The Phillies made no trade, and I’m looking forward to hearing the talk radio idiots scream about it on the way home. Because clearly, the team that is in first place and has been for most of the season needs to make radical changes, and because they didn’t, it’s proof that the people in charge aren’t committed to winning.
