I thought the Dodgers, Mets, and Reds has done well. I mean Reds all of sudden has a great ballpen. Dodgers deal might hurt them down the line as the 2 prospect they give up has real value but if they can re-sign Lugo I think they made out on top. Especially Betmit he will be solid for Dodgers for the years to come. Mets get more ballpen help they need and give up almost nothing in Nady to do so. In doing so they also acquire O Perez who still has the potential to be a good pitcher.
Yankees help themself offensively by getting Abreu, and Rangers get even more offense with Lee. I mean those are all good deals except the above mention 2 teams are already great offensive teams to begin with, they actually need more pitching.
In turns of trades for the future. I really like all the small market team trades. Brewers get 3 solid major leaguer for a rental of Lee. TB get yet another can't miss guy in Joel Guzman. Royals get a solid 1B prospect and Colorado gets deeper in pitching. I thought they all done well.
I think the biggest losers are the Angels, Astros, O's and Nationals. I mean just think if the Angels did get Abreu. Sure, he is get no more powers but this guy is a on base machine and he will help protect Guerro. I mean Angels could have getting him at a cheap price like the Yankees does, they could have get his solid bat and with their good pitching will make them one of the contenders for world series. Nationals could have unload Sorieno who they have no chances of signing and yet they decided to stick with him. I don't get this move. Unless there is an agreement with Sorieno to sign for extension, otherwise the GM should be fired. As for the Astros. I can't believe they actually want to trade away Oswalt, I mean now they probably has no chances of signing him. This is get to be the dumpest move ever. The O's failed to trade Tejada for Oswalt, Ensberg and Adam Everet, or E Santana and Ayber. If this is true then the GM should be fire on the spot. I mean heck anyone should have jump on both deals, and yet the O's GM actually let it go. Tejada's value would have never be higher. Shame on him.
Anyway that is my take on it. I think even thought I think Angels is one of the losers but I think they'd do fine this year. They probably won't win it all but if their prospects pens out like they did with Kendrick then they will be fine for years to come. They have get a good core of young pitchers in John Lackey, J Weaver, E Santana, with good veterns like Colon and Escobar. They have get 2 top notch relievers in Frankie and S Shields. If J Rivera's surge is for real. Watch out for the Angels next year. But not so good for Nats, O's and the Astros I think by failing to do any deal they have set themself further from beinb competitive.
