The Trade Deadline Comes & Goes

And a few notable deals got done and some of them could impact the Yankees.

The Rangers acquire Ryan Dempster for Christian Villanueva and Kyle Hendricks. Personally this does not scare me because I do not think Dempster's stuff translates well into the American League but hey what do I know.

The Reds acquired Kansas City closer Jonathan Broxton for Donnie Joseph and JC Sulbaran. Who? Yeah I know right...

The Marlins fire sale was over stated but they did trade Gaby Sanchez and Kyle Kaminska to the Pirates for Gorkys Hernandez and a competitive balance pick.

The Cardinals also acquired Marlins set up man Edward Mujica for Zack Cox.

The Red Sox acquired Diamonbacks reliever Craig Breslow which I find odd. The Red Sox sent Matt Albers and Scott Podsednick in the deal. I get that they needed a left handed reliever but Albers has been pretty solid for them.

The Giants may have got the best player at the deadline this year when they traded for 2013 arbitration eligible Hunter Pence. The Giants gave up Nate Schierholtz, Seth Rosin, and Tommy Joseph.

The Dodgers acquired Shane Victorino for Ethan Martin and Josh Linblom.
