July 30th MLB Trade Deadline catch up Post

The trade rumors and all the wheeling and dealings have been flying around like crazy so let’s get caught up a bit before we head into the final day of the frenzy.

  • The Yankees tried to acquire Dustin Ackley from the Seattle Mariners in a trade that would have sent OF Ramon Flores and Ben Gamel to Seattle. Seattle wanted more and the deal, hopefully, fell through.

  • The Yankees came back and acquired Ackley anyway fpr Ramon Flores and Jose Ramirez.

  • The St. Louis Cardinals have acquired first baseman Brandon Moss from the Cleveland Indians for a prospect.

  • The Toronto Blue Jays sent LHP Daniel Norris and two prospects to the Detroit Tigers for LHP David Price in a deal that is sure to shake up the American League East Division race. 


  1. I don't want to be over critical like little p suggests, but seriously? Blue Jays go and get Tulo and Price, and we get Ackley! Come on. First of all, where is he going to play? And who loses their roster spot? The guy is hitting .215 with 6 home runs. Maybe him and Drew will get a long.

    1. I'll be overly critical, this guy is worse than Stephen Drew and is likely going to lead to it being justified and "okay" in someone's mind to trade Refsnyder.

      Unless he replaces Garrett Jones.. then I don't see why but I understand it.

    2. Jones and Drew and Ryan shouldn't be on this roster, yet they are. When will people realize the elf needs to go.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
