Jeff's Trade Deadline Winner: Boston Redsox
Brief--Their most notable trade was that-of-which landed C/1B Victor Martinez from the Cleveland Indians. They needed a jolt in their lineup to get their offense going again and Martinez can do just that which exactly what they wanted, and needed. They also got 1B Casey Kotchman from the Atlanta Braves to add to their deapth.
Jeff's Trade Deadline Loser: Cleveland Indians
Brief--They gave up two proven "stars" such as Cliff Lee, Victor Martinez and also gave up three good role players in Ryan Garko, Ben Francisco, and Rafael Betancourt. Despite giving up all that, they didn't get a single Major Leaguer who has proven himself. In the past two seasons, the Indians have given up the reigning AL Cy Young Winner and haven't gotten a Major League Player in either deal.
