The trade deadline summed up in one word

Nothing_512_512 A whole lot of nothing happened today. No Michael Young, no Phil Hughes boring.

Brian Cashman spoke with the media and said there were a lot of conversations, then there was some traction and then some rejection. Sounds like a bad relationship to me.

So today was a waste of time for most baseball fans. There were some moves but nothing earth-shattering. The "big" last minute move was Drew Butera being traded from the Twins to the Dodgers for a player to be named later.

Ooooh. Exciting.
