    Guys traded at the deadline.

    Thought I do a updating thread of all the main players moved at the deadline.

    To see if they were an actual improvement over in house options.

    Texas
    SP Cliff Lee - 2-2 in 6 starts (4 QS) 2.63 ERA
    C Benji Molina - .582 OPS in 79 AB's
    IF Cristian Guzman - .294 OPS in 26 AB's
    IF Jorge Cantu - .702 OPS in 16 AB's

    Seattle
    1B Justin Smoak - .439 OPS in 63 AB's (Safco isn't Arlington)

    Toronto
    SS Yunel Escobar - .762 OPS in 84 AB's

    LA Angels
    IF Alberto Callapso - .628 OPS in 59 AB's
    SP Dan Haren - 0-2 in 3 Starts (1 QS) 3.60 ERA

    Arizona
    SP Joe Saunders - 1-1 in 3 Starts (2 QS) 3.37 ERA
    SP Dan Hudson - 2-0 in 2 Starts (2 QS) 1.15 ERA
    RP DJ Carrasco - 4 Appearances (4 IP) 9.00 ERA
    OF Ryan Church - .697 OPS in 9 AB's
    IF Bobby Crosby - .450 OPS in 8 AB's

    Chicago WS
    Edwin Jackson - 1-0 2 Starts (2 QS) 1.38 ERA

    Detroit
    IF Johnny Peralta - .679 OPS in 42 AB's

    LA Dodgers
    OF Scott Posednik - .536 OPS in 44 AB's
    RP Octavio Dotel - 3 Appearances (3 IP) 6.00 ERA
    SP Ted Lilly - 2-0 2 Starts (2 QS) 2.77 ERA
    IF Ryan Theriot - .614 OPS in 31 AB's

    Chicago Cubs
    2B Blake DeWitt - .860 OPS in 27 AB's

    Philadelphia
    SP Roy Oswalt - 0-1 2 Starts (1 QS) 4.38 ERA

    Houston
    SP JA Happ - 1-1 2 Starts (1 QS) 9.00 ERA
    1B Brett Wallace .865 OPS in 24 AB's

    Minnesota
    RP Matt Capps - 5 Appearances (5 IP) 1.80 ERA 2 Saves (3 Chances)

    Yankees
    1B Lance Berkman - .500 OPS in 27 AB's
    OF Austin Kearns - .425 OPS in 8 AB's
    RP Kerry Wood - 4 Appearances (4.1 IP) 2.08 ERA

    Atlanta
    OF Rick Ankiel - .448 OPS in 32 AB's
    RP Kyle Farnsworth - 4 Appearances (2.2 IP) 16.87 ERA
    SS Alex Gonzalez - .787 OPS in 81 AB's

    Pittsburgh
    C Chris Snyder - .714 OPS in 21 AB's
    SP James McDonald - 1-0 1 Start (1 QS) 0.00 ERA

    San Diego
    3B Miguel Tejada - .639 OPS in 37 AB's
    OF Ryan Ludwick - .464 OPS in 28 AB's

    Tampa Bay
    RP Chad Qualls - 5 Appearances (4.2 IP) 5.79 ERA

    St Louis
    SP Jake Westbrook - 0-0 2 Starts (2 QS) 3.46 ERA

    San Francisco
    RP Javier Lopez - 5 Appearances (4.1 IP) 0.00 ERA
    RP Ramon Ramirez - 4 Appearances (3.1 IP) 0.00 ERA

    So far not a whole lot of upgrades from all the movement. Which goes to show there really wasn't a whole lot out there past Lee.

    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Re: Guys traded at the deadline.

    I may get around to it myself at some point maybe in the offseason but it would be neat to keep track of the deadline deals, might give some a real indicator of what is fair and what is unreasonable in deals these days. The past 2 seasons buyers have been robbing people, well not all buyers but most.

    Love the thread idea. I think the Sox are going to regret the Hudson-Jackson swap.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
