The Oakland A's pretty much traded away their team before the deadline and I'm feeling really lowly for all the future greats they gave up.  Sure, they got prospects, but how does that help when your team is 2-16 since the all star break.  My poor A's :(

The Dodgers did better with picking up Manny Ramirez and the guy from Cleveland who I can picture and can't think of his name.  Ack!  I always like Manny despite his tempermentalness.  I hope the trade works out.  He can be great when he wants to be.

How did your team fare?
