Everything already happened.

Pudge Rodriguez.
Ken Griffey Jr.
CC Sabathia.
Rich Harden.

You're talking about three HOFers traded in two days, and then two stud pitchers traded a few weeks ago.

I'd disagree. I think it was a pretty eventful trade deadline. In fact Sportscenter just made up a whole team (a pretty decent one at that) of guys that were traded this year. With that many future hall of famers traded within 24 hours, I'd have to say it wasn't such a quiet deadline.

I'm actually going to go out on a limb and say that this was one of the most exciting and busy deadlines in quite a while, with big names past and present being moved (from Griffey to Teix to Harden to Manny to CC and more).

The Deadline was quiet. The few weeks before we're the big trades.

I don't understand how anyone could say yesterday was quiet, especially a Red Sox fan.

Manny AND Griffey traded on the same deal. Ivan the day before. To me the Deadline really starts around July 28th, as that's when you see the deals happening.

It was a very, very fun Deadline this year.

Hey tragedy, i'm sure this was a typo, but manny and griffey were not in the same deal.
