Apparently the red sox were close to getting lyle overbay but things fell apart (most likely the head injury overbay suffered).

i think now that it turned out that overbay does not have a concussion, MAYBE the deal will get done, thats what i think. :)

Players can still be traded after August 31st but they're not eligible for the post-season roster of their new team.

Can't happen. Trade deadline is over. You can not make trades in September. We are keeping Overbay until the end of the season ... and hopefully that is it. I would rather have a younger stronger offensive Lind who has a good chance of injuring any pitcher who attempts to cover the bag (Purcey) over Overbay.

They wouldn't have given us much in return for Overbay.

I actually didn't know that. I was always confused when players get traded after the deadline.

Okay trades can still happen. But why would Boston trade for Overbay. It does not benefit them at all if he cannot be on the playoff roster, that would be the whole point. It would be logical for them to pick him up in free agency instead of giving up prospects or utility men for him.

NOT going to happen.

All important worthwhile trades have been completed. We will have everyone at the end of the season. The important thing is to get some picks out of the ones we can get picks for.
