Who Struck Out and Who Went Deep at the Deadline?

The MLB trading deadline has come and gone and while some teams made great moves to either get back into contention or to hold on through the stretch there were others who struck out looking.

Going Deep
Boston Red Sox – Boston got what they needed to keep the Yankees at arms length down the home stretch. Sure they could have used Jermaine Dye but what they needed was a setup man and Eric Gagne will fill that role splendidly.
