The trade deadline came and went, and some big names moved. Ken Griffey, Jr., will now clog the bench/OF in Chicago, the Red Sox somehow improved their team despite losing Manny Ramirez, and the Yanks found a long term replacement for the out-for-the-season Jorge Posada in Pudge Rodriguez.
In football news, Brett Favre is considering a 20 million dollar deal to NOT play this season for the Packers. I'm not sure what, exactly, he needs to consider. Take the deal!
And finally, in Bad Baseball action from Thursday night...
The Cubs further established their NL Central dominance by completing a four game sweep of the Brewers . . . Yankees pitching struggled against the Angels; Andy Pettite allowed nine runs on 11 hits and three walks in 5.1 innings of work, while reliever Chris Britton gave up three runs on seven hits in 3.2 innings . . . The Twins scored seven runs in the 7th and 8th innings to beat the White Sox . . . The Marlins pounded Rockies pitching. Colorado started Jorge De La Rose lasted just an inning and two-thirds before allowing seven runs on five hits and four walks. Reliever Kip Wells wasn't much better; he allowed four runs on four hits and four walks in 3.1 innings of work.
