The trade deadline has blown through and there has been little action so far.

The only major move of the day has the Reds sending Ken Griffey, Jr. to the White Sox for prospects. Great move by the Sox who are in desperate need of offense in the outfield.

Jr. Griffey’s best day’s are probably behind him, but he can generate offense for the final two months of the season to help the Chi Sox.

Other trades:

LHP Arthur Rhodes to the Marlins

I will keep you updated on any more activity if a deal is announced following the deadline.

3:35 Update:

The first wave to reach the shore was a tsunami as we get word that Manny Ramirez has been traded to the Dodgers and Jason Bay has been traded to the Red Sox.

In exchange, the Pirates received a combination of four prospects from both the Sox and Dodgers.

The Dodgers have won the NL West today, in my eyes. And the Sox get a younger player who is just as productive as Manny. And most importantly: he wants to be in Boston.

If anything else breaks, I will keep you updated, but again:

Boston receives: Jason Bay

Dodgers receives: Manny Ramirez

Pirates receives: 4 prospects.
