I'm Bryant leverage on budget -- the former big league general manager of the trade deadline of baseball -- Coming down to give -- spotlight winners and losers starting with teams that aren't playoff contention who wrapped themselves. All right obviously the Texas Rangers the number one winner at the trade deadline you get currently at number one starter. Bengie Molina the catcher that solved that problem and then when the smoke deal in opening at first base. So was jogging as the GM do it turns out -- a portrait gets Jorge Cantu from the Florida Marlins. And to top it all up you can get -- with his leg and all of a sudden. He got that gets Christian Guzman on the national so that's number one -- winner that you look at the Padres they needed to get another bat. In order to I think hold up Giants they don't like one -- at bat to bat they get Ryan Ludwick. For two pitching prospects -- -- that in the long term plans of the Padres an addition. Now be -- that. Just ordered GM of the Padres told me that he can play both third base and shortstop for the cattle round. That gives them depth about the Phillies I'm guessing you like -- owes loyalty all -- like the -- was well on the Phillies at another top of the rotation starter. With Halladay Cole Hamels and a third guy that did but the one thing that -- didn't use the concerns Brian. Think unsolvable problem I think the Phillies are going to be in this thing. To the end they get to the post season they're in good shape with the top starters there but the bullpen or me question that. But -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- you like in terms of winners while like the New York Yankees. It is a lot because Atlanta for all the position Nick Johnson is not doing well let's come back and -- questioned whether or not gonna make it back this year all Lance Berkman has high if OBP and all of baseball all active players. He brings great make the club and Brian Cashman told me earlier that he really wanted to depict the bench in the bullpen. 82 small moves that are gonna make a difference often -- good defender and in both right and -- give them a right. Ian hitter that allows them that you granderson up against the -- let people Gardner's Centre or important -- harder or give it -- -- at the -- that's gonna help the bench. And the bullpen but -- know Kerry Wood is having the best years. A lot of people -- yet you come back out two months of the season Brian. And I think the fact is the opera and Chan Ho Park in the designated for assignment when that would -- is just the Dodgers picking up Ted Lilly. And Ryan Theriot why there's no question that your starters season was over so nickel lady at the budget it would had to do. He got -- -- are no Lilly's record isn't good look at. His run support second worst in the National League all stars of the last six weeks Ted -- gives them a guy that's won this whole life. It allows them to have a third starter -- -- on Billingsley. Along with Andy -- give them innings and also the last move to get Dotel was the worst move up the Dodgers made long term -- I think in two sample is gonna hit a good player but -- gives them experience and with the young kid. -- at the back and now with rocket and quote the dodgers' bullpen quickly is one of the better ones in the league okay have winners among teams are probably won't make it one of the policies that's a great question Brian it's not contenders have a really good chance of helping -- future. At this deadline and at the club that I thought. Really help themselves for the future we start the Angels. The Angels might mean sorry. I know their only eight games back right now but I think it's next year. Both parent yeah well help them build for 20112012. He -- gives them atop their rotation -- Weaver and yet they should be very good going sport. The other two teams I thought it really well Astros. In their deal or almost all did you happen only 27 years old he might not be one or two starter but he is salt creek or force starter so -- -- -- with a good party acquisition and the key force. Brett Wallace they took it any goat who got -- as well POA turned him over to Toronto. While the guy to 88 point five in the future for them so that was a good acquisition. And lastly the Washington Nationals that get their future catcher in Wilson Ramos remember when they sign that camp it was non tendered by Pittsburgh. Out there for thirty clubs that -- he has a great burst out. Boom boom bam -- turned into a pot catching prospect right well. Nice going like resign like the boom boom down all right from winners to losers which teams missed opportunities while the Boston Red Sox the biggest losers Brian they need to get some bullpen help help get -- and Papelbon that didn't happen that huge hole. For the Red Sox -- -- disappoint in that. Also the San Francisco Giants now right -- of them actually runs in July. A lot of people think they don't need at all bets now on pace for a great spot Buster Posey becoming one of the best young players all baseball quickly without a -- That means that they Giants needed to get our that they didn't give -- -- -- that they didn't get Corey Hart. I still think there's achieved August -- you know Ian from Kansas City. If they don't hit it -- but Bryant stayed in the get it back and get down there closer and finally from me the Tampa Bay Rays. No question they needed a bat Joe Maddon told -- earlier in the week the manager Tampa Bay. It five there's no like -- forty probable low he. He really wanted to get about it in the running for -- at the last hour couldn't get it done so doing that didn't do get a reliever Jack while the but maybe if he gets better pitches last couple months but they get the job -- who would've thought the Red Sox -- Giants were basically. Get shut out the buzzer but they did. Three teams though that still could make the playoffs get some sleep even -- -- -- look at the public we appreciate it's night. More baseball videos you blog on the passports that knob Ford Jim O'Brien will -- next.
