The 2012 MLB Non-Waiver Trade Deadline came and went yesterday. It had moments of excitement, moments of tiredness and moments of utter boredom, and then moments of rushing around the office to fulfill obligations that one really should have known better than to schedule for such a day. However, through it all, we, as baseball fans, emerged holding a more accurate picture of the rosters that will compete for this year’s World Series.
Of course, changes can still happen, and certainly more trades will occur in the coming weeks, but none in such a flurry that occurred over the last 24 hours, and none without a player first having to be put on waivers. After the 4:00 PM deadline passed, we spoke with a couple of bloggers about the adjustments their teams made and talked a little bit ourselves about some other trades in a very special Trade Deadline Edition of the Getting Blanked Podcast, available right here, right now:
And, if audio isn’t your thing, here’s a recap and capsule review of every trade that occurred on the day of the deadline, for your reading and viewing pleasure.
