So, Major League Baseball's trade deadline is today, and the biggest trade looks to be… uhhh…. hmn. Kevin Garnett to the Celtics?
If you're down with all the trade talk, you can peep ESPN.com's report card here or a savvy, entertaining blog version here. Basically, the Braves got Mark Teixeira (pictured, left) for a playoff push but in doing so allowed the Rangers to get the better end of the trade, including hot catching prospect Jarrod Saltalamacchia, which sounds either delicious or very, very contagious. The Rangers continued building for the future by shipping off Kenny Lofton's ancient legs back to Cleveland for another young catching prospect, Max Ramirez. And it looks like the Phillies made a couple of small, smart moves to improve the team for the stretch run and the future.
There were some other trades, but it's still kinda early and I might fall asleep if I keep talking about baseball. Don't get me wrong, I love baseball. America's pastime, yadda yadda. But trade talk in the morning before I've had coffee? Or mescaline? I'd almost rather watch the WNBA. Almost.
