Who did the best at the MLB trade deadline? Tue, July 31, 2007
The Red Sox, who entered Tuesday leading the AL East by eight games over the New York Yankees, didn't want to take any chances of blowing their big lead and acquired closer Eric Gagne to bolster the back end of their bullpen.
The Rangers were the busiest team in the majors before Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET non-waiver trade deadline. Earlier, they completed the deal that sent Teixeira and pitcher Ron Mahay to the Braves for rookie catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and four minor leaguers.
