Post-Trade Deadline Predictions for Boston Red Sox

Unless you consider acquiring Craig Breslow, trading a minor leaguer and placing Ryan Sweeney on the disabled list exciting, the Boston Red Sox were very boring and inactive on the July 31 trade deadline.

Boston GM Ben Cherington thought he would improve the Red Sox by trading Scott Podsednik and Matt Albers to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for left-handed reliever Craig Breslow, the deal confirmed via the team’s website.

The Red Sox also traded minor league first baseman Lars Anderson to the Cleveland Indians for Steven Wright, a minor league knuckleballer.

Aside from that, the only other news coming out of Boston was that they placed Ryan Sweeney on the 15-day DL with a fractured pinky that could cost him the rest of the season.

Cherington must be convinced that the team can now make a run towards playoff contention, but it sure will be close.

Here’s a look at how the remainder of the season could play for the Red Sox.
