In a perfect world, all trades would result in a win-win scenario for every team involved.

We don't live in a perfect world. There were a handful of clear winners and losers at this year's non-waiver trade deadline.

In most cases, the losers were teams who should have made some trades, but either made the wrong trade (Arizona and Cleveland) or didn't make any trade at all (Seattle).

Winners, on the other hand, either drastically improved their chances at making the playoffs this season (Boston and Baltimore) or successfully restocked their roster and farm system for a better run in a future season (Chicago Cubs).

Read on for a full list of winners and losers, along with an explanation for each.
