Under-the-Radar MLB Trade Deadline Deals That Will Pay Huge Dividends

With all the rumors behind us, we can start focusing on the future now that the MLB trade deadline has passed. Instead of focusing all our energy on the top deals, like Jake Peavy to Boston, we wanted to give credence to the trades that happened under the radar. 

It is hard to have a deal be underrated since there is so much publicity and reporting surrounding the deadline, but some moves will get more publicity than others based on the markets involved and standing of the teams.

However, there were a few deals that surprised us and are worthy of praise through discussion of how much impact they will have, either immediately or in the future. Keep in mind that a list like this could easily expand before August 31 with the waiver deadline period figuring to be very busy as teams move in and out of contention.

Here are the moves that had us nodding in agreement and understanding exactly why they were made.
