Trade winds simmer down

Now that the 3 p.m. Major League Baseball trade deadline has passed, no player may move on without first clearing waivers.

It may take just as long to correctly explain the waiver rules as it will to figure out who came away winners in this year's round of dealing.

The early results certainly have the Yankees as winners, giving up only four minor leaguers for Bobby Abreu and Cory Lidle.

The Reds look like winners early, as they have rebuilt their bullpen.

The Dodgers, meanwhile, well let's just say they ought to come out of Ned Colletti's first trade deadline as GM a lot better than they did after Paul DePodesta's first deadline run in 2004.
