In what was starting to look like a relatively benign trade deadline in 2014, fireworks began to fly in the morning of the final day with the trade of Jon Lester to the Oakland A’s, and didn’t let up through a last minute deal to send David Price to the Detroit Tigers.  It’s not often you see the American League East as mostly sellers. Once the dust settled on a busy day, we evaluate the top four winners and losers on the day of the 2014 (non-waiver) trade deadline:

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
