Post Trade Deadline: What Do You Think?

The non-waiver trade season has come to a close and the Rays roster is not drastically different.

  • ACQUIRED: Reliever Chad Qualls from the Arizona Diamondbacks for a player to be named. Qualls takes Grant Balfour's spot in the bullpen while he's on the 15 day disabled list. When Balfour comes back, the Rays will have to make a move, most likely with either Lance Cormier or Andy Sonnanstine.
  • ↵
  • NOT ACQUIRED: Starting pitcher Cliff Lee, sluggers Adam Dunn, Jayson Werth or any of the other big names (Manny Ramirez? Seriously?) that were circulating on the rumor circuit.
  • ↵
  • They brought up #1 prospect, starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson, although he's not expected to stick around after making a spot start this Monday against the Twins.
  • ↵

Those are the facts. So, quite simply, what do you think?
