Player to Dodgers
Player to Sox
Players to Pirates
The Deal: The Dodgers pulled arguably the biggest midseason deal in team history right at the Deadline, acquiring future Hall of Fame slugger Manny Ramirez from the Red Sox in a three-way deal that also saw Pittsburgh's Jason Bay head to Boston. The Pirates received two prospects from each team, including reliever Craig Hansen and third baseman Andy LaRoche.

Player to White Sox
Players to Reds
The Deal: The Junior Era in Cincinnati had its individual moments (see: 500th and 600th homers) but never really even approached the team success anyone hoped. Sent off in his walk year with his approval for a reliever and a Minor League infielder, Griffey goes to Chicago with his first trip to October since 1997 on his mind. GM Kenny Williams thought he had Griffey a few years ago, and now he finally reeled in the big bopper -- though that's not exactly an area of need for the White Sox. But if the crowded lineup creates enough power to propel them into October, it'll be worth it.
