I just saw this on ESPN News.

Thanks to Nissan for finding the story via LA Times:

The Dodgers today acquired veteran pitcher Greg Maddux in a trade with the San Diego Padres, according to a person familiar with the deal, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

It was not immediately known who was sent to San Diego in exchange for Maddux, a future Hall of Famer who is 6-9 this season with a 3.99 earned-run average.

SOURCE

I'll keep this updated as news breaks.

1. He's a living legend who has a little bit of establishment in LA
2. His ERA isn't thhhat bad
3. His record looks bad because of the horrible run support in San Diego.

It's all going to come down to what they gave up.

But he's not the same pitcher man. He just doesn't get the job done. I hope he can prove me wrong and show me otherwise

I'm not too thrilled by this

He's still REALLY good. I wrote an article about him a couple days ago...that puts the Dodgers over the top.

How can a sub 4.00 ERA pitcher who hasn't missed a start be a bad thing? I don't understand.

I don't follow baseball, but this has always confused me:


how are players being traded AFTER the trade deadline?

That's a fantastic question because it's confusing as hell. It's a non-waiver trade deadline. If you want to trade someone after the deadline, there are waiver considerations. That's the short answer.

The Dodgers seriously need to make the Playoffs for this to payoff.

The Dodgers need to do something in the playoffs for this to payoff. especially if Manny leaves.
if they don't make the world series and Manny leaves, than I would be pssed off. As far as Maddux, he is still a good pitcher. He has a solid ERA. He would probably be 9-6 if the Padres actually had a Major League lineup. a pretty good tradeoff for Penny at this point if you ask me.

Good enough for me! No detail needed. I was just annoyed that ESPN and the like play-up the whole "trade deadline countdown" blah blah and never make mention of this when trades happen after the deadline. Maybe they just assume that the only people reading about this stuff are baseball fans who should know better.

I kind of hate baseball, but I oh-so-loosely pay attention to it. Weirdly, I love listening to Bill Simmons talk baseball with his Yankee-fan friend Jack-O, even though I have no idea what they're talking about.

To get Maddux, the Dodgers traded him to San Diego for two Minor Leaguers to be named or cash considerations, probably after the season ends. The teams will share the cost of the remaining $2.3 million of Maddux's $10 million contract. Maddux had a no-trade clause, but told the Padres he would waive it for the Dodgers so he could remain close to his Orange County home.

damn this writer made alot of typos.
