The non-waiver trade deadline passed at 4 p.m. ET with a handful of moves at the end a number of teams that held tight for no good reason and an epic trade of Bud for Hoes and a Hader. Thanks to that deal all of us were winners. In the spirit of objective analysis however we present as a complement 10 more winners and 10 losers in no particular order from the deals that were done and those that weren't. WINNERS Boston Red Sox: The best player on the move was Jake Peavy and he went to the team that needed him most. Between Peavy joining the Red Sox's rotation and Matt Moore hitting the disabled list for American League East-leading Tampa Bay it was a fruitful 24 hours for the Red Sox especially since they didn't give up any of their best prospects. San Diego Padres: Ian Kennedy is a classic buy-low candidate whose flyball tendencies – he's got the sixth-lowest groundball rate among starters this year – should play significantly better at Petco Park than he did in Phoenix. Considering all it cost for at least two years of Kennedy's services was situational lefty Joe Thatcher relief prospect Matt Stites and a draft pick between the second and third rounds Padres GM Josh Byrnes might have made the best trade ever for a pitcher with an ERA over 5.00. Houston Astros: The dismantling continues and because of it Houston may now have the deepest farm system in baseball. That's the point of Jeff Luhnow's destroy-to-rebuild plan and shipping off starter Bud Norris to the Baltimore Orioles for L.J. Hoes Josh Hader and a draft pick along with dealing outfielder Justin Maxwell for promising A-ball pitcher Kyle Smith played into that. Already the Astros had parlayed closer Jose Veras into two other prospects. That's how this is done. Don't get cute. Don't get fancy. Just bite down swallow hard and hope your scouts are good. Detroit Tigers: All along the Tigers understood Jhonny Peralta was likely to take a suspension for his involvement with Biogenesis so turning an area of strength (outfield with young Avisail Garcia) into a replacement shortstop for the present as well as the next five years in Jose Iglesias was shrewd as can be. Iglesias may not hit. He will win Gold Gloves and with a staff of groundball mavens that's all they need.
