MLB Trade Deadline for 2022 Reveals Winners and Losers in Several Deals

The 2022 MLB Trade deadline has passed, and it has been a crazy ride. The deadline was Tuesday at 6 p.m. ET as the teams could no longer make deals to bolster their rosters ahead of the stretch run. One of the most talked about trades being Washington’s Nationals trade with San Diego Padres in exchange for Juan Soto. 

“Props to the San Diego Padres. They’re not afraid. A.J. Preller is not afraid. We’re on a bumpy road right now, and we believe coming out of it will be a beautiful place,” said Nationals GM Mike Rizzo after the trade.

Other very notable trades addressed after the trade are Josh Hader (Brewers to Padres), Luis Castillo (Reds to Mariners), Frankie Montas (Athletics to Yankees), Joey Gallo (Yankees to Dodgers), Noah Syndergaard (Angels to Phillies), Harris Bader (Cardinals to Yankees), Raisel Iglesias (Angels to Braves), and Whit Merrifield (Royals to Blue Jays).

Winners 

San Diego Padres

The San Diego Padres acquired not only Juan Soto but also snagged Josh Bell, Josh Hader, and Brandon Drury. All of which are strong players with stats to impress any MLB fan or coach. The San Diego Padres came away as the big winners of the trade deadline.

New York Yankees

The New York Yankees acquired Andrew Benintendi, Frankie Montas, Lou Trivino, and Scott Effross. They also traded Joey Gallo, who many believe was a bad player. So, not only did they gain great players, but they also subtracted a bad player from the team, giving them a greater chance at a title this season. 

Losers

Boston Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox decided to trade Christian Vasquez to Houston and added Eric Hosmer and Tommy Pham from San Diego. Hopefully, this doesn’t backfire for the Sox once again. The same framework they had last season might have them doomed once again.

Washington Nationals

After giving up two of their greatest players, Mike Rizzo and Josh Bell, the Nationals may have set themselves up for failure this season. Giving up on general talent and the other a .300 hitter is enough to put them at the bottom of the barrel.

    Dance: Is it an Art or a Sport?

    Oftentimes we are taught to think of things in terms of their opposites: good versus bad, hot versus cold, dark versus light. It’s this mode of thinking that has led to many harmful stereotypes and disagreements. It is a limited way of thinking, and we should thus seek to move beyond its constraints. That is why when the matter of deciding whether dance is an art or a sport, my answer is less restricted. I think it is both.
