This Date In Recent Trade Deadline History

In recent years, July 29th has been the calm before the storm for deadline deals.

Last year, not a single trade was made on this date.  Same goes for 2004 and 2001.

We have to go back to 2003 to find a July 29th with significant trading.  The Yanks picked up Raul Mondesi for David Dellucci and some bums.  The Red Sox snagged Scott Williamson. And a few other relievers changed hands.

2002 featured a blockbuster that is still reverberating: the Phillies sent Scott Rolen to the Cardinals for Placido Polanco, Mike Timlin, and Bud Smith.
