It's time to take a look back at the highlights of this past week which included the waiver trade deadline..
- Unquestionably, the biggest story of the week was the White Sox being awarded Manny Ramirez after submitting the winning claim. Chicago will owe the slugger $3.8MM for the remainder of 2010 but three-quarters of that will be deferred without interest. White Sox GM Kenny Williams doesn't think that the quirky superstar will be a clubhouse distraction.
- Texas swung a deal for Jeff Francoeur by sending Joaquin Arias to the Mets. The Rangers DFA'd Brandon Boggs to make room for him.
- The Marlins and pitcher Ricky Nolasco are far apart on terms for a long-term contract. The hurler still has two arbitration years left because of his Super Two status.
- Matt Kemp is reportedly seeking a deal similar to that of Nick Markakis but knows that he won't get that out of the Dodgers.
- The Dodgers will be on the lookout for a big bat and a catcher this offseason. They will also pursue an extension with Ted Lilly. The Yankees had the winning claim on the lefthander but couldn't get a deal done with Ned Colletti & Co.
- The Rockies bolstered their bullpen by acquiring Manny Delcarmen from the Red Sox. Boston received minor league righty Chris Balcom-Miller in return.
- Righthander Chad Durbin wants to return to the Phillies and it sounds like the feeling is mutual.
- Mark Prior inked a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers. The righthander will turn 30 on Tuesday.
- For the umpteenth time, the Rangers were on the cusp of acquiring Mike Lowell but ultimately did not.
- Washington extended Livan Hernandez's deal, giving him a $1MM, one-year pact laden with incentives.
- Two MLB stars have parted ways with their agents. Alex Rodriguez is no longer with Scott Boras and Jayson Werth is looking for new representation.
- Oakland signed Jeremy Hermida and assigned him to their Triple-A affiliate. He was cut loose by the BoSox earlier in the week.
- The Mets are open to a multi-year deal with knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.
- Milwaukee will be on the lookout for pitching this winter.
- The Red Sox claimed Mike Napoli on waivers but couldn't reach a deal with the Halos.
- Minnesota shipped Loek Van Mil to the Angels to complete the Brian Fuentes deal. The Twins DFA'd the 7'1" pitcher earlier in the week.
- Colorado signed Luis Ayala.
- Former big league catcher Mike Rivera found a new home with the Marlins.
- The Padres DFA'd righthander Cesar Carrillo on Wednesday.
