All of his "winners" are buyers, and all of his "losers" were sellers. Is his point that if you trade away ML talent for prospects, then you're automatically the loser in a trade?
Let's be clear, at ESPN Stark lists the Cubs as the Bronze Medal Losers (Phillies take the Gold in this category according to Stark).

And as for my own personal "losers" (They lost me, afterall) the Boston Red Sox were a) unable to figure out if they were buyers or sellers b) unable to unload one iota of dead weight on their aged, bloated roster (so they are largely same hunk of junk they were during last year's September swoon) c) only provided trade deadline drama/humor when Sweeny broke his own hand by punching a wall in the Boston dugout at the same time Reed Johnson was shaking teammate's hand goodbye in the visitors dugout in Pittsburg.
Brett's comments on the main board ("trading two months of Dempster") helps take the sting out of (or at least put perspective on) what feels currently like a dissapointment.
I am going to have some fun wrapping my head around all of Theo's Cubs moves. The fun is just going to come a lot easier when I feel we are getting back in the Major League hunt.
