Despite all the rumors, Red Sox GM Ben Cherington decided to essentially 'stand pat' with his horrifically underachieving team at the trade deadline. He did make one minor move just before 4PM—getting former closer Ryan Cook from the Oakland A's for "cash considerations". So, this Titanic of a team will continue its slide to the bottom—with not much hope for 2016 either. Thank goodness there is a waiver trade deadline in August—when, after all, we made The Great Punto Deal. We can only hope.
