    Ned Colletti said on Prime Ticket's Dodgers Live postgame show that he and Jim Thome spoke at about 8:30 p.m. tonight, right before his trade to the Dodgers was officially completed, and Thome said that he is eager to contribute but that "playing first base is probably not going to be an option."

    The guys at Truebluela.com are speculating that since the Diamondbacks chipping in so much money that we could be giving up a high level prospect...

    Both are decent pickups. Thome is a nice stick to come off the bench and would make a nice DH should LA make the WS. Garland is good insurance for Kuroda or Padilla, whichever doesn't work out. I'll take him over Penny, that's for sure.

    I might have missed it, but what is Garland's contract status?
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    He has signed a one year 7.25 million dollar deal with a mutual 10 million dollar option for next year. If the player declines he has to pay 1 million. If the club declines they have to pay 2.5.

    The D-Backs are paying the remainder of Garland's contract and either the 1M or the 2.5M.

    Right, the best way to describe Garland is average. In the NL in Dodgers stadium he's probably above average, which isn't bad at all if you are asking him to be at the end of the rotation. The good thing about him is he eats up innings.

    I like both pickups, but can someone explain how these deals were done, with the deadline was apparently July 31st? Honest question--I don't get it. These weren't waiver wire pickups, these were trades. How does that work?

    The July 31st deadline is for non-waiver trades to be completed. All they need is league approval and they are commenced. The month of August you can put guys on waivers and anyone that gets all the way through waivers can be traded as well. If a team makes a claim on a player the team that put them on waivers can pull him back, allow him to walk or work out a trade with the team that claims him. Last night was the deadline for this "waiver trade" to happen and still have the player traded eligible to play in the post season.
