When MLB made the decision to add the 2nd Wild Card team for the playoffs the Trading Deadline forever changed. 28 teams made trades in the last week with 16 of them making multiple deals. This is a great thing for the game of baseball. Biggest surprise for me was the Blue Jays making a couple big trades and only being 1 game over .500. Also the Padres doing nothing was a huge surprise.
