The MLB trade deadline has come and gone and some players and fans are still stunned. New Boston Red Sox outfielder Allen Craig and Joe Kelly were traded for pitcher John Lackey. Both were loved by their teammates and they all were shocked when the announcement was made.
Speaking of the announcement, Derrick Goold of the St Louis Post Dispatch, both men found out that they were traded in different ways.
Craig, an All-Star just a year ago, was sitting in a room off the clubhouse with teammates when he heard about the trade on the television. Kelly read it first on Twitter. Other players heard about it first from the media or a website.
The Cardinals gave up some good guys for another pitcher. Hopefully the trade can help out both teams.
