Best Trade 

Kyle Farnsworth and Rick Ankiel for Tim Collins

Baseball's trade deadline fills small-market fans with dread, as struggling teams often trade away costly veterans. Not so in July, when the Royals sent Kyle Farnsworth and Rick Ankiel to the Braves. The trade rid the Royals of two overpriced and ineffective veterans, a clear case of addition by subtraction. But the Royals also obtained a legitimate prospect from Atlanta: reliever Tim Collins. Despite being built like an Olsen twin (5 feet 5 inches, 140 pounds), Collins struck out an absurd number of hitters during his minor-league career. He's an actual pitching prospect, not just a throw-in in a midseason salary dump.
