That sure was an anti-climatic trade deadline for the Red Sox and that puts Dave Dombrowski in the spotlight. (Jen McCaffrey; The Athletic) ($$)

It could be construed as a failure to improve and could signal that this just isn’t the Red Sox’s year. (John Tomase; NBC Sports Boston)

That’s not how Dombrowski sees it exactly. (Nick Friar; WEEI)

Alex Cora isn’t panicking either. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

It could end up working out, particularly if Darwinzon Hernandez’s shift to the bullpen is a success. (Julian McWilliams; Boston Globe)

Or if guys like Ryan Brasier can get back on track. (Christopher Smith; MassLive)

Rick Porcello wasn’t angry about the trade deadline on Wednesday but he still wasn’t happy. (Julian McWilliams; Boston Globe)
