LONDON — Brief and to the Point …
>> The Wednesday Olympics column looks at the amazing double redemption of Jordyn Wieber and Michael Phelps, best things that have happened here yet.
>> I also have a Pirates column about the trade deadline.
For full coverage of everything that happened on that front, check our Pirates page. Rob Biertempfel and Karen Price have much more.
Those took up the better part of the day, so I’m humbly turning over the bulk of blog duties to you today with this simple, broad question: What did you think of the trades?
