On July 31st, the MLB non-waiver trade deadline, the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired Manny Ramirez as part of a three way trade with the Boston Red Sox and Pittsburgh Pirates.  Ramirez has been on fire since joining his new squad and the Dodgers are just 1.5 games back of the Diamondbacks in the National League West standings.  Today, Arizona struck back, adding power slugging outfielder Adam Dunn in exchange for Dallas Buck and two minor league players to be named later.  The trade was first reported by Sports 620 KTAR’s John Gambadoro.  Dunn, is tied with three others for the major league lead in home-runs with 32 and is expected to start in right field for the first place Diamondbacks.  Prior to the deadline, there were rumblings that Dunn may be traded to the Red Sox or Rays, but neither came to fruition.
