MLB trade deadline passes quietly

The Boston Red Sox got Jake Peavy late Tuesday. On Wednesday, the Baltimore Orioles snagged Bud Norris, while the Arizona Diamondbacks shipped Ian Kennedy to the San Diego Padres. And that was about it for a quiet deadline that saw few impact players move, despite several teams seemingly needing improvement. Of course, there's no guarantee a midseason acquisition will make a difference, while top prospects can change franchises -- or at least provide years worth of value.

Which of these teams will most regret not making a(nother) move at the trade deadline?
