The Los Angeles Dodgers made sure that this record will stand for the time being with a couple trades on Tuesday. The Dodgers first picked up shortstop Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies. Rollins and second baseman Chase Utley had been the active leader in this category-playing together since 2004.

And as for Trammell and Whitaker's permanent place in MLB history, i.e. Cooperstown. Trammell's is in his last year on the ballot and Whitaker has been long off the ballot due to lack of votes. In my opinion(probably a bit biased), I do believe both belong in the Hall of Fame. I have a feeling that the veteran's committee will elect them together at some point in the future. Just as they did in 1946 with Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance thanks to a famous poem .
