Tyler Cippard was pitching as the 2011 Non-Waiver Deadline passed and Drew Storen came on to a loud ovation in the top of the ninth inning with the Nats up 2-1 over New York. No deals have been announced as of 4:19 pm EDT. We'll have more information after today's game, but as of now it looks like the back of the Nats' bullpen will remain in tact. The Nationals and Twins were reportedly unable to come to an agreement with NatsInsider.com's Mark Zuckerman reporting in an article entitled, "Storen stays as deadline passes", that, "Twins GM Bill Smith wanted more players in addition to Storen included in the trade, while Rizzo was willing to deal the 23-year-old closer only if he got more than Span in return." 

We'll have more if there is more, but for now it looks like the deals that sent Hairston to Milwaukee and Marquis to Arizona will be it...

UPDATE 4:27 pm EDT: Storen just gave up a game-tying HR to left. Scott Hairston's second of the game ties it at 2-2. What are you going to do?
