OK Who Should the Angels Trade, And For Whom

Postby Halo Homers » Thu Jun 22, 2006 1:20 am

OK, they need to make a deal soon if they are going to keep this seaon afloat.

I don't think Jeff Weaver is going to bring much. A medicore bat at best.

If they are going to make a trade, its going to have to involve Santana.

I personally like Miguel Cabrera. I think the Marlins would do a deal that say involves Santana and McPherson plus a minor league prospect.

i dont think trading jeff weaver is the answer...he doesnt have any trade value where we can get anything in return...and with question marks about our pitchers healths like colon and escobar...i think the angels would be smart to keep jeff around...not in the rotation...but keep him around in the pen...

they said they would only trade santana for a stud hitter...nothing mediocre...

i would luv to see cabrera get traded to the angels...but thats a pipedream...as many believe that florida will trade away cabrera and willis...i dont believe either of them are gonna end up on different teams by the end of this season...

some guys i think the angels will target are...soriano, carlos lee, or carl crawford...

i think tb doesnt want to let crawford go...even tho they are extremely deep in the OF...so i see soriano and carlos lee as the best canidates to be an angel by july 31...

I know I might get killed for this... but why not trade Frankie Rodriguez? He is just too sketchy as a closer in my book. We have Shields, who can legitimately be a 2 inning closer... Donnelly would be a 7th or 8th guy (depending on Shields usage) and Carrasco be a 6h or 7th guy with Romero being the lefty specialist.

I'd trade Francisco Rodriguez, Ervin Santana, and Dallas McPherson for Miguel Cabrera and possibly some minor league throw ins.

Then we'd finally have some stinking protection for Vlad as well as a stud 3B or OF... depending on what we do with Figgy, Erstad, Rivera, and GA. Our bullpen will still be good enough to hold the leads we'd be getting with MCab in this lineup. I mean I love Ervin Santana, but you gotta give up a stud to get a stud. Plus it will free up a rotation spot for Jered Weaver to come back up.

If anyone else thinks I'm crazy, go ahead, fire away. But I think we could get a lot of value for Frankie if we traded him... although I don't see that happening...

This is out of the top of my head so we could definitely tweak the deal around. I'm just tired of the same old crap we put out there everyday. We need to shake things up, and we wouldn't be mortgaging our farm system either.

interesting thought...

i like krod...so im not a fan of ur idea...but more so for that fact that i hate donnelly...he blows...hes not anywhere close to what he use to be when he was lights out...theres no way the angels would make it thru one run leads to our closer(even if it was shields)...

shields is the man and i definetly believe he can close...but u cant expect him to go 2 innings every night...

and is that really worth a one year rental?

Shields has a rubber arm. He can handle 120 innings over the course of a season.

This is only of course if MCab is under contract for atleast 3 years w/ the Halos.

I would not give up that much for a rental. That trade is for now, and the future.

Hopefully we'll start hearing some better rumors the next couple of weeks. I hate all this speculation.

Well the idea of trading Santana has gone by the boards with Jeff Weaver being released.

I would not mess with the Angel bullpen chemistry. That is the strength of the team. Would not mess with that mid-season.

I would trade Kennedy and 1 or 2 of the young guns, depending what we got back in return.

If it were Hillenbrand or Huff, then definetly Kennedy and either Morales or Kotchman.

Someone bigger like Miguel Cabrera, then we would have to part with 3 prospects. Florida would not want Kennedy.

Yeah, I think Santana is staying put... he's been our most consistent pitcher during the season... unless we can get Cabrera, I don't see us dealing Ervin.

As much as I love AK, it's Kendrick's position in 2007 and I think Kennedy's the odd man out. That being as, I like his defense at 2b and his bat in the #9 hole. Since Kendrick hasn't proven himself in the bigs yet, I say we keep AK there for the rest of '06.

If we trade for Cabrera, I think anyone except Vlad should be available. They are going to want three prospects, so I say let's give it to them if we can ink MCab to a multiyear contract. Players of his caliber are very rare, and if all we have to give up is prospects who have yet to prove themselves, I say go for it.

Has anybody heard of any specific rumors? Not just that the Angels are interested in so-in-so... but like Player(s) X for Player(s) Y
