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
I am a great fan of AK too. In my book, he will go down with Bobby Grich as the greatest 2B of all time for the Angels. Who will ever forget the "Kennedy Game" against the Twins in the 02 playoffs.
Unfortunetly, I think he must be dealt. Kendrick is playing up a storm in AAA. AK also has a bad wheel, so I think his time as a starter is also nearing and end. I hope that deal with Toronto for Hillenbrand goes through. I would love to see AK end his career as an Angel as a role player, a la Wally Joyner.
On the rumor mill side, I've heard about a deal for Miguel Tejada. It would be Tejada for O.C. plus pitching. Not sure if the pitching is at the major league level or not.
I hope it does not go through. Tejada is too much of a head case IMO. Don't need another one of those on the team.
If the Angels go for top tier player, I hope its Carlos Lee. He is supposedly available, but the Brewers are not out of it yet.
I also heard the A Ram might be available from the Cubs. He might be an interesting pickup.
