Take a look at the Angels next 18 games. If they are going to contend, they need to do well against these teams.
1 @Sea , 4 @ Oakland, 3 Tampa, 4 Cleveland, 4 @KC, 3 @TB.
If they can go 12-6 or 11-7, they would be 1 game above or below .500, and then I think they will make a deal for a hitter.
Probably trade Kennedy and a one of their prospects. Don't see them trading any pitching now that Jeff Weaver has been let go.
