Chone in Pinstripes, Jason with Halo?

Postby StringerBell » Wed May 23, 2007 11:11 pm

Rumours abound in NY amid two Giambi controversies:
testing positive for amphetamines and admitting to steroid use.

The NY Post mentioned that Figgins/Molina for Giambi was being discussed.

How does this affect the Figgins situation? He probably would no longer be a starter.
Although he probably couldnt produce any worse than he is now in the 9th spot.
Ive owned him for 3 years----without the steals , he`s not much use.

Heres a link to the situation:

Honestly? This is the craziest thing I've ever heard, and if the Angels are even considering it I would be surprised.

At this point, with Giambi's performance this season, his off the field distractions, and his likelyhood of fixing up either of them in the near future, the most the Angels should be looking to give up would have to be a pitching prospect, and that's only assuming that the Yankees are willing to pay more than a third of Giambi's remaining contract.

Seriously... Figgins and Molina may not be broadway players at this point, but I wouldn't trade either one of them straight-up for Giambi right now. Let alone both of them. That's just crazy talk.

If the Yankees do decide to cut ties with Giambi during the season this year, they're selling LOW. Real low. Not only are they going to be stuck holding the bag for a bunch of his contract, but they're going to be lucky to get anybody in return. Definitely not two everyday starters.

If I were the Angels, I would be a fool not to trade Figgins and a scrub like Molina for Giambi. Giambi can definitely protect Vlad, and clearing Molina opens the way for Mathis to platoon along side with Napoli. The Yanks can use the disruptive speed of Figgins at the bottom of the order.

Of course, I think the Angels should wait and see the verdict on Giambi this season before pursuing him.
