If Atkins were traded to LAA this would kill his value. Going from the extreme hitters park to a big park, a good hitting team to one that doesn't score much... His BA, HR, R and RBI would all take a hit.
You should pray that this doesn't happen. Nightly.
Colorado isn't an extreme hitters park anymore
Just to add on:
Atkins is more of a line drive/gap hitter, so the move shouldn't affect him much at all. He'd be going to a team that would bat him higher in the lineup and, like mentioned before, might protect him with VLAD.
One trade for the Rox's I would love is Chone/Saunders for Hawpe/Atkins
