Either the Royals make the decision to keep Sweeney (which would be bad for his fantasy value), or they decide to trade him to the highest bidder. These bidders could include Texas, Anaheim, Boston, NY (either team), Atlanta, etc..
If the Royals do in fact trade Sweeney, Anaheim would be one of the places I would least like to see him go (amongst reasonable destinations). They play in, at best, a neutral park, their team doesn't get on base, and the only notable bats in the lineup are Vlad (of course) and the overrated Anderson (the rest is filler). You should be praying he goes to Texas.
hey hey c'mon now. they are just slumping at the moment ....
besides, as for me i was getting excited as an angels fan, not as a fantasy player. sweeney over davanon at DH? i'll take it.
oh and garret anderson is not overrated. 600+ at bats in 8 straight years with a career avg of .299, 7 straight years of around 190 hits, 4 straight years of around 30 hrs and 115+ rbis ... those seem pretty good to me. he would be overrated if people spoke of him in the same breadth as beltran or etc, but i personally haven't heard anyone do that. he doesn't walk or get too many runs, but that's not exactly his role.
