What? I think a Trumbo-Harvey trade would be great for the Angels. It's a steal. hahahahahhaha

However,

I think it's fair to assume that Josh Hamilton wouldn't have played quite as well down the stretch as he did were the Angels in contention. Sorry.....still a little down on Hamilton..

d build the farm system. I see no harm in letting Johnson develop and watching if he pans out or not. Maybe Cowgill can resurrect some of what made him a blue-chip prospect previously, but then there's not much space to even play him. I may be wrong. I guess JB Shuck is finding at-bats and doing well, so maybe there is room?

Do you mind explaining to me the logic of the Kyle Johnson-Collin Cowgill trade? I realize that Cowgill is a pretty good minor league player (I remember watching him play live in the 2011 MiLB all-star game), but he really hasn't fully put it together at the big league level. It seems like an outfielder swap doesn't make any sense for the Angels, especially when Johnson is a fairly good prospect. I think, just as a lot of people do, that the Angels need to get out of "win now" mode for this year an

When I read that Wells article the other day I could barely believe what I was reading...Had to check to see if the author actually put his name on the piece.

Interesting take. CJ has definitely got a shooter's mentality--which is a real detriment to the team.

Glad to see that everything has worked itself out on this blog. Monkey With a Halo is definitely the best Angels blog I've been to!

Bobby Abreu's buyout is a $1 million vesting option. Does vesting mean that the player must agree to it?

The only thing worse than not making a move (Carl Crawford) is making a desperation move for an aging, past their prime player (Vernon Wells). Please, please, please management do not sign Aramis Ramirez. A decision like that will affect the club [negatively] for years down the road.

@monkeywithahalo So if he was to play this year it's likely that it would be at third?

Have you heard anything about what position Trumbo will play next year? (Assuming of course he is still an Angel). Obviously I would like to see him transition to third base, but I realize this is not the easiest of transitions for someone who has played first base for their whole life. We need him in our power-starved lineup, but as it is there is no spot for him in the outfield and with Kendrys manning first....idk

@Rick K. Agreed. Conger has the potential to do well. If Scioscia will give him the opportunity, the production will come.

Am I alone in not wanting CJ Wilson to sign with the Angels? I understand that we would be stealing the best pitcher from our division rival, but I feel like we have two other starting pitchers who are better than Wilson. The other key problem? Wilson can't perform under pressure. It was obvious this postseason as well as last year's postseason. He often struggles in regular season games that have a lot hinging on them. What are your thoughts?
