What to expect next from the Angels
With the signing of Joe Blanton, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are all but out of the Zack Greinke sweepstakes. This was an extremely questionable decision made by Angels GM, Jerry Dipoto. However, Dipoto has been known to counter his “bad” moves, with great moves. I think the Angels will be looking to trade for a number 2 or number 3 starting pitcher.
I think these moves are possible from the Angels:
- They trade SP/RP Garrett Richards and C Hank Conger to the Tampa Bay Rays for SP James Shields/SP Jeremy Hellickson.
- They trade CF Peter Bourjos and C Hank Conger to the Tampa Bay Rays for SP James Shields/SP Jeremy Hellickson.
- They sign SP Anibal Sanchez, SP Kyle Lohse, or SP Ryan Dempster.
- They trade CF Peter Bourjos and SP/RP Garrett RIchards to the New York Mets for SP R.A. Dickey.
No matter what happens, you can always expect Jerry Dipoto, “JeDi”, to make the best move(s) possible for the Angels.
