The Los Angeles Angels Make the Biggest Trade at the Deadline

The Los Angeles Angels definitely won the trade deadline by acquiring one of the best pitchers in the game in Zack Greinke.  With Zack Greinke, the Angels now have two aces in their rotation, and the best top four starters in the American League.  To acquire Greinke they only gave up three prospects, that were all expendable because they won't help them in the near future, and since there is no guarantee that they will be good MLB players.  As long as the Angels continue to play well and stay healthy, they will have a great shot at making a deep run in the playoffs.
