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.

  1. I totally agree. Prospects are just that..."prospects", and you're rolling the dice on their future development. My gosh...and 2 pitchers too. Chances are these 2 will never see that majors. I guess getting something for Greinke is better than nothing...but we basically got a bag full of wishful thinking and not much more. Michael Hunt sings the praises of Dougie Melvin. I guess his one hit wonder of a ballclub makes him a genius.
