Default A trade the Angels should make

How about this trade?

Adam Kennedy and Josh Paul to the Rockies for Vinnie Castilla and a lefty out of their bullpen.

Then move Figgins to second and have Castilla play third.

Castilla stays till MacPherson is ready (2006).

AFter Kennedy hit those three homers in the ALCS against Minnesota, he thinks he's a power hitter. Uppercutting everything. There goes his on-base percentage.

We are flush with catchers and infielders, except 3rd basemen. On the ML roster and in the minors. But no lefties out of the bullpen. And we have to keep Figgins in the lineup. He's better at second.

Glaus has played his last game at third for the Angels.

I'd feel sorry for the Rockies making such a dumb move, but that would help the Angels. Don't understand Kennedy's swing as he's killing his %, and the team.

Right on, where Figgy should be. Been playing great at third,
gotta give him credit, and it's really been a big surprize
how adaptable he's been, and the clutch hitting.

Whoa there PJ... Say it ain't so!!! I believe Troy will be back
and better than ever, as he's really just coming into his prime,
capable of excellent defense and offensive production...

You know, Castillo is a product of playing in the Mile High altitude of Denver and his hitting goes way down when not playing there. Besides, I think they need more pitching. Their starters rank like 10th in the league and it looks like Colon has ate himself into a bad pitcher.

I was listening the the pre-pregame show on the radio the other day and the Angel announcers (members of the organization, mind you) were stating that even if Glaus makes a fast recovery from his injuries, he would likely not return at third. He would be forced to DH.

And given Stoneman's style, he won't dish out the kind of money that Glaus will want as a free agent next year.

Besides, the kid MacPherson is only a season and a half (at most) away from being a starter. He will play at under 1 million for probably at least 3 seasons.

As much as Glaus has meant to this organization, I wouldn't sign him either. And I really like the guy. But it seems like a business no-brainer.

There been talks about moving Glaus to 1st base!! I agree Kennedy needs to go and Figgens should take over the role at 2nd.

I saw that speculation, but what about Erstad? Believe he's signed through 2006 as is most of the outfield, so he can't go back there. Too valuable in the field to be a lefty DH. And then there's Kotchman who looked pretty good in the bigs this year.

Man, would it be nice to have Spiezio back to play third!

Truth be told, I'm not that high on Eckstein either. What happened to his discipline at the plate? He's swinging at worse pitches than Vlad.

Maybe just move Figgins to short, keep Kennedy, release the Eck.
