    Angels love throwing money away. From Rendon to Pujols to Hamilton to Vernon to Gary Matthews JR. And since Trout signed his big contract he has not done anything but get injured. Give me a young hungry player anytime over moody sullen Rendon who just wants his 7 year 250 million dollars. So far he is 0-19 with game losing errors at 3rd. And those numbers are better than last years.

    Throw in Altman to the Angels ; they would probably do it and it would be good deal for both squads ! Angels get two position players , two pitchers , two prospects adding talent depth and youth. Dodgers continue Fantasy Island cruise to Series
