Mike Trout 20 year deal
@jonmorosi: Anibal Sanchez is asking for around $90 million, sources say.
At the absolute most he should get 4 years/60M
I wouldnt give up Bourjos for Dickey. Trumbo I think I would give up for, but I honestly wouldn't be interested in Dickey just because you don't really know if Dickey can have another solid, doesn't need to be great like this year, consecutive seasons.
Maybe I do a package of Cogner and other OF'era, but not much.
Also, I know pretty much up to date baseball players from Minors, MLB, and Japan but I havent really heard anything about this Fujikawa guy.
If he can dominate like Darvish then im all in it.
MIKE TROUT FOR MVP!!!!!
what would you give up for wright. would you want him as an angel.
trout for mvp
.With a shortage of possible trade chips, it appears #Angels will focus on free-agent market to fill pitching needs.
Edwin Jackson, Shaun Marcum, Brandon McCarthy and Joe Saunders could all be solid 4 or 5's in our rotation. If we fail to sign Greinke, I'd like them to get 2 of those and look into Lohse.
We should also take a flyer on Aardsma. Did he have TJ surgery or why did he miss the '11 season? He used to be pretty dominant.

The incumbent Angels are seen as the favorite for Greinke, but as one GM said here, they are going to get geographic (Dodgers) and divisional (Rangers) competition. The Nationals are one of many others who may make a play for Greinke, and as Angels GM Jerry Dipoto said, 'I assume all 29 teams have some level of interest.'
Texas has made no offer to Hamilton (no, the Rangers didn't make a three-year offer, as rumored), and while they've held open the possibility of bringing him back, they are concentrating their efforts on Greinke while allowing Hamilton to look elsewhere.
The Rangers' chances to keep Hamilton may now depend on them 1) losing out on Greinke, and 2) Hamilton finding nothing great elsewhere.
Rangers people insist this isn't a C.J. Wilson situation whereby they had basically no intention of bringing Wilson back from the start last winter. But it is clear Hamilton isn't the top priority for them, even among the big names.
The Rangers' chances to trade for Justin Upton, which presumably would have shut the door on Hamilton, appear very remote now that the Diamondbacks have said they only want Jurickson Profar or Elvis Andrus and Texas has said "no'' on both players. However, it appears likely that many, many things would have to break right (or wrong, depending on one's perspective) for Hamilton to wind up back with Texas.
The Future is NOW!
I think the Rangers are in on Greinke primarily to drive up his price.
Lohse's career numbers
IP 1973 ERA 4.45 WHIP 1.37 K/9 5.6 BB/9 2.6
Pineiro's career numbers
IP 1754 ERA 4.41 WHIP 1.35 K/9 5.4 BB/9 2.5
Both sub par pitchers then have 2 good years leading into free agency. At the absolute most I would give him 3/30
He isn't a free agent until after next year
