Jason Evans of halohangout.com asks "Should the Angels Go After R.A. Dickey"
He goes on to suggest a trade of Dickey for Mark Trumbo, Hank Conger and Michael Kohn, saying we should try Trumbo in the outfield. My first reaction was to reject it outright because I thought "we don't need another first baseman fumbling around in the outfield", Conger hasn't shown anything yet and Kohn is coming off TJ surgery.
On second thought, however, I concluded that it might be a major opportunity for the Mets. Trumbo is certainly a first rate first baseman. I wonder if the Marlins might consider a deal involving Trumbo as the main attraction. Like
Trumbo, Familia, Den Dekker, Tapia, Marte and Ceciliani for Giancarlo Stanton oops, did I say Giovanni? My bad.
Putting Trumbo at 1B would allow them to get Logan Morrison back in the outfield. Familia could either start or fill out their pen. And the others could help them further strengthen their farm system, since they are going to have great difficulty attracting free agents over the next several years. Hmmmmm I wonder.
