Thatcher to Angels

Recommended Posts

That would be an absolutely pointless trade. The Angels have more than enough OF depth (unless Cowgill or Calhoun are being traded for something else) and giving up Jepsen for Thatcher is just stupid. As much as I rag on Jeppy, he has been good this year. They need to add to the solid pieces in the pen, not replace one of them.

This really doesn't make sense to me. Campana is a singles/doubles hitter that doesn't really add value to the team (unless there was a trade for another OF planned) and Thatcher is a relatively cheap rental at about $1.3MM.


Jepsen has been doing well this season (and it pains me to admit that) and it would seem counter-productive to move him for another bullpen piece.


Just seems odd unless there is some greater trade at work.

They cannot go into the second half without a viable lefty in the pen and if they add one then one of the current group will be sent out or down. Might as well trade Jepsen while he's a hot commodity.


DFA Rich Hill. There's your spot for Thatcher or whoever.


No need to deal Jepsen for a LOOGY. Kind of defeats the purpose of dealing for that LOOGY.
