LA Times: Angels lineup could have paired Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera

Recommended Posts

Angels tried to swing a trade with the Marlins for Cabrera in 2007 but a deal wasn't reached. Had it panned out, the Trout-Cabrera tandem would have been a force. <br/><br/>As Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout lay the foundation for another spirited race for American League most valuable player, imagine how frightened pitchers might be if Cabrera followed Trout in the lineup.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/latimes/sports/baseball/mlb/angels/~4/wxog7OAE4gk" height="1" width="1"/>

Trout dropped all the way to 25th.. So many teams are kicking themselves in the head and play the what if game... Just be glad that the Angels drafted Mike Trout.. Years from now, they will have a 30 for 30 on why so many teams didn't draft trout, kind of like in the nfl 83 draft in why so many teams didn't draft Dan Marino when they could had.

If they only had their 1st round pick they'd have taken Trout and passed on Grichuk. We've had quotes from Eddie Bane, etc about how Trout was their guy.


Yeah, but a whole mess of variables could have been in play if we had Cabrera and were looking for something else as a result or perhaps another team's draft analysis and priorities differed on the basis of what happened as a result of Cabrera being on the Angels and how that changes everything else.


All we know is that as things happened, we got Trout.
