Pederson/Stripling deal is DEAD. MOVE ON.

On further thought, I think its a combination of the 2nd and 3rd options. Pederson starts the year in RF. If/when Adell is ready, he pushes Pujols to the bench. By year's end we have the following lineup:

2B Fletcher

CF Trout

3B Rendon

1B Pederson

DH Ohtani/Upton

LF Upton/Marsh

RF Adell

SS Simmons

C Castro

 

They tried Joc at 1B last year and he was embarrassingly bad.

Because you added a really good player who would have been our 2nd best player last year and that can also be traded at the deadline.  

If Rengifo had enough value to get Peterson could he not have been packaged for a decent pitcher?

I think the bottom line is that there is no place for Rengifo on the 2020 team, and the  Angels presumably have some faith in Jahmai Jones so none in 2021 or beyond. Joc Pederson is a very good hitter who improves the team in 2020. If Adell is ready, they can shuffle things between LF (Upton will inevitably  get injured), 1B (Pujols is bad), and DH (the one-third of the  year that Ohtani doesn't start).

I’m going to need to see more of a history of Upton getting hurt to believe he will inevitably get injured.  Before 2019 he had played in 145 games or more for 9 straight years.

Sure, but he's getting up there, ya know?

Go back to caressing your Hamilton tickets.

You can be pretty patronizing, ya know?

Sorry, I didn’t mean to be, it just seems incredibly obvious that the GM of a major league team would try to trade for a position of need before he traded for a position of strength.

I don't get this trade if Pederson isn't flipped.  Team controlled player in Rengifo drawing from infield surplus for one year of a lefty corner outfielder we don't need when Adell is knocking on the door and Goodwin, who is a lefty,  is holding down RF.   Does this mean Simba gets an extension now?

I’ll go with 2....Actually, @Stradling is ok...I usually agree with him....

Thanks man.  I truly didn’t mean to talk down to you.  There are a few I have no issues talking down to, you aren’t them.  You are a normal, reasonable person.
