Howie Trade Idea


Recommended Posts

In the wake of the Callaspo/Green trade, I've been thinking of follow up trades the Angels can make to continue the rebuilding process.


One idea I thought of was a Howie Kendrick to the Cardinals trade. The Cardinals are a serious contender who need some work up the middle. I thought a Howie for Matt Adams trade is quite a possibility. The Cardinals would then move Matt Carpenter to 3rd base to make room for Howie and possibly sit or platoon Freese who has struggled mightily this season. 


Now this trade would give the Angels a surplus of 1st Base/DH type players.


Personally, I think Matt Adams has more potential than Trumbo and is 3 years younger which makes Trumbo a trade candidate. 


The Angels could then trade Trumbo to a team weak at 1st Base that is making a playoff push. 


For example: Trumbo to the Pirates in a deal centered around pitching prospect Jameson Taillon or to the Dbacks (Trumbo would play outfield and back up Goldy) for a deal centered around Skaggs (Dipoto loves his ex-players).


These moves would surprisingly give the Angels a fairly competetive team while rebuilding at the same time.


This would give the Angels a 2014 line-up of:

Bourjos (CF)

Trout (LF)

Pujols (DH)

Hammy (RF)

Adams (1B) 

Lucho (3B)

Green (2B)

Aybar (SS)


2014 Rotation:




Hanson/Richards (If the Angels tender him a contract)

Richards/Skaggs (Taillon is fairly young and would be in the minors at least the beginning of the season)
