    Wouldn't get it done. Just because they're ranked in the top 13 in the Angels' org doesn't mean they're the equivalent of those rankings in other orgs.
    It absolutely would require Adell, and possibly Walsh on a sell-high basis.

    I think a lot of people, myself included, have realized that Adell is a prospect.  For the last couple years I wrongly had it in my head that he was going to be this sure fire elite player which isn't fair really.  Like a Fernando Tatis Jr or a Ron Acuna jr.  or some other jr.  (had to throw that in).  
    He might be at some point but his brief stint in the majors this year makes me think that point is further off in the distance that I originally realized.  
    So for me, it reset my expectations of him from some 'can't miss' guy back to just a really really good prospect.  Which is what he's always been
    There's a difference between doing a 180 on someone vs. tempering expectations from being untouchable.  So now he becomes the most valuable piece in this org to help the team get where they need to be whether that's eventually on the field with the halos or with someone else.  
    An unwillingness to trade him and thinking we can get a controlled top of the rotation starter without his inclusion is way more AW like than being realistic about the fact that it will likely take him and others to get that front line pitcher.  
    So in some ways, we're actually growing.

    Everybody would like to have Snell.  And everybody would like to keep Adell.
    I am not sure what people are thinking if they think Tampa would make a deal that doesn’t include Adell.
    If Adell is too much to pay for a 27 year old front line starter with three more years of very affordable control, then what pitcher are you seriously thinking you are going to get for Adell?
    Given the make up of the current Angel roster, the next three years is very, very important.
    It is more important, by far, to have a Snell for the next three years than it is to have an Adell.
    Yes he might end up a superstar.  And he might also end up being a glorified Cameron Maybin.  We don’t know, and you just gotta be comfortable with the range of possible outcomes on Adell, just as you have be comfortable with the range of outcomes with Snell (a couple of CY awards/lead the Angels to a ring, or TJ surgery three months into 2021).
    Both teams have to believe they have the upside they need for their situation.
    I dig having all the excitement of such a great prospect, but in the end he is a resource the team needs to use as best it can to create a winning mlb roster.
    It is very reasonable to conclude that the best way to use this resource is to acquire a guy like Snell.

    The question posed was you have to delete an item from that list. Instead you told us what you are cooking that day and for breakfast.
    I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I don't see how that correlates.
    Even if one used some deductive skills you still have rolls, Mac and cheese, and stuffing there that weren't mentioned.

    I get what you are saying but at the same time guys with 5 years of control are much less of a sure thing than Snell.
