  • Trade: Zach Greinke to Angels

    One of the trade deadline's major chips has switched teams, as the Angels have acquired Zack Greinke in a trade with the Brewers. Milwaukee will receive top infield prospect Jean Segura and Double-A right-handers Ariel Pena and John Hellweg in exchange for their ace.

      Yeah that is one stacked team. I can't see the Rangers beating them out at this point.

            We'll see how Greinke handles a big media market like the Los Angeles area.

              If his alledged anxiety is any indication, it'll flare up like crazy and he'll wilt. There's going to be a hell of a lot of pressure for him to help lead the Angels staff to the AL West title and beyond.

                Weaver, Greinke, Wilson & Haren is as good as any 1-4 for an October run. Angels parted with what could be a decent SS, but this gets them an inside shot to the postseason IMO.

                  I wouldn't wish anxiety problems on anyone, but I can't say I'm rooting for him to succeed either, as I really want this to be the Rangers' year. I can only hope that Greinke is OK mentally but that his production isn't enough to help the Angels win the division.

                    I wouldn't mind seeing the Rangers win just not this weekend while the Sox are in town.

                      You know what is scary? The Angels have nearly $53 million in salary coming off the books after this season. Based on the the structure of the deals they handed out to Wilson and Pujols, you can see the method behind their madness. Both of their salaries jump in Vernon Wells final year on the books.

                        That $53 million was excluding Greinke's $13.5 million.

                            Jeez that is pretty scary, You have to wonder what there gonna do next. I gotta hand it to the Angels though they really have done a good job of selling baseball in LA area. I suppose LA will always be a Dodger town but maybe not as much anymore. Since California seems to have alot of transplants i'm guessing there have bee alot of fans jumping over to the Angels out there.

                              The current Ranger team is a really likable bunch and I'm still devastated that they didn't win it last year. They need to win it while this core is still together.
