Love the deadline. From about 9-1 I post up in front of my TV and just watch everything unfold.

Don't be surprised if the Angels try to one-up the Dodgers and steal Pence or Victorino.

Don't be surprised if the Angels try to one-up the Dodgers and steal Pence or Victorino.


The Los Angeles Angels made their big move Friday, acquiring right-hander Zack Greinke from the Milwaukee Brewers for shortstop Jean Segura and two minor-league pitchers.

At the time, the team also was exploring the trade market for relievers, according to major-league sources. But general manager Jerry Dipoto acknowledged Sunday that the Angels likely would make no further moves before Tuesday’s non-waiver deadline at 4 p.m. ET.

“That’s pretty accurate,” Dipoto said. “If we’re to do anything else, it would come under the guise of ‘creative.’ We don’t want to dig any deeper into our system. That (the trade with the Brewers) was a painful give.

“I’ve had discussions internally and with other GMs about this. We have a 25-man roster we like. Anybody else we bring on will cost us somebody. (Beyond) the player-acquisition cost, we would have to move someone off the 25-man roster. There is not a lot of room to do that without losing someone who plays a key role on the club.”


They could still do something but they have spent a lot of money this past season and don't want to give up prospects. They could add another bat though, but not sure if they want to pay the price.

^ umm Chicano no way they have a crowded outfield. They're not gonna pay Vernon Wells to rot on the bench. They can maybe pick up an infielder but thats about it

Lol, I was kidding guys, but sorry, my bad. But honestly, do you want Ervin Santana or Vernon Wells? You can have them for free. Good grief.

I really wanted the Dodgers to go after & get Matt Garza, but after hearing a lot of alarming reports about him recently, I've backed off that stance mightily.

Yeah they found some fluid in his arm, not a good deal.

I thought the Dodgers were going to end up with him but after the injury stuff, not happening now.

May not be a bad thing. Stephen Fife looks good and Ted Lilly is coming back. Its like we picked up another starter. Im just worried about the middle relievers in the bullpen, Guerra and Belisario have been very unimpressive

They can have victorino, great fielder but at best average hitter.

All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

There was a report that Pence was traded to the Giants. That it was pending Giants ownership.
It was shut down:" Giants VP Bobby Evans texts that there's "no truth to the rumor" the Giants have a deal in place for Pence."

Still dont want him going to the Giants.

Are you guys still looking for a 3rd baseman? If so, Chase Headley may be a name your going to hear.

KOBE. #VINO. BRYANT.

We got Hanley Ramirez we're good at 3B lol we need 1 more starter, a power hitting 1B and one more reliever. This team is still top heavy. I dont know if Luis Cruz can keep this up at SS, Elian Herrera looked solid for a month and them flamed out

Just read the Dodgers could have interest in Beckett. Not sure I want that guy on the team after his last couple of seasons off the field issues.

Also, I wonder if the Dodgers might look towards first base for a bat. I forgot that we signed Puig, who could be ready next season already. He might be the LF of the future so it may not make sense to get Pence, especially giving up prospects for a player at a position where a future player is already to take

@Ken_Rosenthal
Source: Soriano remains part of discussions between #Dodgers and #Cubs involving Dempster.


Soriano is having a pretty good year this year. If they can get both him and Dempster in a deal, they could look to add a first baseman.

If they do that AND get Morneau:

Mark Ellis
Andre Ethier
Matt Kemp
Hanley Ramirez
Justin Morneau
A. Soriano
Cruz
AJ Ellis



Yikes

From what I've just read. The Dodgers are out on Morneao. Since the Twins want a pitcher who is major league ready. Also Dodgers not interested in Cliff Lee.

And Ken Rosenthal is reporting that talks between the Dodgers and Cubs are gaining momentum. I'd like to see Soriano in this deal for Dempster.
