Trout Sweepstakes (Let the Speculation Begin)

Recommended Posts

The Globe had an article speculating on what 10 teams could afford a trade for Trout if the Angels elected to go that route.  There are not any rumors the Angels are inclined to trade Trout (yet).  The article speculates the Angels farm system is so bare that trading Trout for several prospects will help kick start their rebuild.  Of course, they still owe Albert Pujols 140 million from 2017-2020 which is not helping a rebuild.

The typical names were mentioned, Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, Mets and Sox.

As far as the Sox, it would be nice to have Trout, but I do not want them to gut their young corps they have now.

Sox don't need him unless he's a starting pitcher. They have Betts, Bradley, and lots of young guns in the outfield under much cheaper contracts. Trout is really good, but I don't see the point.

The team that gets him will probably have to swim upstream.

They do not need him, but do they want him...or more importantly does Dombrowski?

If the Angels starts any discussion with Bogaerts...Dombrowowski should shut him down and end the conversation.

I am good with there current starters, but we have Bientendi now at AA and Castillo.  Plus, Swihart who is not supplanting Vazquez and cannot seem himn bumping an OF.

Use some of the pieces they have that are blocked at the major league level and try to get Trout who has power and is not even 25.  His lowest OPS against the AL East is .875 at Toronto.

I just can't believe that Anaheim would trade him to the Dodgers. There are some lines you do not cross and I don't think they'd do that.

Don't think anyone should be counting the Mets in for this either. These all-in trades are not Alderson's style.

If The Sox can get him without giving up Xander, JBJ, Mookie, ERod, Shaw, etc. then that's fine. I wouldn't give up anyone at the major league level right now for him. He's a luxury they don't need. They need pitching.

Trout is a Marlin. You heard it here first.

He is thinking of becoming a two sport star and will also play for the Dolphins.

If he actually became available I think the Cubs would be the leaders, legitimately. He's got that mid-western personality where he doesn't ask for the spotlight, something I think works for the Cubs and Wrigley. Yep....that's what I'm going with.

He loved the Phillies growing up, and the Phillies have the need and the money.

Not saying a trade would happen, but Philly makes the most sense
