Pete for David, another head scratcher? Please make a trade when the other player is not on his downward slide.

The reasoning of "He can hit big when we need it" is the exact same one they used when they brought in Albert. It's like the front office is watching youtube highlight reels of players before signing..this is getting so repetitive.

D-Backs To Acquire Trumbo In Three-Team Trade With Angels, White Sox
Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs are headed to the Angels
Big Mistake, Fire Jerry Depoto

That 4-9 record Santiago has sure looks like gold and Skaggs is still unproven. Nice trade Depoto.

Love the move by the D-Backs!

The Official Angels 2013-2014 Offseason Thread
Arte needs to sell the team - Why? He's strapped the club with stupid contract (Gary Matthews jr., Vernon Wells, Albert Puljos, and Hamilton) and us trading away all the young talent - Segura-Borgeous-now Trumbo.
Freaking Stupid Arte...

What a waste and the Angels are not going to improve anytime soon. Wake me up when I start to care about the team again

I actually don't mind the trade too much. While Trumbo didn't *have* to leave, you guys need to realize that the Angels should be more than fine if Pujols and Hamiltion ever return to form. Plus we still got Trout, Calhoun and Kendrick. Don't forget Freese either.
Weaver, Wilson, Richards is our Top 3. Hopefully Skaggs is ready for the big leagues. I don't know about Santiago though.. but I'm sure DiPoto isn't finished.
Regardless, he'll either look like a genius here or he'll get fired anyway. I don't think it matters much to him.
They still need to get rid of Scioscia. But as for Trumbo getting shipped to the DBacks, at least it's in the NL West. Best of luck to him.
