Steve Dilbeck: Smart Dude

His column in today's Daily News pretty much sums up my feelings.

Do nothing. Well, at least nothing so significant it will cost you a prized prospect to nail down a star player for three months.

Alfonso Soriano, Bobby Abreu, Carlos Lee, Miguel Tejada and the like are all very tempting. Would surely make an impact on this season.

But if the cost is an Ervin Santana or Jered Weaver or Mike Napoli, forget it. If renting a star means relinquishing a significant chunk of the future, take a pass

...snip...

The Angels need helpon the corners. Maybe they pursue a Jeff Conine or a Joe Randa, or if the cost is not too high, aim higher for a Sean Casey or a Shea Hillenbrand. Even a Craig Wilson would help.

Then when the season is over, and their contract expired, you can let them go knowing you did not mortgage your future. Maybe even re-sign them on the cheap.

I'll echo that.  I'm happy with going with what they've got, and possibly dealing Kennedy.  But at this point, at be satisfied if they came up a little short but held on to their top prospects.
