Rosenthal: Dur... Angels should go after Teixeira ...durr

This guy cracks me up.  It's pretty obvious to even a casual baseball fan that the Angels, while having a solid roster,  could use a big bat to push them over to proverbial hump (Bawston).  I said "could use" because while it's not a bad idea to have an extra 30+ HR's, I personally think we can get to the series with the team we have right now, barring injuries and some players slumping.

Here's the main offender for me in this article:

"Their first baseman, Casey Kotchman, is statistically comparable to Teixeira this season, and just as strong a defender. But Kotchman, who has hit only one homer since April 23, is not the same type of impact player as Teixeira -- and lest anyone forget, Angels owner Arte Moreno likes his stars.

If the opportunity arose, the Angels could include Kotchman in a Teixeira deal, or send him to another club in a separate trade. If Teixeira then departed as a free agent, the team could collect two draft picks and install Kendry Morales at first base next season."

Statistically comparable and just as strong as a defender. To me, that's pretty much where the argument should end. I am no fan of Rosenthal, so maybe that and my love of Kotchman is coming into play, but are there any fans that think that a move like that would be anything other than stupid?
