Is Reagins willing to trade Adenhart?

Well, according to Joel Sherman, he is.

"The wild card with Teixeira and, especially, Holliday is the Angels, who need a big bat and have hinted at a willingness to build a deal around pitching prospect Nick Adenhart."

While the thought of it is interesting, I don't know that I agree with the sentiment, especially when it involves Tex or Holliday. Both are great players but seem unlikely to appear in Halos' red.

Kotchman is too valuable to kick out. It's as simple as that. I have a hard time believing that Reagins would be willing to move Kotch in order to get Tex, though Mark would be a great asset to this team.

Holliday is an intriguing idea, but one that seems a bit far-fetched. The Rockies (or somebody else) would have to be willing tot ake on GMJ and part of his contract for this move to even begin to make some sense. Without that, Holliday won't be here, either.

So then, who is valuable enough to us that we are willing to trade Adenhart? It's all speculation as of now. I would have to argue, as I have before, that we need a young, powerful guy to complement the veterans we currently field. I'm talking about guys like Sizemore, Uggla, Howard, Fielder, Braun, etc. Nick Adenhart, though struggling mightly this year, is not a pitcher that we should be willing to just throw away. It's obvious, by the comments above, that teams are not afraid of his subpar year and still see the great potential that Adenhart has.

So who are the players we would be willing to trade Adenhart for?
