This from good ol' Ken Rosenthal at FoxSports.com
"The way club officials see it, the possible emergence of Brandon Wood at third base could displace Chone Figgins, adding to the team's glut of outfielders and forcing Vladimir Guerrero to get more at-bats as a designated hitter."
If that doesn't clear anything up, I don't know what will. This seems in line with what Tony has been saying and we've all been discussing here... it's time to give the kids (mainly Wood and Morales) a legitimate shot to see what they can do.
If all goes well, my guess is that we'll see Wood at 3B, Figgy in LF, Rivera and Vlad in RF/DH, and GMJ riding the pine until someone needs a break.
So while it's frustrating for many Angel fans to watch some big-time sluggers sign for dirt cheap, this is clearly the better way to go in the long term.
Best case scenario? Kendry Morales provides Kotch-like numbers in his first full season (which I completely expect) and Woody becomes Longoria 2.0 and a cornerstone of our team for a long, long time.
