Hard to believe they won't do something - Angels Unplugged - Los Angeles Times
This is a time to be aggressive, not passive. If the Angels wind up doing nothing, you have to ask where they were when the Indians dealt Lee, the 2007 Cy Young Award winner, for four players, none of whom ever had played in the majors before. And what about the Sherrill deal? The Dodgers got the proven lefty reliever for two prospects, neither of whom is ranked among their top seven by Baseball America. You mean Reagins and Scioscia couldn't have come up with a better package than that?
