So I'm driving through the horrible traffic of LA thinking about the mediocre offseason the Angels have been having and it all hit me. I know exactly what to do to get the Angels back in place. First, we sign Cliff Lee to a 7yr/161 million deal with a partial no-trade clause that doesn't include the Yankees. Next, we trade him to the Yankees. That's right I said it to the YANKEES. For who you may ask? I just want two people and it is Robinson Cano and their catching prospect Jesus Montero. After that is done, more trading is going to happen. We will trade Erick Aybar, Mike Napoli, Howie Kendrick, Juan Rivera and pitching prospect Tyler Chatwood for........................Jose Reyes and David Wright. Bet you didn't see that coming. Reyes fills in for our leadoff spot. Another scrappy type hitter that Mike loves. And because he won't be in the massive stadium of Citi Field, Wright will have his power back. The next thing is to sign Jim Thome to a 1 year contract to get some pop at our DH position. So this is my 2011 Angels lineup:
C Jesus Montero/Hank Conger (Mike will have to choose on this one)
Now isn't this a great lineup!! ;) I told you crazy right. Alright now you can start telling me a bunch of crap about how stupid my plan is but whatever, it be a bad ass Angel lineup!
