NOT a crazy trade idea.

But rather, a solicitation of one and an appeal to the communal wisdom of Angel's fandom.  Putting it nicely, I think that even the most diehard fan of our Halos can agree that this 2010 offseason has not proceeded as we progressed. However, as much maligned as the Ninja has been this offseason, I don't totally disagree with his statement that our returning players/FA signings (Kendry, Haren, Takahashi, Downs) will make a significant impact upon the 2011 squad.  Do I think that they will carry us above and beyond the Texas Rangers though? Not necessarily.  So that leaves us where? Screaming blindly about the wisdom of numbers offered to Adrian Beltre? Suggesting ludicrous trades to TB for Longoria (they wouldn't trad us his cap, much less Evan himself unless it was for our entire infield AND stadium rights)?  Although....the other Longoria.... ahem.....

I suggested earlier this offseason a potential trade for the inimitable Mark Reynolds.  I was both fairly applauded and fairly slammed for this suggestion (although my post failed to lure Rev Halofan or Suboptimal into posting).  So to get back to the original thread of this post..... what would YOU, the collective Halo fanbase suggest as a REASONABLE trade, not a pipe dream?  I ask this with the understanding that we cannot trade our perceived garbage for another team's diamond in the rough or star player.  There has been some speculation that the Ninja's bullpen moves are a precursor to a trade of our cheaper and younger bullpen components, plus either Premium or Naps. So again, within reason, where do you, Angel's fans, see our talent potentially going?

In all honesty, with the way bullpen pitching is valued, I see it more likely that we gauge how the Rangers progress  in the early part of this season, and  we are left as players for bullpen pitching at the deadline, unless we are 100% playing Robin Ventura to their Nolan Ryan.
