Here is what I think is an interesting trade idea...

Many of us are sure that the Angels will be looking for an upgrade in left field. Although many think it'll be Carl Crawford through free agency, what if The Angels who are almost certain to be looking to move RF/LF Juan Rivera, who lets face it is having a real bad year, and Mike Napoli, who is having one of his better offensive years. With Napoli's perceived value almost certainly giving him a raise this off season might put him at about 5 million dollars a year. Rivera I believe is making about 5 million next year. But if the Angels were to trade that 10M away for the Dodger's RF/LF Andre Ethier to play Left in Anaheim, wouldn't they be killing half a dozen birds with that one stone? Upgrading Offense and Defense in Left Field, moving Rivera... too costly to be a 4th Outfielder for the Halos and Napoli... blocking Conger/Wilson behind the plate. And its a win for the Dodgers as well. If the Dodgers are interested in a new catcher behind the plate with Martin's injury problems or having Napoli play some first. Rivera could switch to Right Field, which is where I believe he is more comfortable playing. The Dodgers save 5M off the payroll, which means they can probably make some more cost saving moves with more flexibility. Napoli and Rivera to the Dodgers for Andre Ethier???
