The Angels are in need of desperate help in the outfield. With Abreu and Hunter approaching thier late 30's and questions surrounding Peter Bourjos, the angels should consider trading for Grady Sizemore. Yes, Sizemore is most likely the best player on the Indians and is the face of the franchise, but for the right trade, the Indians might consider dealing the 5-tool player to Anaheim. Sizemore would not only improve our lack luster defense, but he would provide a wonderful bat at the top of the lineup. Sizemore would have an astronomical impact on the angels (assuming he stays healthy) and could catapult the Angels to the top of the AL west. Some possible trade packages for Sizemore could possibly look something like this:
Sizemore for Ervin Santana (probably never going to happen)
Sizemore for Reggie Willits, Peter Bourjos and Izturis.
Sizemore for Mike Napoli and Brandon Wood with possibly another mid level player in their such as Willits.
Sizemore for Jeff Mathis (assuming any logical team would take him), Pineiro and Reckling.
The Angels have the players to make a signifigant run at Sizemore. Assuming Tony Reagins will get rid of them, unlike he did with Brandon Wood. Its simple, call up Cleveland and ask what they want. The Indians are a franchise in need of starting pitching help and infield help. Two things that the angels are overloaded with.
This trade could be a win win for both sides.
Would Sizemore immediately make the Angels favoites in the AL West
