Rangers Acquire Jorge Cantu

They give up two AA pitchers. One of whom is on the DL recovering from Tommy John Surgery. Marlins look to be paying most of his salary.

We'll miss you Joe. Thanks for giving your all for us silly fans. You'll do great over there in...

We'll miss you Joe. Thanks for giving your all for us silly fans. You'll do great over there in the NL. Have a good start Thursday and throw a No-No when you see the Dodgers! (Just wanted to post something in tribute since none of YOU navel-gazing ingrates did...)

Trades Have Consequences: Now Starting for Salt Lake, Ryan Vogelsong

Acquiring Haren was a coup. Acquiring Callaspo was a shrewd move with potentially long term benefit, BUT... This stuff has consequences. Like journeyman Vogelsong now just an injury or two away from starting for our Angels. Vogelsong had a solid 2005 season with the Pirates as a middle reliever and swingman, but stunk up something awful in 2006 and pitched the next three years in Japan. He received an invite to spring training with the Phillies this season, didn't make the club, but missed a lot of bats for their AAA affiliate through June before getting the axe. The K's point to good stuff, but he'll have to do a better job finding the strikezone if he's going to help the Bees bust out of their rut of mediocrity.

WEDNESDAY LINEUP

12:35 PM start: No Torii, No Rivera, No Wood

Angels 2010 37th round pick, Tagen Struhs.

From drug addict to prospect to the Major Leagues? This could one day be the story of Tagen Struhs, one of the Angels 2010 draft picks. I won't even attempt to steal the thunder from the article, but the drafting of Struhs not only conjours memories of Josh Hamilton's ongoing struggle with substance abuse, but also of former Angels farmhand and current Chicago White Sox closer Bobby Jenks. Struhs has yet to sign a contract with the Angels and is currently working towards his GED. The 1134th overall pick doesn't often make the major leagues, but I have to root for this guy on his way to recovery alongside the long and lonely road through Arizona, Utah, Iowa, and the other stops on the way to Anaheim.

Filed Under: Things Could Be Worse

Wow. Remember when the Seattle Mariners were the Number 6 organization in all of baseball? Remember how that title was "earned", in large part, on the "strength" of their front office? If so, you should read this scathing blog article by Seattle Times reporter Geoff Baker. He highlights internal rifts, dispells the myth that the Ms are a "Sabermetric-driven" organization, rips Chone Figgins and throws the vaunted Jack Zduriencik in front of the bus - as it's moving. Enjoy!
