Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Angels fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

As the trade deadline approaches, fans of teams in contention hope that they get upgrades to make a push for the postseason. Every year, starting pitching is greatly coveted. Trevor Bauer, despite his obsession with Twitter, was voted the starter a fan would give up the most for. He has a 3.65 ERA and has hit a majors-high 14 batters.

Bauer got 35% of the vote, while Madison Bumgarner, Marcus Stroman, Matthew Boyd, and Zack Wheeler trailed in that order.
