Would the Diamondbacks take a package with Trumbo and Conger? Or, Do we have enough in the lower levels to do a package including Trumbo and some A-short season A prospects?


We as a group tend to overvalue and undervalue our players.

Could a package of a few on both teams help both?

Angels:
Trumbo
Conger
Lindsey
Grichuck
PB

D-Backs:
Upton
Bauer - If the reports are true?
Cahill

Now this isn't a proposed trade. I'm wondering of available players.

They want a SS. Aybar would definitely need to be included.

Upton? Under contract for 3 more years, I'd say it'd cost the Angels Bourjos (to replace him in CF), Cowart as their future 3B and a pitcher, just because you can never have enough of those, so Maronde.

By the way, no way I pay Bourjos, Cowart and Maronde for Upton. We aren't that desperate for an OF, so pass.

I'm just looking at the lineup and the future. Not completely sold on Trumbo. But, that doesn't make me think he wouldn't have a great career in the NL.

Dipoto knows their system and players. Upton has been reportedly placed on the block and a lineup including Trout, Upton, Cowart, Cron and an aging Pujols in the future makes me wonder that's all.

It's been stated over the last few days on MLB Network. During the Meetings here in Palm Springs.

you need a link to tell you its not a good thing that someone with so much raw talent would even be available?
besides, were not exactly in need of an OF
how about looking at a 3B or something we actually need?

So, then why did you ask for a LINK?

It was my question? I never said the Halos were in talks.

Actually, the Diamondbacks have a strong farm system. And may be looking to keep payroll low. They dealt Young to Oakland and Upton has 14M salaries coming up.

As Scotty already pointed out, Upton would cost more than he is really worth. He's a good player, but I would much rather the Angels keep their few really good prospects and have Trumbo in the OF.

I'd be willing to trade Bourjos, Richards and a minor leaguer not named Kaleb Cowart. Then hopefully get rid of Wells and sign Grienke, though non of this is likely.

CF Trout
RF Upton
1B Pujols
DH Morales
LF Trumbo
3B Callaspo?
2B Kendrick
C Iannetta
SS Aybar

No way in hell this happens, but Trout and Upton back-to-back in the lineup would be SICK.

No way the Angels should go after Upton. They'd have to give up their top pitching prospect, their top hitting prospect and probably a major league piece like Bourjos or Trumbo.
