Angels Prefer To Avoid First Base Rental?

The Angels are still looking for offensive help, tweets ESPN's Jayson Stark, but one team he spoke to says they're not going to rent a first baseman for two months.  This runs counter to Ken Rosenthal's July 10th report that the Halos are "looking only at rentals" at first base since Kendry Morales will be back in 2011.  Rosenthal wrote eleven days later that the Angels had discussed Jorge Cantu and Adam LaRoche.

Could both reporters be correct?  Perhaps, if the Angels are quietly seeking to upgrade over an incumbent such as Howie Kendrick or Bobby Abreu.  But we haven't heard anything like that.
