Ken Rosenthal weighs in on the Angels’ offense today, speculating about a Ken Griffey Jr. acquisition. Other ideas for that "big bat": Miguel Cabrera, Morgan Ensberg, Garrett Atkins, Troy Glaus, Adam Dunn, Pat Burrell, or Mark Teahen. None seem likely and many seem foolish. Can you really see Stoneman making a major acquisition? I feel a GM Trade Profile coming on, once I finish Omar’s.
The Halos are fifth in the AL in OBP and eighth in slugging; it’s not like they’re the Twins. Still, as Rosenthal says, one more slugger could make them World Series favorites. You can think of a million reasons why a Barry Bonds trade would never happen, but he would boost the offense immensely. Other ideas: Carlos Pena or Dmitri Young.
