The Angels haven’t had substantial trade talks in recent weeks, and GM Tony Reagins likes his club. The Angels are first in the AL West, six games ahead of the A’s.
The Angels rank 12th in OBP and 10th in SLG. This puts them 11th in the AL with 4.29 runs per game. Garret Anderson, Gary Matthews Jr., and Erick Aybar have not contributed offensively. You can let Aybar off the hook, but an upgrade at DH/LF would be nice. Fortunately Anderson and Matthews have shown flashes of competence, as their hefty contracts probably mean the Angels are stuck with them.
The Angels’ rotation looks great, and the bullpen is respectable.
