If your last name is Gretzky or Scioscia in Los Angeles, sports fans will recount days of hockey and baseball greatness in Tinsel Town in the late 1980s and early 1990s.  In addition to Lakers Show Time success, there were good hockey and baseball in town and many remember Wayne Gretzky (Los Angeles Kings, NHL Western Conference Champions 1993) and Mike Scioscia (Los Angeles Dodgers, MLB Champions 1988).  Today’s headlines featured their sons, Trevor Gretzky and Matt Scioscia swapped to the Angels and Cubs respectively.  Los Angeles Angels MLB.com beat writer Alden Gonzalez tweeted the historic (if not impactful) trade: #Angels have just traded Mike Scioscia’s son (Matt, a 1B) to the #Cubs for Wayne Gretzky’s son (Trevor, an OF). — Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) March 20, 2014 To be honest, both are 2011 draft picks, and neither has made a significant rise within their organization to be considered prospects.  That being said, the Angels dealing the son of their manager seems a bit curious, one would think they might keep him in camp just out of courtesy.  One would be wrong. - David Whitlock Related Articles: REPORT: Angels poised to change management in 2014 WATCH: New MLB Replay Rules Put to Test Be sure to like our Facebook Page Check out Sports-Kings YouTube Channel Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post Angels and Cubs trade sons of Los Angeles sports legends Scioscia and Gretzky appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
