The November 3rd, 2011 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim including Jerry DiPoto is more interested in making trades than signing free agents, DiPoto turned down the Baltimore Orioles general manager job before joining the Angels, no Halos won Silver Slugger awards and much more...

The Story: Jerry DiPoto strongly suggests that he is going to be more interested in making trades than spending big in free agency.

The Monkey Says: This is definitely a much different front office proclamation than the infamous "big splash" promise of last off-season.  It also isn't a big surprise since it is clear that the Angels don't have much money to spend in free agency anyway, so I think this is less about DiPoto promising trades and more about him trying to prep the fans for them to be fairly inactive in free agency.

The Story: Jerry DiPoto removed his name from consideration for the Orioles general manager job despite being their known top choice.

The Monkey Says: Yeah, for all the bluster about the Halos job maybe not being desirable, the O's job is clearly pure repellent right now.

The Story: The 2011 Silver Sluggers were announced, and zero Angels won.

The Monkey Says: This is clearly an unseemly travesty of epic proportions.  I am appalled!  Appalled I say!!!

The Story: Former Angel pitcher Mickey Scott passed away at the age of 64.

The Monkey Says: Condolences to his family.

The Story: The memorial for former Angel Ricky Adams will be held this Friday.

The Monkey Says: This turned out to be a pretty dour edition of the Halo Headlines.
