Found December 11, 2013 on We Talk Fantasy Sports:
The National League West did their best during Day 2 of the Winter Meetings, to compete with the Los Angeles Dodgers.  First the Arizona Diamondbacks traded for Mark Trumbo of the Los Angeles Angels, with the help of the Chicago White Sox.  Then the Colorado Rockies acquired Brett Anderson from the Oakland Athletics, a move that seems small, but could prove to be one of the best moves of the offseason.  When healthy, Anderson has proven to be a quality pitcher who can get guys out.  He is not a big strikeout pitcher but last season while pitching both in relief and as a starter, he managed to strike out 46 batters in 44.2 innings pitched. He now gets to enjoy run support from Carlos Gonzalez, Troy Tulowitzki, Michael Cuddyer and Justin Morneau, something he has never had in his 73 career starts before.  Day 3 should continue to bring tons of rumors and hopefully another move to shake up the league goes down today!

D-Backs Make Headlines While Angels, White Sox Make Gains

When Kevin Towers took over the Diamondbacks as general manager, one of the first things he did was make a trade.
