Monkey with a Halo:
Los Angeles Angels
Tampa Bay Rays
The Angels may or may not make a trade at the coming deadline (apologies to Barry Enright, but you don't really count). It looks like they will likely make a deal, but we can never know for sure because none of us are Jerry Dipoto and he may not even know if he will definitely make a trade because he is not psychic.
What we can attempt to do though is determine how everyone will react if the Halos to consummate a deal. While we don't know what JeDi has in mind, I'm pretty sure that spending several hours per day talking about potential trades with other people has given me a good read on how the masses of Angels fans will react if one of the hypothetical deals go down. Let's take a look at a few, shall we?
The optimistic Angels fan says, "Woohoo! Just hand us the World Series now!!! Suck it, Texas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
The pessimistic Angels fan says, "Oh, great. We just gutted our entire farm system so that Hamels can sign with the D...

Los Angeles caught lightning in a bottle with the addition of rookie Mike Trout earlier this season. Now the team will look to do the same with the addition of Jean Segura. Back in November, I ranked the rookie as the club’s fourth-best prospect entering the this season.
The middle infield prospect was promoted to the majors for the first time in his pro career after starting shortstop...
ANAHEIM, Calif. In the ever-changing state of the Angels pitching rotation, the only sure thing is Jered Weaver.
Everything else is in flux.
This was never more clear than Wednesday morning when manager Mike Scioscia announced that troubled right-hander Ervin Santana will not pitch Friday as expected and that it's possible Jerome Williams could start next week against the...
They are not words Los Angeles Angels fans are eager to hear. "We're not putting a specific date on it right now," manager Mike Scioscia said of outfielder Vernon Wells' imminent return. "But he's close, there's no doubt, and he's getting closer." Wells went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run Tuesday night in his fifth game on a rehab assignment...
Outfielder Torii Hunter turned 37 years old earlier this month, but he has been playing like a much younger man over the last six weeks. "I wouldn't say (Hunter looks) rejuvenated because I don't know that I've ever seen Torii really down," manager Mike Scioscia said. "There's a frustration factor with every player and Torii certainly has it when...
Mike DiGiovanna, Los Angeles Angels beat writer for Los Angeles Times, tweeted this afternoon that the Angels are looking for a left-handed relief pitcher and Jose Mijares of the Kansas City Royals is on their radar.
#Angels would like to add LH reliever. Among those they've expressed interest in are #Royals' Jose Mijares and #Cardinals' Marc Rzepczynski.
Baseball is always looking for its next big superstar(s). My generation has guys like Derek Jeter and Albert Pujols who carried baseball on its back but the new generation is looking for the next crop of superstars to brag to their grandchildren about one day. Along with Jeter and Pujols we have some other super athletes whose names deserve to be mentioned among...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Los Angeles slugger Albert Pujols was not in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Kansas City Royals, after getting hit on the right elbow by a pitch he swung at the previous night.
It was only the second time this season that the three-time NL MVP didn't start, either at first base or as the designated hitter.
Jered Weaver won his seventh straight start to tie a career-best, Mike Trout and Torii Hunter homered, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Kansas City Royals 11-6 victory Wednesday.
The Angels won the rubber game of the three-game series without slugger Albert Pujols, who missed his second game of the season because of a bruised right elbow.
Weaver (13-1) threw 101 pitches over...
In his first year as general manager of the Angels, Jerry Dipoto has proven to be aggressive and effective on the trade and free agency market. He's also shown that he is an ever-smiling fountain of energy and positivity. But underneath that facade, it turns out he is a cagey bastard who deftly uses his charm to give interview after interview of nothing but empty platitudes...

Angel publicist Irv Kaze knew it was Bo the moment he laid eyes on him—the swagger, the shades, and that slicked backed hair. Bo was easy to spot in a crowd, even at Los Angeles International Airport. It was Belinsky. Had to be. His reputation preceded him. For an entire month, the rookie pitcher had driven management crazy...
