Looking at the Angels trade chips for the deadline

We spend so much time combing through the rumors mill looking for players that the Angels can acquire at the trade deadline, but seldom ever do we fans actually think about what our team has to offer.  This is a problem not unique to the Angels, just about every fan base is guilty of it and why we see so many stupid fan trade proposals out there (Castro and Garza for Trout, really...

Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout, New York Yankees' Robinson Cano Favored to Win AL MVP

Only two players in Major League Baseball history have won both the Rookie of the Year and MVP awards in the same season.
