Just yesterday news broke that the Jeremy Hellickson of the Tampa Bay Rays was drawing trade interest from multiple teams. I have to imagine that Jerry Dipoto has at least kicked the tires on Hellickson, this type of move falls all too well into Dipoto's method of operation. Aside from the massive Pujols contract Dipoto is very conservative when it comes to giving out big contracts and will only do so if necessary, as we will likely see with Greinke later this offseason. It fits Dipoto much better to trade for a young dynamic player like Hellickson, a player that is very cost-friendly while being under team control until 2017. So far it sounds like he fits the bill nicely since he would give the Angels that strong #3 pitcher they desperately need. That is only if the Angels don't resign Greinke, if they did he would slot into the 4 spot with C.J Wilson just in front of him. How sweet does that rotation sound? Weaver, Greinke, Wilson, Hellickson, Richards. That rotation comes off better
