Shane Victorino fell for obvious Oregon April Fools joke

Either Shane Victorino is extremely gullible or he has one wicked sense of humor.

Angels acquire Shane Victorino from the Red Sox

By Liam McGuire. We have a trade. According to Fox Sports Jon Morosi, the Los Angeles Angels acquired outfielder Shane Victorino from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for infielder Josh Rutledge and cash.
