    Angels are officially out of the playoffs for the 8th straight year. Why? Because they are an awful team built around a few super stars.

    This trade sends the Angels’ catcher of the future to the Rays for a middle infielder with good defense, speed and hit tool. Edwards lacks power but that’s something the Angels have in abundance. Angels also receive J.Springs who has pitched like a #2-3 starter all year for the Rays. He’s under control for 2 more years and probably won’t cost more than $2MM next year. That’s key for the Angels because they have a lot of holes to fill.

    The Angels get better by trading Trout and Ohtani in separate package deals. Not this deal.

      Yeah, but this trade is premised on keeping Trout and maybe even Ohtani.

    This proposal is a real (desparate) stretch. The halos are not going to trade O’Hoppe for a 29 y.o. reliever and an infielder who most likely will be a utility player.

    They moved highly regarded centerfielder Marsh for O’Hoppe. Rays would have to match that type of quality for the Angels to even pick up the phone.

    O’Hoppe is the type of catcher that the Halos need. Why would they trade him to the Rays for a very sub-standard package?

      BTV has Springs categorized wrong. He’s a 2-3 fWAR starting pitcher right now.

    • M P

      That may be, but if they are assembling a roster for the 2024 season on, they might as well trade Ohtani. He won’t be an Angel in 2024.
