    I don’t think a trade for Trout makes sense for the Phillies, and I don’t think they even consider trading Able without getting a Major League Starting Pitcher back in return. I also don’t believe for a second that the Angels would be willing to trade away $135 Million Dollars in cash. I know the Mets stepped up this year and have done similar but I don’t think it’s set a precedent or is going to become common practice. This just seems unrealistic to me.

    As a former Angels fan, no way are we trading Trout for Abel and Rojas nor sending 135 million in cash.

    What that should tell you then is they aren’t trading Trout. The Angels are likely going to have to put a ton of cash in to get something valuable. Once Arte realizes that’s the case, that will be the end of trade discussions

    This might not be an exchange that Angels ownership would accept (Moreno has no sense of market value or aging curves) but it’s a perfectly rational proposal that offers the Halos some marginal return for Trout’s brand equity and peak-and-trough impact.

    Rojas offers the sort of top of the order speed the team could use post Trout/Ohtani, and Abel, while quite risky, is the sort of upside the Angels should be grasping after in young pitching.
