    Anyone else think that the Angels are shaping to be a damn good ball club? Still can't believe they got Hamilton.

    This was a great trade for the Angels. They badly needed a 3rd starter and this fulfills that need, at the cost of streaky, injury prone power hitter (they surely didn't need another power hitting 1B).

    win win

    like this deal for the mariners; vargas has a >5 road era and with the fences moving in left, the soft-tossing flyball lefty is likely to suffer where in the past, he flourished. Morales looks to have a solid floor, and an excellent ceiling. he has holes in his swing, but he finished 2012 very strong.

    As long as the M's also sign a free agent starter ( the deal nets them 3 mil ) to replace vargas, they stand to do very well. there was lots of noise about perhaps making a move on swisher, but never thought that made sense ( would have cost them their 1st rd pick, #12 overall ), and now i think that option is dead. in fact, this deal could net them a high pick if morales has a strong year, then signs as a free agent elsewhere.

    the angels also win, clearly. they needed to move a hitter, and morales was the least versatile. vargas gives them the back of the rotation innings eater they lost in the santana trade.
