LA Angels Trade Ideas: 3 Waiver Deals To Help Them Pass the Rangers

Yea, yea, yea, so what if the trade deadline passed. It's not as if Jose Reyes was on the radar or anything.

And even if he was who wants to take on a once-in-a-lifetime franchise face with a fine set of tight knitted braids? Not me; I'm perfectly content with our dysfunctional lineup.

If the Halos were a golf pro we'd resemble the drunken overweight caricature of John Daly. If we were an actor our body is the loose flab of Chris Farley and our mind, the brittleness of Vin Diesel.

Even better, is the art of getting things scott free, right?

Though Arte is a wheeler dealer, why not rip off the waiver wires to close the disturbing gap between the Halo and AL West leading Texas?

Now that the Aramis Ramirez, Reyes and Cuddyer talks ended, we might as well give in and let go when it comes to our playoff success.

I know... I'm a cynical contrarian, but who can blame me?

Considering the poor performance last series against the Rangers—one in which the Rangers calmly stole three of four, solidifying their bend toward playoff success—things this year are beginning to embody the story of Sylvester Stallone in the first Rocky.

As inspirational as we've been all year, winning games with the admirable small ball, reality says otherwise—that Hercules will always outlast sling shooting David, even if the act of divinity is upon him.
