Mets: Five possible trade partners
Los Angeles Angels
With a team ERA nearing the mid 4’s last year, it’s no secret that the Angels pitching has been a huge problem the last couple of years.
With the Mets having an excess of young, starting pitching, would Los Angeles be inclined to make a move? One thing is for certain, you can’t win in this league without pitching and the Angels have been finding that out the hard way. Having a pretty good lineup with depth at certain positions, it’s all for naught if you can’t preserve the lead. Maybe a name like Steven Matz or Matt Harvey entices Los Angeles to part with some of their young, talented position players.
A name that jumps out is Andrelton Simmons, on the sheer fact that he is probably the best defensive shortstop in baseball. If he could just hit more, this guy has an even brighter future.
