I don't think the Angels would do anything less than that.
Too much to surrender for Wood. After three years of partial service in the majors, his batting average is still hovering below the Mendoza Line. Ouch!
But for Izturis, I'd probably reluctantly part with Francisco, although I'd drag out the discussions and see if we could entice the Halos through some combination of lesser prospects. No doubt about it, Izturis would be a major upgrade for us at SS. But if he's going to declare for free agency in 2011, we have to be careful not to overpay for a one-year rental.
