Article suggests the Angels might try to sell Aybar and Downs. Their contracts are a little pricely, but they both address needs. Aybar is under control for 3 more years and is a decent leadoff hitter so we could put him near the top of the lineup. Downs is a rental, but he is a lefty and his numbers are pretty good too.
I say if we can, try to pry Trumbo from them too. His average is not very good, but he hits for RH power which is something this team is definitely lacking. ESPN lists him as a 1B, but I am pretty sure he has played LF before too.
I am not sure what they need so does anybody have any trade scenarios? With and without Trumbo?
Well, if you ask for Trumbo, they'll probably counter with Mat Latos. A kid or two for Downs makes a ton of sense to me. Probably would take too much to get Aybar.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
