Just one man's opinion, but I've read and heard too many insane and inane comments from front office types and "insiders" to put a ton of stock in what they think. I long ago decided to trust my own judgment instead of theirs.
So when I see the Angels deal away a starting pitcher who'd have taken roughly $4M out of the budget, my guess is this makes them more likely to pursue some of the remaining free agent starters as there's no sensible reason why one less arm and a pile of freed-up cash would make them less likely to pursue such an arm.
