Or if the Angels see Wood as a replacement for Figgins, substitute Izturis in there...anyway, the Reds unload some dollars and add some offense at shortstop. Kendrick seems to have fallen out of favor with the Angels but could blossom into an offensive threat in the NL and in GABP. Would Kendrick at second and Wood/Izturis at short would be an improvement over Phillips and Janish at short?

The Angels might be willing to add a Phillips and his contract in order to take a step toward improving their elite team. The Reds could benefit from reducing payroll at second and adding depth/offense at short.
