The Angels are going to make some trades in the coming weeks, this much we know. Unfortunately, we don't know much else.
Which players are going to be traded? We can guess, but we aren't totally sure.
Who will they be traded for? Pitching... probably, but we don't know which specific guys they are targeting or just how committed to that "young and controllable" stance.
What we can do though is predict how a certain segment of Angel fans will react when said trades go down. Thanks to my handy-dandy What-If Machine and trusty Fing-Longer, I have been able to generate potential trade scenarios and capture the social media responses of random Angels fans. Let's take a look into the future, shall we?
What if the Angels traded Mark Trumbo?
@TrumboneMe: OMG! Can't believe they traded my baby! The guy they got back isn't even cute! Totes gonna sell my pink Trumbo jersey and get a Matt Kemp one. #dreamyeyes
@HalosBro: Angels are such fucktards. Gonna regret loosing those #Trumbombs. Fuck OBP, bro. You gotta have those #dingers. #chicksdigthelongball
@LAAAANGELZ: WHAAAAT? WHO DA FUCKS EOVALDI? YOU CAN"T TRADE A FAN FAVE. FIRE THAT DUMBASS DIPOTO AND SCIOSCIA TO!!!!!!!!!!!
@Garrett_MWAH: Not the sexiest of returns, but anybody who thought the Angels were gonna get an ace for a guy with a .299 OBP is living in a fantasy world.
@Trouty20: Going to miss my boy Trumbo! Good luck in Miami !!!no comments
