It's not about Will Wilson. Please stop.
Please don't suggest the ONLY guy the Angels were to deal with Cozart is Wilson.
The Angels were willing to deal a top 5 prospect in their system, from their depth, to shed Cozart.
We were willing to trade for 2019 draft picks not in their top30 for Dylan Bundy and his modest salary.
Were those 4 guys the ONLY 4 guys worth trading for in the Angels system? Those 4?
1) It is about Wilson because that was the deal and thus, part of the evaluation.
2) Like I said, I’m sure they take Adell but that’s not realistic.
3) They traded Bundy and got rid of his salary for those 4. You are now saying, would they take on more than double the salary they got rid of and take on 4 similar prospects? Who knows? Just because they were good enough to deal for Bundy, a mediocre pitcher set to make a decent salary, doesn’t mean they would have taken on double his salary for 4 similar players. In other words, this comparison isn’t remotely what they actually did.
Again, the most likely scenario is that ownership is cheap and greedy...have said that from the beginning.
Just saying that there are many reasons why a deal may not be made.
