Angels trade for Andrelton Simmons - Aybar, Newcomb, Ellis & $2.5mm to Braves $*#&

You get a little better defensively, worse offensively, and you give up your top prospect.  Unreal. 


Lets not undermine how good Simmons is. The Angels got A LOT better defensively. Aybar is a good defensive shortstop. Simmons is the best in the game.


He's also marginally worse than Aybar with the bat, so its a wash.


But giving up Newcomb for him is absurd.
