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.

I mean, Simmons gives this team a SS on a very nice deal for the next 5 years....but this offense was terrible last season and has ltitle to no bats in the minors. If you are going to deal your top prospect, you gotta do it for an impact bat....not a stud defensive SS

I would've rather kept aybar and Newcomb and just hoped aybar performed better in a contract year, this trade sucks.

I know the team has a lot of young pitching but I don't like this at all. Aybar, Ellis + lower level spect sure, but not Newcomb. Not for a all glove, weak bat SS
