I'd be ok if it's the Angels.  He's always been clutch and good defense.  Move Cowart to 3B, and Valbuena to purely utility IF.  Kinsler only gets $3 mil rest of season with a team option for '18 for $10m or $5 m buyout from what I read.   Just not sure what it would take prospect wise to get him.  I can't imagine a whole lot.  Within the Angels capability.

Why would you lose Cowart?  He can play 3B.

Meh. He's kind of a douche, and his numbers have been subpar this year.

I don't like the guy, but he would be an upgrade and I will take him.  

Till he hits below the Mendoza line and gets ran out of town like the last two before Cowart?.....Cowart is our 3Bman in the very near future. Something will break I just don't know what or who.....

Sure.  I am not sure why you would assume he would regress to that but ok.

I'm just saying currently. If we were to get him and he got 2 hits in his first 21 ab's with the Halos....(Example only his AVG for the year would drop to .215).... He's really not having a very good season overall and is closer to imploding completely than running off a 300+ batting avg for the final 2 months of the season.

What other team in the playoff hunt would need a 2B?

Could also be a claim to block another team from acquiring him in the future before Sept 1st.....

Indians? Rays? D-Backs? BlueJays- 4 games out? Halos? Dodgers?....

On second thought maybe they should ... having Kinsler and Yescobar batting somewhere between 1-6 would impact our lineup. 

I wouldn't be surprised if Eppler made the claim.

Escobar is injured and he's supposed to be 2-3 weeks.

That said, if he keeps wearing that man purse on one side it may put further strain on his oblique and extend his time on the DL.

Speaking of Escobar, I'm trying to see a silver lining in his slash line and offensive production since he's below average defensively at 3B.

Nope, still can't find anything...  .274/.333/.397 with just 7 HR and 1 SB.
