Kinsler claimed...

75 posts in this topic

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.

You pick up Kinsler then you lose Cowart ... no need to go there

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?....

Hopefully the Angels claimed him. He plays great defense and Cowart is better at 3rd. Do you really want to see more of Marte and Valbuena at 3rd?
