According to some reports, the Los Angeles Angels would trade Shohei Ohtani during this year’s MLB Trade Deadline. Although it would be difficult to argue that Ohtani is the most valuable player in baseball right now, the Angels aren’t going to win anything with him on their roster if they don’t build a team around him. This led to trade rumors. Check out the best bookmakers for betting on baseball.
Los Angeles is currently at 43-59, 23 games behind Houston Astros. This is unacceptable for a team with Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout.
According to reports, there were several teams that made big offers to acquire the star pitcher and hitter. It would take a lot to land Shohei, a star pitcher and hitter for the Angels. The Yankees have one of the best baseball farm systems, so if any team could have made this trade work for the Angels, it would have been the Yankees.
We at The Grueling Truth beleive they aren’t trading Ohtani because Moreno wants to keep him there:
“It’s easy to understand why Moreno would push back. He’s spent a lot of money on the Angels over the years without getting much in return. The Angels have changed players, managers, and general managers without much success. Moreno has been the constant. At some point, being the steady face of failure has to impact one’s ego. Trading Ohtani would be an admission that he and his brain trust could never figure out a way to build a winner despite being gifted two generational talents.”
It will be interesting to see whether Los Angeles changes their mind in the hours that pass before the deadline, but it does not appear to be the case.
It will be a fascinating few seasons in Los Angeles, and one that they hopefully take more seriously to surround Shohei with talent.
