I have an amazing proposition, an idea so ground-breaking and original, Reagins couldn't possibly think of it.
Knowing our situation now, if Reagins and the Angels plan on signing Bay, how about we sign him first AND THEN trade Rivera for an average pitcher? That way, fans will be able to overlook the idiocy of the Rivera-Lowe trade because we have Bay.
Now, what Reagins is going to do is trade Rivera for Lowe AND THEN try to sign Jason Bay. So when we get the news that Bay signs elsewhere, we lose one of our best hitters for an average pitcher. That's ok though, we can just insert Gary Matthews Jr. in the outfield to fill in the void.
