The trade deadline is set to conclude at 4pm today, and the Angels have pretty much made their moves. Barring anything crazy in the final hours, the Halos are looking at moving forward with this current lineup. David Murphy, David Dejesus, Connor Gillaspie, and Shane Victorino are the haul from the deadline. For the most part, this is somewhat expected. When Dipoto left as GM, it seemed like the Angels were more content to make smaller moves and stay away from the high risk players.

So the crop of outfield talent brought in makes sense, and in all essentially just gives the lineup a chance to have someone of major league talent play in LF everyday. But its hard not to get caught up in the moves that other teams within the division have made, most notably the Astros. Houston took over first place in the AL West after a sweep of the Angels, and had a deadline haul that  added LHP Scott Kazmir & OF Carlos Gomez. Two big time moves that could be difference maker in this division race…
