Could the LA Angels land such a prized young arm?

Noah Syndergaard is a potential ace that the Angels have been craving for the past couple of seasons.  He has tremendous talent with a 44-27 career record with a 3.21 ERA. This season Syndergaard has been inconsistent with a 4.33 ERA and a 1.263 WHIP.  However pitching for a mediocre Mets team cannot be good for his psyche as their have been times when he has itched very well and lost.

To get him in Angel Red may be a tall order though as the Angels would have to give up multiple high-level prospects to get Syndergaard which would almost assuredly include Jo Adell and possibly even Jose Suarez or Patrick Sandoval.  Would this be a good move for the Angels to make is debatable and has cause lots of debate on the Angel fan sites.

If somehow the Angels could get Syndergaard without sacrificing Jo Adell or any high-level pitching prospects then it would be worth it. The chances of that happening is very slim especially with 8 to 10 teams after him some of whom have much more high-level prospects that they could throw the Mets way.

Chances for Angels to land Syndergaard – D-.
