The Los Angeles Angels need to improve at the infield corners to catch the Rangers

The Los Angeles Angels are 46-39 on the season which has them 3.5 games behind the Rangers in the A.L. West. The Angels should be aggressive in their pursuit of a 1B and 3B in the trade market. Of the 1B likely available Jorge Cantu, Prince Fielder, Derek Lee, Lance Berkman and Adam LaRoche make the most sense. Lyle Overbay, Ty Wigginton and Casey Kotchman are likely fallback options at 1B. Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Bautista, Ty Wigginton, Miguel Tejada, Jose Lopez, Jorge Cantu, Pedro Feliz and Akinori Iwamura all made sense at 3B in verying degrees. As far as the lefty out of the pen it seems as if Scott Downs, Will Ohman, Rafael Perez, Jerry Blevins, Doug Slaten, Tim Byrdak and Javier Lopez look like possible targets. If the Blue Jays fall any further behind I would attempt to make a huge deal with them involving Jose Bautista, Lyle Overbay and Scott Downs.
