Lowe to the Angels

Well it hasn't happened yet but it seems like a probable location.  Why?  Well today the market officially materialized for FW to start negotiating a trade for Lowe.  The Jays, M's, and Phil's have reportedly come to an agreement to send Halladay to the Phils and Cliff Lee to the Mariners.  

Update: 4:21 ET   -  Heyman apologizes for a quick trigger finger and says that while the Ms are confirmed as the third team he is checking to verify they'll get Lee. (Even if Lee isn't included FW can shop Lowe to both divisional rival Mariners and Angels)

On top of this there is a tentative agreement between Lackey and the Boston Red Sox.   According, to the reports Lackey will be moving across country for a 5 year 85 Million pay day.

 

The Angels seem to be the odd man out on pitching and FW has a history of working with the Halo's fine organization.  In fact, FW might have the leverage in this negotiation as oppose to the Tex deal.  Of course, the yankees might feel left out and try to counter with additional depth in their rotation with their recent departure of Wang.   The Yankess have internal options but the Red Sox (Beckett, Lester, Lackey, Dice K, and Clay) seem to be much deeper than (CC, Burnett, Pettite, Hughes, Joba).   

 

I say Lowe is gone before the end of the week.  What do you say?
