Watch for the Angels to be players in the Winter Meetings next week, as it sounds like the Tigers are willing to trade for Maicer Izturis (Morosi). Also, they're actively seeking a solution behind the plate and have already engaged in talks with the Colorado Rockies about a move for Chris Iannetta (Renck), possibly in exchange for Tyler Chatwood.
Oh, and C.J. Wilson has reportedly asked for $100M to play at home, where everybody knows (thinks) he wants to play (Heyman).

Tuesday Halolinks: Leave the Heavy Lifting To Us - Halos Heaven
"'Everybody's most tradeable assets are their youngest players,' DiPoto said. 'I'm always reluctant to part with young talent. That being said, if there is the opportunity to upgrade at the Major League level, you always have to pay attention.' Sure, it could just be posturing by the Angels GM, but when looking at the available free agent talent, the Halos best path to improvement will most likely be via the trade route."
