08:08 AM ET 07.17 | Peter Bourjos' name has popped up in trade rumors this month almost as often as the three marquee pitchers believed to be on the block: Cole Hamels, Zack Greinke and Matt Garza. But you will find no egg shells, pins or needles under the feet of the Angels center fielder. "This is the most relaxed I've ever been at the trade deadline because I've been through it so many times," Bourjos said before Monday night???s game against the Detroit Tigers. "Whatever happens, happens. If I'm traded, I'll go to a team that wants me, that needs me. But hopefully, I can play my whole career here."

He has performed under his potential and been out performed by Trout. IN this regards, he's like a Saltamacchia when he was with the Rangers. He's an intriguing pick up.

GG caliber defense. Hard working and good in the clubhouse. I would prefer to keep him and see if his bat comes around. An OF of Trout, Borjous and Trumbo would be fun to watch for the next few years or so.

man, the angels would ended trading this elite OF and get nothing in return for a simple rental player, you wait and see it angels tend to give away their good players for a rental player then they always end with their hands empty!!

this site its acting up,,,

July 17, 2012  11:41 AM ET

angels do have too many holes in the whole team lately,,,,, their rotation, their bullpen, their offense!!!

July 17, 2012  11:42 AM ET

they have been weak in their third basemen spot in the last 3 years,,,

July 17, 2012  11:43 AM ET

their catching spot got worse not better but worse to say the least,,,

July 17, 2012  11:45 AM ET

their bullpen got better after they trade a player for ernesto frieri but then the rest of the relievers had been inconssistent all over the plate!!!

July 17, 2012  11:48 AM ET

their rotation did look good in paper but in reality the halos lack in good reportorie in their starters with the exeption of weaver and wilson the rest of their starters are lost in every game that they are schedule to pitch,,

if the angels do trade bourjos, most likely this trade would be wasted why?? because not matter who the angels get in that partitular trade if the player that could be a part of any trade its a free agent by next year angels could be unable to sign them at all, that's a risk angels would be dealing!!!

angels are seeking relievers in exchange for bourjos,,, is this mean he its a ulitlity player?? i thought he was a complete player by any means,,,

July 17, 2012  11:58 AM ET

if it was a better invertion the halos should trade haren and santana for a pitcher who could be with the club in the next 3 years or so,,,

July 17, 2012  11:59 AM ET

other players that could be traded, vernon wells, tori hunter catcher hester,,

for the halos to be able trade this players they would need to pay the whole or partial of the contract for wells, hunter, santana dan haren,,,

July 17, 2012  12:04 PM ET

the lack in the halos offense has been and will continue be a part of the problem,,,, with pujols or without pujols, with hunter or without hunter!!!

July 17, 2012  12:04 PM ET

Call Sandy Alderson!!!

maybe the angels are tented to fire their pitching coach, maybe they are hoping in santana dan haren to really contribute with the team, except that its just too difficult to make any type of mistakes,,,
