08:09 AM ET 07.25 | The Angels, looking to upgrade their starting rotation, have a target. [Los Angeles] and Tampa Bay Rays have discussed a deal involving pitcher James Shields, a source said Tuesday. The trade would send Shields to the Angels in exchange for center fielder Peter Bourjos and catcher Hank Conger, according to the source. The deal is complicated, the source said, because money is involved and there is a chance that Angels pitcher Ervin Santana could also be included. ... The Rays likely view Bourjos as a future replacement for center fielder B.J. Upton, who likely will leave via free agency after the season. The Rays also have been looking for catching help all season, and Conger could provide that.

I thought that was a Phillies thing?

Oh, and on that note, boy the Phillies are going to regret having 110 million tied up into 5 players next year.

I like it. Trout is a good CF--not the same caliber glove as Bourjos, but they will be just fine with him in CF for the next 10 years or so

there its not a single contract guarantee from the phillies to all 3 pitchers, as its CLIFF LEE, HAMELS HALLADAY, the rangers are expecting to lureout lee and hamels before the dealine plus the rangers do have plenty good PROSPECTS!!!

Hamels signing with the Phils long term resets the trade market for guys such as Shields, Grienke and others. Tampa is smiling, as they will probably get Santana, Bourjos and Conger for Shields.

the question here its,, its james shields a free agent at the end of this season?? or shields has been signed by the rays to a long term contract and how many years does shields has left in this contract???

Shields.

if shields its a free agent by the end of the season, the rays would win in this trade and the team who loses would be the halos, after all the halos are use to lost top prospects in every trade every time that they think could help them, but a rented player has cero guarantee in signing with the angels,,, mark texeira!!!

NO, not Peter!!!!!!

it appears that the players who are in that trade, could it be santana, conger, howe kendrick, the angels could send to the rays this players,,,except pete bourjos!!!

July 25, 2012  01:53 PM ET

if bourjos hasn't been hitting conssistent its thanks to mike sciocia every day lineup,
if the angels manager plays bourjos in every game in place of hunter then bourjos could have better stats as a hitter, the less plate appearences for bourjos, the lower his avg the lower his stats as well!!

Conger

conger has never been able to catch to his full capabilities for mike sciocia demands, best case esenario for conger,, the rays!!!

Hamels signing with the Phils long term

hamels got doomed, the phillies should had paid hamels 25 millions per season the phillies won, hamels lost!!!
