To trade Hamilton or not to trade him? That is the question for Halos

A scout with whom I speak regularly predicted Tuesday that Josh Hamilton would not open the season as a member of the Angels. I would not go that far.

The Angels Make A Move

By Greg Bearringer, AngelsWin.com Columnist -  Last night, I decided to take some time off of Twitter and spend even more time with my not-yet-four-week-old son.
