The Los Angeles Angels on Monday traded shortstop Orlando Cabrera and $1.5 million to the Chicago White Sox for starter Jon Garland, a deal that has insiders speculating over what could be next for the Angels.

The Angels have been active in trade talks for Florida's Miguel Cabrera and this could signal they are close. Depending on the players that go to Florida – second baseman Howie Kendrick, Reggie Willits, Jeff Mathis, right-handed top Prospect Nick Adenhart and either lefty Joe Saunders or Ervin Santana have been rumored, while Jered Weaver could be dealt in a larger deal that would send Dontrelle Willis along with Miguel Cabrera to Anaheim.

The Angels would then have Cabrera at third, Erick Aybar or Brandon Wood at shortstop and Chone Figgins or Maicer Izturis at second base.

According to our sources, the Angels could very well be on the verge of making this deal with the Marlins for Miguel Cabrera and as a backup plan, go hard for Miguel Tejada to play SS, if the Dodgers ante up and give the Marlins what they're asking for. They're said to be asking for Clayton Kershaw, Matt Kemp & Andy LaRoche, but will Colletti budge?

One thing is for certain, Tony Reagins is making an impression early on amongst his peers and the fans. He appears to be a man on a mission, a mission that is mapped out

Stay tuned, the rumors are getting as wild and juicy as that Thanksgiving turkey this Thursday, as the stove is already HOT.
Love to hear what you think!

I'm guessing that the package for Miggy Cabrera is something along the lines of Adenahrt, Saunders, Wood, and Mathis. Kendrick stays.

I wouldn't give up much for Tejada, who's numbers have taken a serious dip over the past couple of years.
