The Hot Stove is heating and so far for the Angels they have been burned.

Lead off man and offensive catalyst Chone Figgins has signed a four year, $36 million dollar contract to join the Seattle Mariners. Figgins batting second behind Ichiro Suzuki will give the M's a formidable 1-2 punch at the top of the lineup. Seattle is also targeting John Lackey and Darren Oliver. They lost out on Curtis Granderson today as the Yankees made a blockbuster three-way with the Tigers and Diamondbacks to land the all-star centerfielder.

Tony Reagins may be willing to part with SS Erick Aybar in a deal for Roy Halladay. With Brandon Wood and Macier Izturis able to play the position it's possible Aybar could be part of a deal. However, Reagins told LA Times writer Mike DiGiovanna that Aybar is "still improving, still getting better, and there's a real good chance we'll see that as an Angel."

Despite Mike Scioscia telling Jeff Biggs, on "The Drive on AM830" this afternoon that Jason Bay was a "long-shot", more than a few reporters at the MLB Winter Meetings believe the Angels are pushing hard for the left fielder.

Tony Reagins has stated the Angels are considering a variety of hitters including Bay, Hideki Matsui and Vladimir Guerrero.
