Scott Kazmir to the Angels certainly sends a message that the Rays should not be sending to their fans. On the surface of this trade is a contender sending their ace to another contender in the same league but deep down this trade is no differant than the Blue Jays letting Alex Rios go on waivers; the only difference is that the Rays got some decent players in return.
Only one thing bothers me about this trade, why did it happen in August? The Rays could have got a lot more in return in the winter for Kazmir. Macier Izturis is rumored to be the player going back to the Rays and that would be a nice return for Kazmir, if its true.
