Angels don’t believe Lee trade requires a response

Angels manager Mike Scioscia told the Los Angeles Times that he doesn’t believe general manager Tony Reagins has to make a trade in response to the division-rival Rangers’ pickup of Cliff Lee. Although the team is interested in adding a first baseman, Scioscia said L.A. is unlikely to rent a free-agent-to-be.

"Our philosophy is not to bring someone in here for two or three months and empty your cupboard in the minor leagues to do it," Scioscia told the newspaper. "So therefore the pool gets smaller and smaller as to players you can acquire."
