Josh Paul Traded to D-Rays

The Angels may have a bit of vengeful side. After Josh Paul's egregious fielding mishap in game two of the ALCS last season, many figured his days in Anaheim were numbered. The Halos traded the backup catcher to Major League Baseball's version of purgatory: Tampa Bay. Paul hit an anemic .189 with 2 HR in 34 games last season. In return the Devil Rays sent the Angels minor league infielder Travis Schlichting, a 21-year-old who spent last season in Single A where he hit .252 with 3 HR and 39 RBI in 111 games.

Don't be looking for your "Schlichting" Angels jersey any time soon. This very well could be the last time that name appears in print.
