Angels may be interested in Berkman, but maybe not

Angels.com's Lyle Spencer notes that the Angels aren't afraid to pull the trigger on a major move at the trade deadline, and that could include an interest in Berkman. Of course, his price tag "could be exorbitant."

Having dealt premium prospects Sean Rodriguez, Alex Torres and Matt Sweeney to the Rays last Aug. 28 in a waiver deal for Kazmir, the Angels don't have a surplus of young talent to offer. This makes a potential blockbuster deal less likely than it was at this time last year, when Roy Halladay was in their sights before zeroing in on Kazmir.
