Maybe A.J. Smith is not going to be the Angels new general manager, but think of what he pulled off yesterday. By acquiring veteran receiver Chris Chambers, Smith did the unthinkable -- a rare trading deadline blockbuster in the NFL. Some as foreign in the league as a Norv Turner winning season. Smith now has more blockbuster deadline deals than retired Angels G.M. Bill Stoneman, with one.
So maybe Smith wouldn't be such a bad choice to be the Angels G.M., just don't let him hire a manager.
