L.A. CONFIDENTIAL.

Byline: -- Doug Padilla

The recent signing of reliever Justin Speier seemed to suggest that Scot Shields could be used in a trade package, but the same Boston Globe report downplayed that option.

An unnamed National League executive, who inquired about Shields, said the response received was that the Angels would keep the right-hander and sign him to a long-term deal.

The Boston Red Sox might be interested in Shields, Ervin Santana and a top prospect (possibly Brandon Wood) in exchange for Manny Ramirez. ...

Speier, a Phoenix-area resident, called his new role in the Angels bullpen his dream job. The right-hander, who traditionally has been tougher against left-handed hitters, might be used in tandem with Shields to help set up closer Francisco Rodriguez. That is, if Shields isn't traded.
