MLB Trade Rumors: Dodgers Dealing Jonathon Broxton??

That is the first thought I had when I read this trade rumor from Bill Shaikin at the LA TImes:

The Angels and Dodgers are engaged in trade talks this morning for Heath Bell, the San Diego Padres' All-Star closer.

The Florida Marlins are among the other teams to have pursued Bell, but a source familiar with the talks said the Padres have narrowed the field to the Angels and Dodgers.

Both the Angels and Dodgers have made relief help a priority in trade talks. Bell would set up for Brian Fuentes with the Angels and could join George Sherrill and Jonathan Broxton in a late-inning mix with the Dodgers.

Could he be part of a deal for Roy Halladay?
