    Says the man who signed Pujols very secretly

    But no, we probably didn't make an offer.

Like I said, we have some good infield prospects we just really lack pitching both starters and relievers. I guess we will see if Grichuk ever figures it out, he is only twenty. It's kind of unfortunate for him that he is tied to Mike Trouts hip.
    C.J. Cron has a 3.6% walk rate, which is just pathetic. He has one less walk this year than he had last year in about 100 more ABs.

    Grichuk is young so you cant write him off but his walk rate just as bad (3.5%), the problem is he isnt even hitting for average or power like Cron is.

    I agree Cowart being in the top 100 wouldnt surprise me.

    So you're saying our minor league system is a huge joke?

    While that's true, there are a lot of players at that level who don't walk a lot, I thinks its normal and while a little troublesome it isn't the worst thing in the world. Besides while he isn't walking he also isn't striking out very much either, I think it shows that he isn't a lost cause in terms of plate discipline. Go through the top 100 prospect list there are plenty of guys at and around his league who don't have great BB% if he is still having trouble with it in AAA then we should raise a red flag, but i do think he is pretty good. It's just a matter of finding him a place to play at the top!

    Yeah I don't want to write off grichuck either but he isn't really helping himself.

    @Alden_Gonzalez: Don't expect #Angels to be 2 active in int'l market. Told it's not a point of emphasis right now. If anything, focus is on "lower end" @Alden_Gonzalez: Meaning the 17- 18-year-old who can sign for a reasonable, 6-figure bonus; rather than the 7-figure guys. #Angels
    Can't say that I'm surprised but still disappointing

    Japanese pitching prospect Shohei Otani announced that he will pursue a career in MLB rather than turn professional in Japan, according to the Associated Press. The Red Sox, Rangers, and Dodgers have all sent representatives to Japan to meet with Otani recently and the Orioles are also said to have interest in the right-hander.

    "I think I will start in the minor leagues but I want to challenge in the majors. It's been my dream since entering high school," said the 18-year-old.

    Otani, who stands at 6'4" and weighs 190 pounds, has a strong fastball that has been clocked in the 99-100 mph range. If Otani signs with a major league club, he'll be the first potential top NPB draft pick to make the direct jump from high school in Japan to the U.S.

    As a tall right-hander, many are quick to compare Otani to fellow Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish. Otani boasts a similarly live arm with a little bit more velocity and a lot less polish than Darvish showed in high school, writes Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker. In terms of build, Otani is slightly shorter than the 26-year-old hurler but is heavier than Darvish was at 18.
    Mark him down as someone the Angels won't sign

    @JesseSanchezMLB: Source: Yu Darvish was not part of the #Rangers group that met with Japanese teen pitching prospect Otani. Darvish returned home last week.

    Of course the Rangers are interested

    @jimcallisBA: Believe he counts toward the 2012 $2.9 mil limits. @matttrueblood: Otani would be treated like all other IFA? With the budgets in place?

    Teams can go over the 2.9M budget but then you have to pay fines

    If Texas or Oakland signs him, I'm going to be so pissed. I don't understand why we don't increase our international scouting.
