Mike Trout 20 year deal
You guys exercising Dan Haren's option?
15.5, with a 3.5 buyout
Personally I wish there was some way to retain Haren and Greinke.
Haren for Skaggs and Corbin ray:angels explore trade market before making option decisions on haren & santana.
Trout and C.J. Wilson are our only finalists for Gold Gloves. No Hunter or Pujols?
Interesting that Dipoto wanted to trade Santana but wasnt allowed, maybe Moreno should stick to signing checks and Dipoto can handle the trades?The Angels have explored the possibility of trading Dan Haren and Ervin Santana before Wednesday, the date on which option decisions are due, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports. The Angels are not expected to exercise Haren’s $15.5MM option or Santana’s $13MM option.
A rival executive suggested to Heyman that it could be difficult to trade the pitchers given their disappointing performances in 2012. GM Jerry Dipoto wanted to trade Santana last winter, but owner Arte Moreno wanted to keep him, according to Heyman.
Here's my take: many teams are in need of starting pitching, so it’s possible that a club would look at the options and determine that they’re reasonable. They would be especially appealing to teams that are often spurned by free agents.
Also, a team that acquired Haren or Santana and exercised the option could make the hurler a qualifying offer following the 2013 season, assuming a rebound. That could net any acquiring organization a first-round pick in the 2014 draft.
I doubt we are able to trade either of them. Kind of mad that it looks like Haren is not coming back at all, I think thats a big mistake but I trust Dipoto
Gold gloves are voted by managers I believe almost killing McCarthy probably lost him a vote or two
trade Santana for Garrett Jones
The Future is NOW!
Dipoto tells Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times that the team could exercise one or both options, trade one or both, or decline both options. All scenarios are still in play.
Pick up Haren's option trade Santana if possible
