why do we need to get another closer? we have 2 already!
OT:Our SP just needs to get to the 6th inning then our bullpen will finish the job
Makes sense that the Pirates would want Van Slyke , since his pop played very well for them years ago. The Pirates probably think the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree and are intrigued about the possibilities. I say do it!!!
DEDICATED TO DWIGHT HOWARD
This would be great! I think Torre was an overrated manager...but I believe his emphasis on quality pitchers was right on. Can't have enough pitching, guys!
I honestly wouldn't mind another all star caliber SP. Barring injury, pitchers are more consistent than hitters...and our hitting was BAD at the end of last year. I'd be ecstatic with a Lee..even Sanchez...maybe even Dickey if it doesn't cost us too much.
I'm going to merge this into the off-season thread.
If there is a trade happening and you have legit sources, make another thread but this is just speculation.
I thought the Dodgers might try to sign Hamilton due to the fact the market is lower than he might of expected. Go in for the steal. Well I was wrong on the team, but was right in the city. Wow image The middle of the Angeles order will be a beast if they sign him. I still wish the dodgers would sign him. Most say don't need him. I for one thing he would be the best hitting on team if kemp don't recover this season.
@JonHeymanCBS: #angels are indeed getting closer on hamilton deal, as @joeontheradio reported
I wonder how much Anaheim offered Hamilton.
@Ken_Rosenthal: Source: #Angels, Hamilton in agreement. Five-year deal, as first reported by @jonmorosi.
Angeles did the what I wanted the dodgers to do. They replaced hunter for Hamilton. I wanted Hamilton to replace Ethier.
Replace one bad contract with another bad contract.
Sounds like Kendrys Morales is expendable now. He could fill our 4th outfielder, backup 1B positions. Although i doubt the Angels would ask for nothing less than the moon from us.
I don't know about 2 bad contracts. I wouldn't have paid Ethier for the amount he signed for.
With the angels having too many outfielders and a hole in the rotation do you think a Harang for Bourjos trade would be possible.
angels paid him 125 million
cant blame them, he's a beast. if he keeps it together, angels can be real good
pujols, hamilton & trout is a beast 3-4-5
