I hope Dipoto acquires another SP, but that seems more and more unlikely given the passing days of no rumors/information, not to mention an article explaining his satisfaction with the current rotation. We all know Blanton isn't the answer, but I have more faith in him than Richards. The Angels should be able to afford another arm, so hopefully it's just a matter of time. Now with Greinke off the market, there will be much more activity regarding the remaining pitchers. We'll see what happens.
    Well find one with on a 12 million remaining budget.

    Well, you've got me there. Trading Mike Napoli for Vernon Wells was clearly a winner.

If the Angels could get Sanchez and maybe look for someone at third, then I'd be happy with the offseason.
    No it is not for over paying! It is what the market rate is paying, it is like your salary, if the market rate sayes you deserve this much money then you will get that salary.

    The market rate has been establish last year when we signed CJ Wilson and Pujols and say 6 years means nothing to us.

    If the Angels are a LA team then we need to pay as a LA market. WE have established what the budget will be it is not the other way around. It is economics 101 plain and simple.

    Challenge the Dodgers if it is not too late, lets go 6 years and 150.

    This offseason has been a disaster... I'm glad we traded away big pieces of our farm for a 2 month rental. At least we got a halfway decent bullpen on paper now.

    that trade made Anthopalis look like a genius, and then he looked like an idiot when he dealt him away to the rangers.
