The Future is NOW!
Marmol is terrible....count your blessings
seriously? c'mon. he has a career BB% of 18.2 and his xfip is 4.21. He is a perfect example of how sabermaetrics show the real pitcher. Marmol for haren is a steal for the cubsunderstand why. However the one problem in recent years w Marmol is that NL players who have known him and seen him a lot know his slider has ridiculous movement and rarely stays in the zone so they sat on it. To hitters that aren't familiar w him it'll be harder to sit on it.

29 minutes...Haren gets traded?
#Angels have declined the option on Dan Haren.
I honestly rather let Haren go for nothing than get Marmol back. Paying him 9.8M would have been horrible and would have prevented us from signing anyone else for the pen
smh at the troll
Vladdy you think Angels sign a starter or someone who can spot start
We pretty much need to sign 2 SP. We cant head into the season with two big question marks like Richards and Williams in our starting rotation. Williams should be in the pen as our long relief option/spot starter.
We need at least a good number 3 pitcher and a 5th man that can throw 200 innings.
Best case scenario we re-sign Greinke for somewhere in the neighborhood of 5-6 years 120M. Then sign someone like Edwin Jackson to a 1 year deal for around 10M.
I wonder if we maybe sign Haren to a 1yr 8-10M so basically a total of 11.5-13.5M deal.
MIKE TROUT FOR MVP!!!!!
No way Jackson signs a one year deal. What do you think of this.
Gavin Floyd ( 1 yr 9.5mm) for Alberto Callaspo and either Cam Bedrosian or Luis Jimenez?
