    In defense of Arte Moreno

    I don't believe the lack of organizational success is on Arte. He spends money, which is what you'd expect an owner to do. He has his limits, which are largely arbitrary and pointless, but that's his decision. In the past, he had meddled, but at least he's personally invested.  Really, I just think we've had some GM's with fundamental and philosophical flaws that have screwed the system long term. Stoneman and Scioscia did such a great job together. They drafted and developed well, has

    Projected 26-Man Roster (Updated 12/1)

    As best I can tell, this is the current 26-Man Roster situation for Opening Day.   I'll explain the chart a bit. The dark red are those players who, unless involved in a trade or something unexpected occurs, are virtual locks for the 2022 major league roster. The light red are those players who, if the Angels make no moves, are likely to default into roster positions - but they are far from locks, and could either be replaced with a new acquisition via free agency or trade, or swa

    Was Raisel Iglesias a One-Off, Elite Closer for the Angels? The Angels started the 2021 season with what could only be described as a questionable bullpen with two exceptions, in the form of Raisel Iglesias, an established, premium arm, and Chris Rodriguez, a young, promising prospect from the farm system. As the team limped past the Trade Deadline, the front office shook things up and made a series of promotions from the farm system to audition some new, young arms in anticipation of rebui

    2022 Angelswin.com Primer Series: Rotation

    Rotation Depth Behind Shohei Ohtani is Critical for the Angels 2022 Campaign and Beyond Author Note: Due to the wildly active free agent market leading into the CBA expiration date, things moved so fast that the author decided to keep the original write-up of this installment of the Primer Series and simply strike-out or slightly modify content to reflect the multiple free agent signings over the last week. Rotation help, particularly in the front-of-the-rotation, is clearly the Angels

    2022 Angelswin.com Primer Series: Strategy

    Los Angeles Angels General Manager Perry Minasian (Source: OCRegister.com) Just like Moreno’s looming financial decision, GM Perry Minasian also faces a series of challenges of his own to answer this offseason. First on his list is solving the riddle of the starting pitching staff, which has been an elusive target in past seasons. Using every draft pick in the 2021 Rule 4 Draft on pitching was a start, but one that will probably not bring immediate returns. Making an early strike to si

    2021 Marked 50 Years of Angels Baseball - Time to Throw a Fancy Party? So, before we dive into the numbers, we need to have a discussion about the approved payroll number that Angels owner Arte Moreno provides to General Manager (GM) Perry Minasian. As the Orange County Register’s Jeff Fletcher reminded me recently, that number Moreno provides is not transparent, it could include or not include player salaries, player benefits, Minor League player salaries, non-guaranteed salaries, the

    2022 Angelswin.com Primer Series: Introduction

    The Only Numbers that Truly Matter? I love numbers. The numbering system has provided a strong foundation for human knowledge dating back thousands of years. The Mesopotamians used it. The Egyptians used it. The Greeks used it. Indian and Arabic cultures used and improved it. And so on and so on and so forth. Numbers, calculations, theories, and formulas have contributed to many advancements in a truly diverse set of fields from farming and irrigation, construction, the automobile

      As the Orange County Register’s Jeff Fletcher reminded me recently, that number Moreno provides is not transparent, it could include or not include player salaries, player benefits, Minor League player salaries, non-guaranteed salaries, the cost of a Pepsi or Coca-Cola out of the clubhouse vending machine, yacht fuel, etc. The point is that we, as fans, do not know, so determining how much payroll the Angels have available for the upcoming season is not entirely clear.

      The current 2017-2021 Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), clearly states the following regarding ‘Actual Club Payroll’:

      Was Raisel Iglesias a One-Off, Elite Closer for the Angels?

      The Angels started the 2021 season with what could only be described as a questionable bullpen with two exceptions, in the form of Raisel Iglesias, an established, premium arm, and Chris Rodriguez, a young, promising prospect from the farm system. As the team limped past the Trade Deadline, the front office shook things up and made a series of promotions from the farm system to audition some new, young arms in anticipation of rebuilding the 2022 bullpen.

      Realistically, if Minasian focuses most of the available payroll and resources for one or more starting pitchers, a shortstop, etc., that will leave little left for relief help, thus relying heavily on that aforementioned bastion of young arms. The signing of Aaron Loup did not come without a cost, so barring a Moreno financial flex, it is quite possible the Angels front office may be done in this area, despite a potential desire to retain Raisel.
