Cole Hamels now?


Recommended Posts

This is the remainder on his contract.

 

30 - 2014: $22.5 million
31 - 2015: $22.5 million
32 - 2016: $22.5 million
33 - 2017: $22.5 million
34 - 2018: $22.5 million
35 - 2019: $19 million option or $6 million buyout

 

There’s a slight twist with that 2019 option in that it vests and becomes a $24 million option if Hamels throws at least 400 innings in 2017-2018, including at least 200 innings in 2018, and isn’t on the disabled list at the end of 2018.

Getting into another heavy contract with a 30+ yr old pitcher?

 

No thanks. 

 

Well, he's left handed so that's a plus.

 

That said, the Angels don't have anything to offer for Hamels. MAYBE for Lee, but not Hamels. Even if they took his entire contract he'd still likely warrant a top prospect.

I prefer we get another starting pitcher. Here's how I see it.

Lester, Price (after next season), Cueto after next season (if he gets there unsigned) all going to want 20 mill + a year. If you like Hamels alot, why wait? Unless it's due to lack of prospects.

Eventually I think we'll need to sign a starting pitcher. All of these guys around the same age as well. I hate using the line "it's not my money" but I don't know how much Arte is willing to spend so if he takes on another one of these contracts none of us know how it will impact other signings that will need to be made.

Sources: #Angels unlikely to add SP pre-7/31. Wilson expected back early Aug. Team has some $$$; would prefer not to trade more prospects.

that part stood out. Looks like only way they get a SP is if they just take on the contract of a guy from some other team who sucks

Ya posted that in another thread.

Smokescreen!
