The Angels Skipped Out on Bartolo with Good Reason

well written article. 

 

but it doesn't answer the key question - in terms of competing for the last few weeks and into the playoffs, what are the benefits of not getting colon and rolling w/ the current staff?

 

A staff of weaver santiago and shoemaker sounds incredibly suspect.

@JonHeymanCBS: angels, who suffered the ill-timed loss of ace, weigh colon, cahill, feldman and possibly burnett. http://t.co/zs8mnKVLo6

@Ken_Rosenthal: Source: #Angels, DBacks last spoke about Cahill weeks ago. No deal expected. Cahill $12M in ’15. Club options of $13M, $13.5M in ’16, ’17…

@Ken_Rosenthal: …However, Cahill has lower luxury-tax number due to his 5-yr, $30.5M deal (LT figure based on avg annual $). Also: 3.43 ERA last 7 starts.

Just a simple question here.

 

"DiPoto took a calculated risk that Colon would slip through waivers unclaimed and was proven right."

 

If I'm not mistaken, weren't the Angels the last team that could make a claim on Colon?

If DiPoto passes, doesn't that automatically mean that Colon would pass waivers?

Not necessarily. The waiver wire is private and no one knows what team has put in a claim or not.  You have 48 hours to put in a claim and once that expires, the team with the worst record gets awarded the claim.  They don't go team by team on a list and ask if they want to claim a player.

Yes. Would have made no sense for the Angels to have claimed him.

Thanks. If that's the case, good job by DiPoto. It gives us leverage because it expands our choices.

Might have missed his name..but why isn't anyone talking about Jorge De La Rosa?

 

Isn't he actual pretty good pitcher whose a free agent after the year?

He's got really weird home/road splits. As in, he pitches much better at Coors Field than anywhere near sea level.

 

Go figure.
