Mystery team in on Lester


Recommended Posts

Not getting my hopes up, although Lester would seemingly make the team nearly dominant. Lester, Richards, Weaver, Shoemaker, and Wilson (especially if Wilson bounces back) is deadly. Santiago, Tropeano, and Rasmus make up some depth. Would and wouldn't be surprised at the same time if they sign him.

I think the mystery team is the Seattle Mariners.

The Mariners would be a very serious threat if they got Lester.

I don't think it is totally insane to believe the Angels could sign Lester. They would exceed the tax threshold the next two years if they did so, but the penalties wouldn't be prohibitive. Assuming Lester caused the Angels to exceed the threshold by $12 mil in each of the next two seasons, you'd be looking at only $5-6 mil in penalties. That amount isn't so high that it should automatically preclude signing him.

Sign Lester, trade Iwakuma for a bat. It would make sense.

I think they'll keep Kuma and trade Walker for Justin Upton.

Right now, the Mariners have a better middle of the order than we do "on paper" with Cano, Cruz and Seager. Ackley and Morrison came on strong in the second half for the M's too.

I have Seattle as the team that will give the Angels the most problems from the AL West in '15.
