Mine's close, but I'd actually prefer Wheeler to Bumgarner, who seems to be slipping. I'm also hoping Grandal can be had for 3/50 but I'd pay up to 4/65 as I think he's just that much of a perfect fit for hte Angels.

Wish List: three starting pitchers. One of Strasburg/Cole, one of Bumgarner/Wheeler, and another guy who can eat innings at league average (even Porcello would be ok here).

Trade some of the spare parts for a bona fide third baseman or second baseman. 

Sign or trade for two good pen arms.

We hire Maddon and then make a run for starting pitching -- I thought Strasburg was more 'available' than he appears to be -- even with the option - he's not going anywhere.

Gerrit Cole - make a run for him but I see the Halos getting out-bid. I could see the Dodgers getting Cole.

Bumgarner is only 30 - he's one of the best gamers in MLB-- he could double as a PH when you run out of players -- as we tend to do if we carry multiple DHs on our team (Pujols, Ohtani). I would like to see the Halos make a strong bid for him,.  Dropping down a tier -- a 38 year old Adam Wainwright may be more the Halos style/ budget. (I think Wainwright could be an effective 5/6 inning AL starter). Some one mention Pineda -- another type of second tier guy the Halos would sign.

Not that many F/A I am that intrigued with.  Would like to see Martin Maldonado back in the fold -- even as our back up catcher -- but we didn't sign him last off season when he was waiting around and available so I don't think we would think we would do any different this off season.

Two guys I like on the list as affordable upgrades are Martin Prado who is a very versatile player, has some pop and would be a third base/ MIF utility depth guy  Scooter Gennett is also on the list -- SF Giants picked him up at the deadline then DFA'd him about a month later -- not sure what that was all about -- possible injury?  He's be another bench depth guys.

Not real impressed with the relief / pen guys available. Will Smith LH RP , maybe Addison Reed -- 

watching our good old pal Mr. High Wire, Francisco Rodney pitch for the Nats the other night reminds me that the pen arns out there are in short supply and low in quality, Of course, Francisco Rodney loaded the bases with walks before getting out of the inning. - how is he still on an MLB roster and in the playoffs no less??? Amazing.

here's my wish list: do whatever you think is best in FA, but don't F*ck up all the hard work you've done and trade either adell or marsh.

starring in the arizona fall league is a better indicator of major league success than being the #1 overall draft pick. both of these guys are killing the league this year. it would be a catastrophic mistake to let either one of these guys go. don't F*ck this up, eppler.

do the Halos pick up Calhoun's option -- that decision comes up quick - like within a week or so after the World Series ends.

I think NOT and then he could return but on a one year deal perhaps with a second year option.

I hope not, it needs to be renegotiated down.

Wishlist:

  • Hire Joe Maddon and one of Ray Searage/Jim Hickey for pitching coach
  • Sign Gerrit Cole or Stephen Strasburg for #1
  • Trade for, in no particular order, Syndergaard, Boyd, Teheran, Archer, or Ray for #2-#3
  • Sign Josh Donaldson for 3B, freeing up Fletcher/La Stella/Rengifo/Thaiss in a trade for above with a SP and Marsh/Adams
  • Sign or trade for a soon-to-be-non-tendered Mike Zunino for C, paired with whomever of Stassi/Smith/Bemboom
  • Sign Ivan Nova, Homer Bailey, Drew Smyly, or Matt Moore for super cheap to lock up #5

Realistic:

  • Sign one of the upper arms - this will happen - be it Cole, Strasburg, Bumgarner, Wheeler, Ryu, or Hamels, Odorizzi maybe in this group
  • Sign a mid-tier arm - more like Keuchel, Gibson, Roark, Miley, Wood, based on $$$ spent above
  • Trade for a nondescript arm, someone like Erik Swanson, for Taylor Ward or Jahmai Jones
  • Sign Ben Zobrist
  • Sign Jason Castro or Robinson Chirinos

Actually, Kendrick is a really interesting option. He is a great utility guy at this point in his career - 1B, 2B, 3B, LF.

He still rakes!

If Kendrick is still floating around late in the offseason after our other needs have been met I wouldn't be opposed to it. Right now Fletcher can play LF and every infield spot minus first and we have a surplus of players there. In my mind we can't throw money at a "nice to have" when there are deeper holes to fill.

I think there's a pretty strong chance the Angels will have to part with at least one of Fletcher, Thaiss, Rengifo, or La Stella in order to land one of the SPs they'll need, in which case, Kendrick would be a perfect one-year stopgap while other players develop or other options surface.
