And you know they will use Wood and Maeda along with their 3 youngsters in some mini rotation within their rotation.

I've not been upset over "missing out" on Ryu or Keuchel -- but these are the sorts of deals I was hoping the Angels would have made...

Looks like they'll run:

Kershaw

Buehler

Maeda

Wood

Nelson

 

with Urias either in the bullpen, or replacing Wood or Nelson if they suck.  Also have May in the minors who will end up nabbing a spot midseason.

I mean I thought Eppler would add 1 more starter. 

maybe not 

he’s done. Time for pitchers and catchers to report 

I honestly don't think he is done.  I think we will get one more pitching booster shot before spring training begins, and likely a veteran starting pitcher, or maybe a veteran long reliever.

True that

Those 5 years Maddon referred to with him and Eppler at his presser, very much depends on Angels making playoffs this year...

It's all relative to how they perform for me

Would you extend him if all the pitching choices he made tank but the offense and kiddie-corps pitchers bail them out?   Do you fire him if they all do well, win 93 games but miss the playoffs?

He needs to prove last year's FA bustapalooza was an aberration ...

Yeah it's not a "Playoffs or nothing" situation with Eppler. As IP said, they could win 93-94 games and still miss out. 

They have to take a huge step forward though. And if Bundy and Teheran prove to be total busts then Arte might get rid of him regardless of what happens.
