Who in the world wouldn’t take Rendon/Bauer over just Cole? That’s like 12-14 WAR vs 6-7 WAR.

As much as I like Rendon, I’d rather have an ace pitcher.

I guess you miss the obvious point.  The objective is to win games.  If you are a catcher that is far better than the rest of the league, then you represent a way for a team to have a distinct advanta

But to answer your question, Rendon + Bauer is is a fine alternative to Cole alone, even though Cole is a better pitcher.

But if we replaced Cole money with Rendons money and we are still at least checking in on Bauer, then you’d have to assume that if we got Cole last year we’d be checking in on other high priced free agents this year.

Angels never really had a shot at Cole. The cost was prohibitive.

Even though we were led to believe that Cole wanted to "come home" and play in Anaheim.

We're seeing a similar scenario play out.

 

That's not the point of the question.  It's just a "which would you rather have?"

So if we did get Cole last year, then what FA would you sign?  Would we fill more gaps or go with 1 big FA?

Say we actually signed Cole last year which means no Rendon.

Would you rather have Cole, probably extended Simmons, Fletcher at 3b and possible Iglesias at 2B.

OR

Bauer, Rendon, Iglesias, Fletcher?

The latter.

Are you saying that Bauer is not coming to Anaheim? Or does not want to come here?

If the Angels had gotten Cole last year than they would probably be seriously in on Realmuto this year. So maybe think Cole/Realmuto vs Bauer/Rendon.

But Quintana/Suzuki is better than either. Edge: Minasian.

I’ll still take Rendon/Bauer over that. I find Relamuto a little overrated and Rendon gives us that steady bat in the middle of the order protecting Trout. Because at the end of the day Realmuto isn’t even in the same league hitting wise to Rendon.
