From a Sam Blum article on the Athletic:

The issue is that the vast majority of the Angels’ money is invested in players who are either hurt or playing elsewhere. Of the $180 million being spent, a little less than $30 million accounts for active Angels players, per Sportrac. That’s including $5 million on pitcher Alex Cobb, who only just returned a week ago after missing months with a wrist injury.

Stoneman was a shrewd, savvy GM. As a former player (pitched two no hitters) he knew about the subtle intangibles that factor into being a good major leaguer. Obviously stats are important, but he managed in an era before the obsession with numbers took over. Scouting, observation, psychology, relationships are important factors in both finding good young players and making trades. There really haven't been many former players who have become general managers. Not many can adapt, have the requisite skill set or have the patience to work their way up the ladder. But Stoneman had a very thorough background on the field and beyond. 

His only downside was being too adverse to trading a prospect.

But I much rather have him than what they’ve had since 2008.

Pujols is off the books in 3 games.

Upton is off the books in 165 games.

No more excuses to refrain from acquiring solid enough pitching!
