2013 Stats for Pitchers the Angels let get away


Recommended Posts

Alex Torres (traded in Scott Kazmir deal): 0.29 ERA, valuable piece of Rays pen.


Patrick Corbin (traded in Dan Haren deal): 12-2, 2.24 ERA for D'Backs.


Tyler Skaggs (traded in Dan Haren deal): 5.35 ERA, but still just 21.


Tyler Chatwood (traded in Chris Iannetta deal): 2.48 ERA for Colorado.


Will Smith (traded in Alberto Callaspo deal): 3.86 ERA in majors (2.88 in minors)


Donn Roach (traded in Ernesto Frieri deal): 3.76 ERA in minors.


Johnny Hellweg (traded in Zach Greinke deal): Struggled in Majors, 2.47 ERA in minors.


Ariel Pena (traded in Zach Grienke deal): 4.06 ERA in AA.


Joe Saunders (traded in Dan Haren deal): 4.48 ERA in Seattle.


Ervin Santana (traded for minor leaguer Brandon Sisk): 3.06 ERA for KC.


Darren o'Day (let leave): 2.20 ERA for Orioles in pen.


Matt Harvey (2007 third round pick, failed to sign). Angels offered $1M for a third round pick, but Scott Boras was the reason he didn't sign, as they wanted Porcello money ($7 M plus) and he slipped out of the first round. He started the NL All-Star game as a Met. Now, if not for the animosity between Eddie Bane and Tony Reagins, it's possible they sign the kid. Not for $7M but what if they offered 4.5? It was a mistake by Reagins. They lucked out and got a first round talent in the third round, after not having a first round pick that year, and didn't make it happen.




I know they don't have a Crystal Ball, but consistently trading away young talent, losing first round picks as compensation for FA signings, as well as promoting young players, has taken the first overall minor league system to the last overall minor league system. They have had success here, but teams like the Rays seem to do so much better and they've consistently been winners too…just don't get it.

I can't believe people bring up the Haren trade. I don't remember anyone being upset about it ESPECIALLY losing Corbin!


Well, they were likely drowned out by the people singing the praises of the GM that wasn't afraid to make deal unlike Stoneman, but there were definitely people who were in on Corbin from day one.  


His success this year has exceeded even the rosiest of projections for him, but there was definitely more than one person upset that both he AND Skaggs were included in the deal.
