Angels Must Sign Brian Wilson This Offseason


Recommended Posts

He ain't gonna close for the Raviners, not with Jansen dominating there.

Frieri is really good when on, BUT he's not in Jansen's class and he has too many blow ups for a closer. The Beard has extensive closing experience, yet will only be 32 in 2014.

This pen seriously needs a leader. The Beard is that man, and WON'T cost a draft pick OR players!

The Beard, Frieri, DDLR, Burnett, Coello, Kohn = good potential pen. And Morin is just half a season away in all likelihood.

He's constantly hitting 94 and throws pitches to either side of the plate well with good movment, and with a 0.89 WHIP and 0.73 ERA in 12.1 innings, he seems to be getting back to where he will need to be in 2014.     

He won't cost any players or draft picks.


What's not to like?


Same thing with Tanaka (no players or draft picks lost)

I think they do need a closer. Frieri, Burnett, Kohn, Jepsen, De La Rosa, Coello…is a solid pen. But adding a closer with attitude like Brian Wilson, is not a bad choice. 


I think Williams is going to go to a team who will guarantee him a starting spot. I doubt the Angels tender him a contract. I also think he may be a free agent. 


Williams started 24 games for the Angels this year. He wants a starting spot. He doesn't want to be the long man. As he began his career at age 21, then really struggled between ages 24-28, and was out of baseball for a time, I have trouble understanding the fact that he is still under club control 10 years after starting his career. I think he's going to be a free agent, and if not, he'll be non-tendered.
