    Yes, the Angels are interested in a good starting pitcher. Bang up job there Morosi. Now collect your money.

    Upton for Price straight up is a bad deal for the Angels. Sure it's trading from strength to fill weakness but you have to think Upton is a far better bet going forward than Price while being owed less money.

    Had to read thru this Moose thread to make sure it wasn't the one from last year....or the year before.

    The yearly earnings for this contract is essentially what Wheeler could get with a backloaded contract. If it comes down to one or the other, I'm taking Wheeler all day.

    MLBTR had him getting a 4/68 deal. If the Angels signed him for 4/73, most posters here would be commenting that he only got 5 million more than what the "experts" thought and that the Halos got a great catcher at a great deal. Since they didn't sign him, the White Sox overpaid and will come to regret it. Gotta love the spin on these fan forums. I don't recall any of the posters here that are bagging on the Sox stating what they would pay for Grandal and at what price Eppler should walk away from.

    Good God if we finish SECOND to Wheeler and Cole in the FA sweepstakes I don't think there's enough water in the world to put out the fire here and save this place from total destruction.

    if they take away the comp pick, maybe they'll remove the loss of a draft pick for the team that signs Cole.

    Expect a big trade soon

    Every single trade proposal that includes Zack Cozart is just plain funny to me. I understand the context of each proposal, but they're all, still very funny to me.

    Adding to that, if we did sign both Cole and Ryu, Id like to claim ownership of the phrase "Cole and Seoul".

    Barr's expressed concern over this is a complete facade. He could have made sure Epstein was held in a much more secure manner, if that was of importance to him. It wasn't. A lot of people very likely wanted Epstein dead, including our current president, a past president and Epstein himself. This is all for show.

    Not to mention the Maddon connection again with Archer. I almost guarantee we'll land at least one player this offseason either because Maddon has extensive history with them or he convinced them to come here.

    If were looking for a bat it absolutely is a secret. Everything I've read is 2 pitchers and possible a catcher, and not an expensive offensive catcher either. Pretty sure we are standing pat on position players other than the catcher.

    Trump's Trade War

    I don't think he's left or right but more of an opportunist. Whatever benefits him or his polls is what he wants.

    If the Angels fail to sign Cole or Stras then maybe signing Wheeler, Ryu and trading for a starter(Boyd, Ray etc.) is the way to go. A staff of Wheeler, Ryu, Ohtani, Boyd, Heaney and Canning should be light years better than last year. It would look a lot better if Cole was their number 1 though.

    Pretty much anything from Robles. But I'll go with his 4.69 K/BB ratio. This might be the cleanest of peanuts. Dude might be an almond.

    I hate all these. Just sign Cole/Stras and Wheeler and keep Adell.

    If the Angels trade for that I'm going to be really pissed.

    After we sign the necessary pitching we need, then it’s time to take a look at position players. Until that happens, Moustakis discussions are a non-starter for me.

    Finding Value in Free Agency...

    that would actually be a good thing. then we could focus on Cole, get him done and still have a ton of options for that second guy. I don't think it will happen though. Cole is in a completely different bracket in terms of price. I think wheeler is going to move very quick and set the secondary market early. Bumgarner will be this years Keuchel unless he takes 3 years.

    To piggyback IP (sorry about the weight!), and again I hate to sound overdramatic, but I think this is right next to the black sox scandal. Obviously one was to win, the other to lose. But both were to make money, and tainted a WS. And like Sean Regan said, ai dont see how this is less than Pete Rose. Rose in essence did insider trading... he used inside knowledge to bet. But there was never (unless Im wrong) any evidence he played any role in the bets, as far as the outcome of any game. To be fair, everyone cheats. Everyone steals signs. This goes way beyond that. Was it houston who hacked St Louis, or vice versa?

    It means that rather than buying cars from manufactures that refuse to meet CA standards they will instead purchase cars from manufactures that simply lie about it.

    The year before he was traded Wells had one if not the worst contracts in baseball. After having one of the 3 best seasons of his career at age 31 someone in the FO thought he was worth acquiring. On the bright side that trade probably led to some of the best threads over the years considering who they traded for him.

    Yes. 4 years of Wheeler for a 3rd round pick and no loss of international pool funds.
