    Honestly I'm very mixed with him. I love him if he's paired with someone like Bauer. If he's paired with someone like Odorizzi or less then It's typical Angels.

    I wrote this in the Ohtani topic and I think it applies here-
     
    People are freaking out about the 800k difference and whether that Shohei is worth the 3.3 million or 2.5. But many seem confused about how the arbitration system works....
     
    Understand- it is the only the midpoint of the arbitration figures that matter. In the arbitration process, all Ohtani’s reps need to argue is is Shohei worth over 2.9 (the midpoint). That can be over a dollar over. If the arbitrator rules that Ohtani is worth over $1 over the 2.9, then he is awarded 3.3. If the arbitrators rule that he is under that under that amount, he gets only the 2.5.  The number Ohtani’s side is intentionally too high.  
     
    In addition a benefit to the arbitration process too is also to allow more time for extending a multi year contract if the team is willing to do that.  
     
    Trust the process. I know the slow offseason has everyone panicking that we haven't received any starting pitching and this is another thing to bash Angels management about, but just calm down.

    I'm not sure that the Reds "need to unload Gray." It sounds like they are open to dealing him in the right deal and are listening to offers, but it doesn't sound like they NEED to trade him.
    I also think there are more teams out there that still need and will still spend/acquire pitching. The Twins come to mind as one team. I'm not quite sure that they are going to get a discount.

    Ohtani doesn't deserve special treatment. Maybe if he starts actually contributing then we can talk about keeping him "happy" but right now he's just a guy.

    It just means that many of my sources don’t work for the Angels any more. And I still haven’t had a chance to build a rapport with the new hires.

    from my recollection, and i'm virtually 100% on this, the angels have 3 of the largest contracts in mlb right now in pujols, trout, and rendon, and no other team has more than two. perhaps that's changed, but it was true very recently. when or if the angels sign bauer or realmuto, then they would likely have four. it's a very unfair criticism of arte to lay spending as one of his faults. criticizing bad spending is not the same argument.
