    Hubs got a reaction from Angel Oracle in Where do we go from here?   
    Bemboom has an option so he will likely start in Salt Lake if Stassi is healthy. If they signed another catcher Stassi would likely be moved in a trade.
    They do need a outfielder, likely left handed, who can play all three OF spots on a 1 or 1+1 deal.

    No, it proved that Ben Cherington and the Pirates got screwed again. The other trades this offseason have been dead on.
    For the record I wouldn’t give up that for Castillo or Marquez. If they wanted to build a deal around Detmers and Adell ok, but I can’t see them Taking such a low value. Gotta keep Two OF. If taking on A Moustakas or a Blackmon deal made it easier to part with their Ace, then I would Do it, but I still don’t think they have enough.

    I was a Trevor Bauer or bust guy. But now I think getting a Musgrove or Gray and Mid tier starter like Quintana, Paxton, Walker or Richards gives them depth. Get a reliever for a Claudio contract. Then getting a guy like Joc and call it an offseason.
    If you can get any of the free agents for say 2/18 say with incentives and pay 7/11 then you can get Gray, another starter, and Joc for like 25 million in 2021.

    Hubs got a reaction from Angel Oracle in More pitchers coming off the board, are you worried yet?   
    They have Sandoval and Pena to fill in in that case if they need to. It’s not ideal, obviously but how many starts are we talking? I’d like two starters for depth but I’m happy with one and more minor league depth signings, cuz honestly where are you going to put everyone?

    Hubs got a reaction from OhtaniSan in Angels sign Kurt Suzuki (1 year, $1.5 million)   
    This doesn't take us out of the Contreras sweepstakes, as Cubs need a Catcher and may want Stassi back in any Contreras deal. Something like Contreras (28.3 BTV) and Davies (0.5 BTV) for Stassi (2.4), Adams (15.9), Suarez (5.6), Thaiss (3.3) and Barretto (0.9). 28.8 to 28.1 so close value.
    But I'm happy with Stassi/ Suzuki for 2021.

    I actually ran a simulation and it’s very difficult to manage Bauer on three days rest and Ohtani on six. You often have to have a spot starter because no one from the regular rotation rest guys will be available.
     
    You can maneuver it so that Bauer doesn’t often pitch on Sunday, bumping Ohtani I assume but with days off he’s often gonna go on 4 days rest just so the other three or four guys get starts on somewhat consistent rest.

    There is only one choice.
     Although he has someone interested in some white walls on the other line and may have to get back with the Angels.

    Hubs got a reaction from Angel Oracle in How many innings for Ohtani in 2021   
    I don't think he goes every 6th day, I think he goes once a week. I think they'll let him get to 6 IP, but not much longer.
    I think 20 starts is a good high end. That has him skipping two to start the year, staying in extended ST, or just hitting, depending on how his ST goes.
    Then he'll get 10 starts on Sundays before the All Star Break, and then likely will get a month off or so, unless everything is smooth. They also could skip one here or there, there are 15 Sundays before the break. They will either go with a 5-man rotation in those weeks-- or allow Barria, Sandoval, or Suarez to get those starts.
    Then after the break, he'll get 10 starts on Sundays. (there are 11 Sundays they play after the break, I have him skipping the last one in order to get ready for the Playoffs).
    This schedule is similar to the one they followed in 2018, which you'd have to assume is what they'll try again.
    They don't have as many Mondays off as in 2018, they have a lot of Thursday's off, so maybe he's the Wednesday Starter.
    That works similarly as there are 21 Wednesdays they Play, and if he skipped one, they'd still be on track for 20 starts.
    Everyone else would get around 28 starts, if healthy.
    It also maximizes his DH time.

    Canning will be the best of the three starters that finished the season in the rotation for the Angels in 2020 and are still Projected to be in the rotation. Meaning he’ll be better than Bundy and Heaney. If not in 2021, then def in 2022. 

    I think he’s a future Ace. Garrett Richards was the closest thing we had to an Ace before his Injury since Weaver’s peak. He also struggled a bit in his first seasons before his excellent 2014. Canning has been better and has started more games than Richards did in 2011-2013.
    I can’t believe Richards is almost 33. 
    Anyway, my point is canning is not a swing man and he won’t be bumped out of the rotation.
