    The TV guys are independent contracts of FSW, so Jose Mota actually may not be employed by the Angels but they have the decision making power. As for Terry Smith, I'd imagine that he's employed by the Angels since Arte Moreno owns AM830.

    Trendon reacted to Jeff Fletcher in OC Register: Angels GM Perry Minasian waits patiently for market to get moving   
    I have tried to get an idea of the extent to which any of those names are realistic and so far I’ve been unable to get further than the fact that they are involved.

    My feeling talking to Minasian is they have a lot of stuff out there, both trades and free agents, and he is waiting for the other side to say yes. 
     
    As long as there’s no deadline, it’s hard to justify giving up more than you want to give up so you can make a deal on Jan. 1 instead of Jan 25.
    Presumably Minasian is checking in often enough so if another team is about to intercede the Angels can see if they want to up their offer, but short of that you’re negotiating against yourself.

    Trendon got a reaction from Jinzu in OC Register: Angels GM Perry Minasian waits patiently for market to get moving   
    I think Minasian's comment about "things happen when they happen" is fine as long as he still accomplishes his goals that he had heading into the offseason by the time ST starts.
    If the Angels get the two starters, relievers, catcher, and outfield depth they need by ST, it doesn't matter what order it happened in.
    The problem is if the "things" that happen aren't what you wanted to happen because you waited to long.
     
    To me, it sounds like Minasian knows his options and is just waiting for things to come together. There are still options out there, so I don't think fans need to go into full panic mode yet. But if everyone starts to sign over the next few weeks and they've stood still, then panic.

    Same. And keeping him away from the A's (and potentially other AL West teams) is an added bonus.

    I really hope that the Angels continue to add to the bullpen. Astros have now added Baez and Stanek to their bullpen in the last week.

    Trendon got a reaction from Angel Oracle in A case against Trevor Bauer (and why he may be overrated)   
    I guess I should have worded my point better. Yeah, there are tons of options for the Angels to improve their rotation because Peters/Naughton/Suarez isn't a high bar to clear. I guess I'm more concerned with whether adding a Walker, Odorizzi, or some other middle of the rotation type pitcher would be enough to get them in the playoffs. The Angels need to make the playoffs, not just marginally improve. Perhaps it is enough if they add to the bullpen, add a catcher to supplement Stassi, and a right fielder, but I don't know if they have the room to make all those additions.
     
    (Like pretty much everyone, I didn't expect Bundy to turn out to be one of the better pitchers in the AL last season. Though I did expect him to be better than he was in Baltimore since he was getting out of the AL East and there seemed to be room for him to improve his pitch mix.)

    Trendon got a reaction from Angel Oracle in Victor Rojas Appreciation Thread: Resigns as Angels play by play announcer   
    Considering that the Angels seem to always disappoint us, I think the most likely move is that they move Terry Smith to TV PBP and have Jose Mota (or maybe Trent Rush) take over as Radio PBP.
    I'd prefer that they bring in someone new to replace Victor. I'd first try to poach some of the top up guys like Brian Anderson and Joe Davis, but I doubt that happens.
    After that, I would then turn to guys like Aaron Goldsmith in Seattle who have a part time gig, but not a full 162 game schedule. Those people might be attainable because they'd be the #1 guy instead of the backup/fill-in guy.
    If that goes nowhere, I think you then turn to former full time PBP guys who don't currently have full time PBP gigs. Such as Mario Impemba, Matt Vasgersian, and Rich Waltz.

    It will be interesting to see who replaces him. I hope they try and go with an up-and-comer who can be a long-term option. Like how the Dodgers went with Joe Davis once Vin Scully retired.

    Even if the Angels don't sign Sugano, it's probably in their best interest that Sugano signs with an MLB team because that would help eliminate a rotation need for another team.

    Trendon got a reaction from Angel Oracle in What is Minasian's plan?   
    I for sure would be if one or two of those starters was acquired via trade. It would make very little sense to trade prospects for a starter on a one year deal.
    If they were both free agents, I wouldn't be as upset, but I'd still be concerned. That would leave you with 4 starters scheduled to hit free agency after the season.

    That could be so but what @Second Basemakes sense. Keep in mind the Angels are as quiet as can be and we only hear about them when the actual player signs. 
    All the buzz has been for the Mets, Blue Jays, Red Sox and so on. Not a peep about the Angels other than the fact that we need pitching which means we're in the rumor for him. 
    I think he'd be stupid to not sign this year. He'll be 32 next year and who knows if he gets hurt or regresses with stats. His value is high now.
    If reports are true that he's in So-Cal then it's 2 options. 
    A: Hopping on ANA to go back to Japan 
    B: Finalizing deal tonight with Angels, pending physical (tomorrow), to then make official Thursday.

    My guess is Sugano knows what he wants at this point. The media will find out soon enough. Probably by this time tomorrow at the latest.
