    eligrba got a reaction from Angel Oracle in Blake Snell is on the market   
    Something must not be right with Snell which is why Tampa is shopping him.  I still have nightmares about the last talented Tampa pitcher the Angels traded for.  I could be wrong, but I can't remember the last time Tampa traded away a talented pitcher who pitched just as well with their new team as they did with Tampa.

    Worth noting that the Angels began working on this deal before Minasian was hired. 
     
    Obviously he could have nixed it once he took over, so he certainly approved it, but it wasn’t his idea.

    I think it'll be interesting to see what Perry makes of Heaney and Bundy.
    Heaney's ERA seldom reflects his actual performance. He gets bitten by the big inning bug, but on the whole, he appears to be a pitcher you can envision going 190 linings a year with lots of K's, not many walks. Perhaps someday that ERA will drop down into the 3.75 range where I envision it. Obviously ERA isn't the be all end all here.
    As far as Bundy goes, everything about his breakout last season passes the eye test. And the periphs suggest it's not only sustainable, but he might actually have the ability to improve upon it. If he comes in next year and does it again, you know the Angels won't let him get away, and given that his breakout occurred here with Callaway, I have to think there may be some mutual interest in an extension, particularly if the Angels start winning next year.

    Why are people excited about the hiring of people underneath Minasian? I thought the only way for the Angels to win is with a President of Baseball Operations?

    I understood your point but disagree.  You can easily improve the pitching staff without moving Adell or Marsh.  Will you get a front line starter?  No, but I think you have PTSD from how poor of a job Eppler did relative to what can be done or what has been done by other teams by avoiding absolute disasters.  
    You don't have to replace absolutely awful with an all-star.   Sometimes solid is ok and a substantial improvement.

    It's actually what most GM's do.  The good ones are just better at it.  Most guys with a pulse can sign a guy for 200+ mil or gut their farm for a top guy.  That's usually pretty obvious once you decide to do it.  
    It's all the rest of the stuff that really matters.  The little stuff.  
    Ironically enough, the Braves actually had starting pitching that was as bad as the halos in 2020.  By most accounts it was actually worse.  Their defense was just about as bad.  And their offense was only a couple wins better.  Their pen was a shade better by WAR and FIP but a full run better by ERA.  
    The two teams really weren't that different.  In fact, I personally don't feel like the Braves had more talent than the Angels.  Yet they finished 9 games better.  Was it luck?  Honestly, I have no idea.

    We have signed 11 since he took over:
    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/transactions/#month=11&year=2020&team_id=108
    So I'd say that qualifies for a flurry.  Sure, a number of those guys probably won't see the MLB, but if you read up on their profiles, a number of them seem to be AAAA or MLB bench-type qualify players.  While that's certainly not exciting, we've had problem spots before due to not having MLB-quality talent at certain positions, so I appreciate the attempt to at least improve our floor.

    I would prefer to have Walsh play and have a productive season.  At this point. Pujols is simply a tax on the Angels for being stupid.
