    • Kinda funny that Damon got paid the most of the two. Didn't see that coming.

        If you think that then SanDepoRicci will rock your world.

          I know Ricci.....nothing special.

          Lets see that trio dump a contract as bad as Vernons.

            He set your team up with all the talent you have now. Was he terrible at giving out contracts? Absolutely. Last, we don't have a contract THAT bad luckily. We have a lot of bad ones but nothing as bad as that.

            • The Angels can go ahead and acquire Zito now. Kthxbye.
              The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

The only major loss was Marcum and we have enough young depth to overcome that loss
                  I can't see their hitting philospohy equaling sustained success.

                  And while the Vernon trade was amazing, does it make them better this year? I'm not sure. It gives them huge financial flexibility but with what is left now in FA, you won't really see the benefits of that until next year.

                    I think it can be close.

                      The Angels insanely stupid philosophy has survived this long.

                        Yeah but they have played in the weakest AL division over the past 10 years with the largest payroll out West most years.

                          I don't really see why not to be honest.


                          Ya...the Vernon trade definately does hurt in the short term. Still think we are better than the O's though

                              What philosophy is that, exactly?

                              Anyway, as an Angels fan, I can't help but laugh at this. Reminds me of when they signed Gary Matthews Jr. Total joke. I'm sure the Jays would have just given them Wells and his albatross for free, but nope, Angels actually had to throw some value in there to give to the Jays. Wells most likely will be playing LF, which means the Halos traded to acquire a CORNER OFER who will provide a .260-.270 BA and 20-25 HR. How freakin common are those stats from a corner OFer in MLB today? Add in that they are paying 20+ million for that production for the next 4 years. Brutal
