    closers? not hardly. also, cozart's contract is ruining this team? i understand you're trying to make a dividing line between a 5 year contract and a ten year contract, but cozart as your example? on the first year of his 3 year deal? the dude makes 12.6 million per. in baseball terms, that's not even a crazy number. carlos santana is making like over 20.

    for a million dollars, i couldn't have told you who the angels 2018 first round pick was. i forgot all about him.

    i apologize. i looked right through that, and it certainly explains the incongruity.

    do you want a guy giving us a 4.50+ era for the next three years locked into the rotation? i don't. i would have done the morton deal though, but it might not have been a possibility.
  5. he's saying dipoto has done a good job of freeing up money, but that the team will suck now.

    this quote here and your previous quote don't mean the same thing. you said, if the angels have upcoming flexibility and "their" guy is available now, that's when you get your guy. being "one guy" away and "building through FA" don't correlate.

    answer: there is no pitcher getting a machado contract. corbin was the big fish and he blew everyone's minds at 140. machado is getting double that. the only other FA getting a machado contract is harper.
  8. that was an impressive display of LH power.

    i disagree with this thinking. not taking a shot at you, but i think that's basic level strategic planning. this board is operating on incomplete information, we don't have any idea what the plans are. the basic principal of investing is trying to make the best judgement in timing on what and when.

    which FA pitcher is getting a machado contract?
  11. i've been wondering this for a bit now, too. some of the things eppler has been saying. some of the machado/harper speculation. if the angels knew that they were getting out from under pujol's contract, now would be the time to grab your guy. after one year, it doesn't affect your payroll at all, generally speaking.
  12. they have to. there is zero upside to putting this out there publicly. in a larger market, they would be bringing this up to pujols immediatly for comment.
