    The Official 2017-2018 Hot Stove Thread

    He's right about 1% of the time so it felt "noteworthy" to include here.

    Per Jim Bowden, the Angels are one of numerous teams showing interest in Yu Darvish. Won't cost a draft pick but his signing would put the club right up against the luxury tax threshold.

    Josh Donaldson + Cesar Hernandez = Great Lineup

    His 2017 line(.265/.362/.439) was almost identical to his career line(.271/.342/.437) and he's been a 2+ win player every year in his career. The injury and age concern is real but his game isn't really declining at all. A 2/22 type deal is totally fair for him.
  5. Would I take Profar as the utility guy going into 2018? 100% Would I bank on him being a productive everyday 2B? Absolutely not. Yes, he's a former top prospect but he's done jack squat in the majors. At some point, you have to produce.

    Healy managed to slug 25 home runs yet finish with a league average batting line(.271/.302/.451, 100 wRC+). For comparison, C.J. Cron last year: 248/.305/.437, 99 wRC+ Given that Healey will play 1B full time in Seattle, the M's just essentially traded for C.J. Cron with a bit more club control.
  7. I wouldn't be opposed to Morrison if they upgraded elsewhere but: 1st half 2017: .258/.367/.564, 143 wRC+ 2nd Half 2017: .231/.333/.452, 112 wRC+ Career: .245/.330/.443, 109 wRC+ It's possible he made some real changes but I'm a bit worried that his first half of 2017 is an outlier.

    Does Longoria Make Sense

    Hmmm. That changes things a bit. I wouldn't be surprised if he was worth that contract in the end but I'm not comfortable taking that risk given he just tanked offensively in his age 31 season. This could be his new norm now.

    Does Longoria Make Sense

    5/67 isn't a bad deal, even for his age 32-36 seasons. However, his offense fell below the league average line last year for the first time and you have to wonder about his overall game heading in the wrong direction. Longoria is someone I thought about last offseason but he didn't pop in my mind until now. I think he's an interesting player to acquire considering the contract price would drive the prospect price down.

    Where is the interest in Hosmer?

    Hosmer has had 3 good/above average MLB seasons and 3 replacement level seasons. 4/75 is something I'd maybe consider but anything more than that looks to be disastrous. There's such a huge surplus of 1B this offseason(Santana, Morrison, Alonso, etc) that overpaying for Hosmer makes little sense.

    Shohei Otani is on a very different level than any other pitchers that have came over in recent years. He could be a top 10 starter in baseball right off the bat. This will be fun to monitor. Lots of buzz about him going to Texas so let's hope that isn't the case.

    Stanton wants out if they rebuild

    Highly doubt he ends up here but if Upton opts out, it's a pretty good fallback plan. The question I had before and still have now is how much prospect currency is this going to cost? That contract is still likely an albatross in the end and the Marlins will want prospects as well. Finding that middle ground with the Marlins will prove to be highly difficult for any team trying to acquire Stanton.
  13. The thought of that top of the lineup makes me extremely happy but there's zero chance for that happening. Heck, I'll take just Hernandez and Santana and be happy with those 2 slotted at the top of the order.
  14. Alex Cobb would be a guy I'd personally target. He could give this team 150-175 league average-ish innings and I don't think he'll cost a ton. Angels have been bitten in the ass too many times the past few years to just assume Richards, Heaney, Skaggs, Ramirez and Shoemaker will be fine heading into 2018. Add a legit rotation arm if it fits into the offseason plans.

    Top 50 Angels Prospects(

    Those first two points are reasons why I initially had him. But he played very few games in college and I think he's just so far behind the curve that it's going to take a lot of refining to just advance in the minors. I'm encouraged by the high walk totals and overall production though. I just want to see a bit more. You can make the case for him being in there because I had 20-30 guys fighting for the last 10 or so spots.
