Kinsler claimed...

You pick up Kinsler then you lose Cowart ... no need to go there

On second thought maybe they should ... having Kinsler and Yescobar batting somewhere between 1-6 would impact our lineup. 

I wouldn't be surprised if Eppler made the claim.

Escobar is injured and he's supposed to be 2-3 weeks.

That said, if he keeps wearing that man purse on one side it may put further strain on his oblique and extend his time on the DL.

Speaking of Escobar, I'm trying to see a silver lining in his slash line and offensive production since he's below average defensively at 3B.

Nope, still can't find anything...  .274/.333/.397 with just 7 HR and 1 SB.

Putting Kinsler at 2b and sliding Cowart to 3B would be a great move if it's only a salary dump for Detroit.

I wonder what claiming Kinsler would do to payroll/luxury...where do the Angels currently sit in regards to being over the threshold?

Kinsler might not be a bad pickup, though I think you'd need to add an additional starter and probably a left handed bat if the Angels were really going "all in" on the WC spot. If they weren't over the threshold...that would certainly push them over.

Look all you want but the reality is Yescobar will play over Cowart when he returns if Kinsler gets claimed by Eppler. 

Don't shoot the messenger

Is that what you think is right or is that what you think Sosh will do. 

If it's the latter fine. If it's the prior, then you just.....

I think I read he's only owed like 3 million for the remainder of the season.

I understand that, I just seem to recall that the Halos were pretty close to being over the threshold...though in February they were about 10 million under. Not sure if there were any significant additions to that number. Maybe @Jeff Fletcher can chime in at some point. He gets paid to know that kind of stuff!

I don't like the guy, but he would be an upgrade and I will take him.  

LOL, what would not be an upgrade at this point?

People keep mentioning his great defense at 2B.  You know who else has great defense at second?  Espinosa.

His 5 million buy-out next year would be better used on an actual good player.

I'm guessing Milwaukee. They were after him before the non-waiver deadline

That Pujols line is tough to read.

Jeff, Arte always says he'd go over the threshold "for the right player".  Do you see that happening soon?

If we did, I would message board punch Eppler in the junk.
