If Haren, Greinke and now Santana don't come back, that's a shit load of money, almost 40 million off the books.

Add in Hunter, that is 55+ million dollars.

Angels got literally nothing back.

Scioscia getting his way. He wants a bullpen to burn the shit out of the way he used K-rod and Shields for 2+ innnigs creating saves for Percival. Dude only knows one way to win. Never mind those relievers like Shields and K-Rod were rare, having 2 of them at the same time even more. They're still trying to make some ace bullpen over there.

But I want the Sox to trade for Ike Davis, bring Ross and Ortiz back and then get Hunter for a 2 year deal. That would put a decent to good bat at every position besides SS, and I think Lester and Buchholz should be a lot better. Doubront is alright, Lackey as a 4/5 would be better than nothing (or maybe not) and then maybe find a low risk/high potential starter or let De La Rosa have a real shot.
Wouldn't it be easier/better to sign Napoli instead? Victor took 4/50 from the Tigers. That's a1B/DH player better than Youk's corpse.

Starting pitching is expensive anyway. Their value was tied into short term deals. If it goes wrong, it's not a catastrophe. The Angels problem is holding onto shit like Bourjos too long. Other teams will pay for defense at positions like CF, SS, C. They can replace him with a cheap minor league free agent. What the hell is the point of saving him on a roster with 3 better/more expensive OF blocking him on the roster? Use him to free up cash or get a better 3b. Either would be more valuable than a 4th OF with awesome defense.

The Angels have just traded Dan Haren to the Cubs for Carlos Marmol

link

Interesting to say the least.

Kind of shocked all the Angels got was Carlos freaking Marmol. Solid trade for the Cubs.

DiPoto has made some questionable trades since becoming GM of the Halos.

I guess this trade is not happening, the Cubs backed out of the trade.

that is somewhat typical for the Mariners, they don't really care about the product they put out there as long as they make $$$. With attendance becoming an I can see why they would want to sign a big name, but it definitely would eat into their profit margins.

The Mets have released Jason Bay.

They will still have to pay him the remaining 21 million dollars left on his contract.

I can't imagine how the Cubs front office looks when they start making deals. Seem like an unsure bunch seeing as how the trade fell through with Atlanta and Dempster too.

Trevor Bauer rumored on the trading block. Ploy to make him fall in line or has his value really dropped this far?
