I guess he just likes the Angels...Wikipedia says he signed a one day contract to retire as an Angel so good for him and the halos

Well hello, Milwaukee.
 just signed Lorenzo Cain.

5 years, $80m for a defensive centerfielder entering his age 32 season with not great power?

Will this deal open the floodgates and end the collusion talk?

Probably for position players.  If a 32 year old can get 5 years, Martinez, Moustakas and Hosmer should be alright.

No idea what it means for Darvish and Arrieta though.

It is $126 million for six years...incentives could drive it up to $150 million

Darvish is 31 and a half years old right now

The Cubs are praying for two great seasons from him and an opt out, otherwise, they're going to regret it greatly half way through the deal.

The top four remaining free agents are now J.D. Martinez, Eric Hosmer, Jake Arrieta and Mike Moustakas all of whom are clients of Scott Boras.

Is this about collusion or are people finally tired of Boras?

Next year is going to be AWESOME.

"Let's put it this way - it's always on our mind." - Angels owner Arte Moreno on extending Mike Trout who's signed through 2020.

Maybe I should have put this in the Nats or O's thread.

6-man rotation?  Pujols shares DH and plays in the field again?  Either way I'm stoked.

Wanna blow your mind?  This guy broke down three scenarios for the Angels to deal with Ohtani.  If nothing else read the Flex Schedule Scenario.

Quote
I have three possibilities: stick to the traditional 5-man rotation and force Ohtani to deal with it...Install a straight 6-man rotation and force the rest of the LAA staff to deal with it...or install a flex system that changes the number of days rest between starts.

Part One: Flex System
Part Two: Straight 6-Man Rotation
Part Three: 5 Man Rotation

I'd be shocked if he lasts the entire year as both a starting pitcher and hitter..... my prediction is that they eventually choose one or the other depending on how he's doing..... I could easily be wrong, but in any case, it's gonna be pretty interesting to watch.....

Dammit. I saw the CJ Cron to Tampa deal and hoped it was for Odorizzi.

Instead, the Twins got Odorizzi and the Angels got a PTBNL.   

The Rays had a plan.  What were the Angels clearing salary for?

UPDATE: and the Twins move Pineda to 60 day DL.  Desperation move...
