The Angels reportedly have decided not to present an offer to free agent Mark Teixeira's agent, Scott Boras, before their two-week window of exlusivity closes on Friday the Los Angeles Times and MLB.com reported.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Angels have been informed by Boras that bids will be accepted on Teixeira from other clubs no matter what they offer, and they don't want to help drive the bidding with an initial proposal.
The Angels are expected to make a run at CC Sabathia, with A.J. Burnett also a possibility. The club has varying levels of interest in their other five free agents: Francisco Rodriguez, Garret Anderson, Darren Oliver, Jon Garland and Juan Rivera.
Crap. We will have given Casey Kotchman up for nothing...
What happens if we land both CC and AJ? CC will take garland's spot since he's most likely departing. But whose spot does AJ take? It's gonna get crowded in the pitching rotation specially with Kelvim coming back next year.
I'll miss Krod I won't lie, but he's not worth top closer money, he wants a contract bigger than Rivera's . One thing I won't miss for sure are his near heart attacks he gives me everytime he comes in to close, I don't think I've seen Frankie for 1-2-3 more than 5 times (no not just this season).
On other notes, Angels seem to be interested in Manny.
The only reason I would want to get Manny so that I can make fun of the Dodgers.
Face it, he's in his declining years, the contract he wants is huge amount of money, I rather use that money and sign Tex and another SP, and also spend that money to lock up other good players that we have. But signing Tex has to be priority #1, he's a great player, I didn't even know he was that good even after watchi Angels vs. Rangers so many times.
