In today's L.A. Times:
No God!!!! Please take Hatcher instead!!!
Seriously, this would be a huge loss. I give Stoneman a lot of credit for picking up mediocre or undervalued pitchers who perform well for the Angels, but Bud probably deserves a lot of credit, if not most. Conversly, Stoneman seems to struggle picking up hitters, however Hatcher probably deserves a large part of the blame. We cannot afford to lose the leader of the most consistent part of our ballclub over the last several years.
