Angel Pitching Situation

We are not as deep as you may think.

I see a lot of talk about the Angels needs in the offseason and I agree with a lot of them.

# 1 - We need a regular 3rd Basemen.
# 2 - We need to protect Vlad.  Hopefully 1 and 2 will go together.  A-Rod or Cabrera are the obvious solutions.
# 3 - We need another starter.  

I would prefer we trade for Miguel Cabrera (as stated in previous posts).  Negotiate a deal with him ahead of time say for $13 - $16M per year.  We would still have money to go after another starter and then we would be set.

So who do we trade?  That is up for debate.  I wouldn't mind a package of Adenhart, Wood and Figgins for Cabrera.  The guy is only 24 and will hit 30+ HR for the next 7 or 8 years.

Some of you may not agree with me regarding the need for another starter, but here is our rotation as it stands now.

# 1 - John Lackey: Obviously no problem here.
# 2 - Jered Weaver: Again.. no problem
# 3 - Kelvim Escobar: Solid as can be.
# 4 - Ervin Santana: Huge question mark!
# 5 - Joe Saunders: Remains to be seen

Honorable mention: Moseley (spot starter at best).  Adenhart (needs more time).

So what happens when Ervin can't pitch on the road or Joe Saunders struggles?

I agree we have a great trio of starters at the top, but would like to add a veteran who can eat innings at the end of the rotation.  Kyle Lohse or Livan Hernandez would be nice.

Oh.. and the D-Rays are dangling Scott Kazmir.  What about a package of K-Rod, Figgins and Wood?

Other FA options for the Angels:

Hunter.. who else?
