Before anyone accuses me of being a GA-apologist I’ll just acknowledge, in advance, that I’m guilty as charged.
That being said, I still think people are a bit extreme in their opinions regarding G.A. How can GA not be among the top 50 available free agents? Seriously.
Even I can admit that there are plenty of better options for the Angels, or any team, in the outfield when it comes to available free agents. It seems dubious, though, for ESPN to not include a name like GA on its list of 50 free agents.
GA’s not a better free agent option than Felipe Lopez or Greg Zaun? What gives? Complaints about GA are often valid but, really, are we to believe that the guy won’t be signed before some of the guys on this list?
