Remaining Free Agents

Here is what's left. This is from ESPN.com with what I cleaned up. The statement is always made, "We're always looking to make our club better..." So my opinion is simple with a little input for some. Would they make us better.

 

Bobby Abreu, RF - Free Agent (A) - NY Yankees - Yes for his ability to hit in the 2 hole.

 

Moises Alou, LF - Free Agent (B) - NY Mets - No.

 

Garret Anderson, LF - Free Agent (B) - LA Angels - I'm sorry GA. You’d make us better right now, but we just can't ask you to come back.

 

Luis Ayala, RP - Free Agent (B) - NY Mets - I believe we're set in the pen.

 

Denny Bautista, RP - Free Agent - Pittsburgh - Same as above.

 

Joe Beimel, RP - Free Agent (B) - LA Dodgers – Same as above.

 

Matt Belisle, SP - Free Agent - Cincinnati - Same as above.

 

Emil Brown, LF - Free Agent - Oakland - No.

 

Paul Byrd, SP - Free Agent (B) – Boston – No.

 

Orlando Cabrera, SS - Free Agent (A) - Chicago Sox – He makes us better right away, but I can’t see the Angels asking him to come back… especially after the trade was awash.

 

Bartolo Colon, SP - Free Agent - Boston - No. 

 

Alex Cora, SS - Free Agent - Boston - No.

 

Craig Counsell, 3B - Free Agent - Milwaukee - No.

 

Joe Crede, 3B - Free Agent - Chicago Sox - No, you would hinder Wood's growth.

 

Juan Cruz, RP - Free Agent (A) - Arizona - No.

 

Adam Dunn, LF - Free Agent (A) - Arizona - Absolutely. I'd do the deal today.

 

Ray Durham, 2B - Free Agent - Milwaukee - No.

 

David Eckstein, SS - Free Agent - Arizona - It would be great to have you back and I suppose it could happen if Figgins was dealt along with Aybar/Izturis. You could be our leadoff hitter again and a fan favorite. However, highly unlikely.

 

Jim Edmonds, CF - Free Agent - Chicago Cubs - Always remember "The Catch", but our relationship has run it's course.

 

Cliff Floyd, DH - Free Agent - Tampa Bay - Left handed DH fits our need, but I can't see him as an Angel. Nor, would I want him.

 

Eric Gagne, RP - Free Agent (B) - Milwaukee - Haha.... no.

 

Freddy Garcia, SP - Free Agent - Detroit - Could be a nice low risk option for the 5th slot in the rotation.

 

Nomar Garciaparra, SS - Free Agent - LA Dodgers - I'd take you for what Quinlan does. Ship Q, and bring in Nomar. Great back-up.

 

Jon Garland, SP - Free Agent (B) - LA Angels - I love the workhorse mentality, but you don't make us better.

 

Tom Glavine, SP - Free Agent - Atlanta – Another veteran lefty... recovering from injury. I'll pass on you.

 

Ken Griffey Jr., RF - Free Agent (B) - Chicago Sox - Would fit our need with a left handed bat in the DH slot but I can't see you as an Angel. But yes, he would make us better.

 

Mark Grudzielanek, 2B - Free Agent (B) - Kansas City - No.

 

Eddie Guardado, RP - Free Agent - Minnesota - No.

 

Livan Hernandez, SP - Free Agent - Colorado - No.

 

Orlando Hernandez, SP - Free Agent - NY Mets - No.

 

Eric Hinske, RF - Free Agent - Tampa Bay - No.

 

Orlando Hudson, 2B - Free Agent (A) - Arizona - Yes, but where? So no.

 

Jacque Jones, LF - Free Agent - Florida - No.   

 

Gabe Kapler, CF - Free Agent - Milwaukee - No.

 

Jeff Kent, 2B - Free Agent (B) - LA Dodgers - He would make us better today, but not tomorrow. Strictly as a DH, he has some value left in him.

 

Mark Kotsay, CF - Free Agent - Boston - No.

 

Jon Lieber, RP - Free Agent - Chicago Cubs - No.

 

Paul Lo Duca, C - Free Agent (B) - Florida - No.

 

Braden Looper, SP - Free Agent (B) - St. Louis - No.

 

Derek Lowe, SP - Free Agent (A) - LA Dodgers - Yes, and the more I look at this, the more I'm beginning to believe he'll be part of our rotation next year. He'd be solid for us.

 

Brandon Lyon, RP - Free Agent - Arizona - Yes, if Speier doesn't return to form.

 

Pedro Martinez, SP - Free Agent - NY Mets - I don't like his injuries, plus we’ll end up playing the Yanks and I don’t want to hear their his daddy… so no.

 

Guillermo Mota, RP –Free Agent – Milwaukee – No.

 

Mark Mulder, SP - Free Agent - St. Louis - My darkhorse. I'd like to see it on a 1 year deal w/ a possible for two. 1M$ tops. He's still young enough and I think he can bounce back. Sue me HH.

 

Will Ohman, RP - Free Agent - Atlanta - Yes, again, pending Speier.

 

Oliver Perez, SP - Free Agent (A) - NY Mets - I think Adenhart would be just as good and he’s a class A, so no.

 

Andy Pettitte, SP - Free Agent (A) - NY Yankees - He could help us. He's better than Adenhart at this moment so yes.

 

Mark Prior, SP - Free Agent - San Diego - Interesting but no.

 

Manny Ramirez, LF - Free Agent (A) - LA Dodgers - Obviously. He alone makes us have serious offense. The only FA left that allows us to make that jump. 

 

Dennys Reyes, RP - Free Agent (B) - Minnesota - No.

 

Juan Rincon, RP - Free Agent - Cleveland - No.

 

Ivan Rodriguez, C - Free Agent (B) - NY Yankees - No.

 

Kenny Rogers, SP - Free Agent - Detroit - No.

 

Takashi Saito, RP - Free Agent - LA Dodgers - No.

 

Ben Sheets, SP - Free Agent (A) - Milwaukee - He makes us better instanntly too but I've noticed the halos don't keep people around who have a recent history of injuries, especially pitchers.

 

Frank Thomas, DH - Free Agent (B) - Oakland - I'd take a flier on him for DH on a 1 year deal for $1M and incentives. Again... sue me HH.

 

Juan Uribe, 3B - Free Agent (B) - Chicago Sox - No.

 

Jason Varitek, C - Free Agent (A) Boston - No.

 

Omar Vizquel, SS -  Free Agent - San Francisco - No.

 

Ty Wigginton, 3B -  Free Agent - Houston - No.

 

Brad Wilkerson, RF - Free Agent - Toronto - No.

 

Randy Wolf, SP - Free Agent (B) - Houston - He makes us better today, not tomorrow. Plus, his contract will be greater than his value.

 

Gregg Zaun, C Toronto - No.
