Justin Speier - This Day in Angels Blogging History

November 19, 2006, 3 years ago today, the Angels signed former Toronto Blue Jay pitcher Justin Speier as a free agent. It was a Bill Stoneman signing.

The 4-year deal (yes we will be paying him next season) was a precursor to trading Scot Shields and a prospect to the Atlanta Braves for Andruw Jones - whoops wait a minute, was that my analysis? Oh dear. And then in the comments, Welch says "no way" in the comments and I say "way" and am actually persuasive about it.

Funny thing - nobody in the comments was upset about this signing, especially relative to the vitriol that Speier managed to "just inspire" among Angels fans.
