which ex-angel arm could help us now?

got bored and wondered which current mlb pitchers who where angels in the recent past could help us now? considering we have a big question mark for our #5 starter and a black hole for our 8th inning set-up role (arredondo may solve this), the acquisition of an arm would be helpful. let's take a walk down memory lane and see who could help us out;

starters

john garland (zona)- his #'s aren't great but he could be better than the three headed monster of palmer, o'sullivan and loux. he does have a 2.5 mill. buyout for 2010

bartolo colon (wsox)- he's on the dl right now but i could be crazy but i could see him as an 8th inning guy at this point in his career, give him ball (hopefully he won't eat it) and let it rip for one inning

jeff weaver (dodgers)- don't laugh his #'s aren't half bad and he could spot start or corrupt the bullpen

jarod wahburn (seattle)- the mariners are still in it but if they decide to sell and the price is decent, we'd have to kick the tires plus he's a free agent after the season.

relievers

kevin gregg (cubs)- the cubbies are still contending but i think he'd be a great pick-up if they fell apart especially since he probably not going to be re-signed by chi-town.

bobby jenks (wsox)- due to get a big raise next year and don't see us adding his salary along w/the $ already on the hook for fuentes

brendan donnelly (marlins), joel peralta (kc), troy percival (rays)- either hurt or not that much of an upgrade over the jepsen, bulger, speier dreck.

jc romero (philly) & scott schoenweiss (zona)- bad attitudes and not any better than oliver

krod (mets)- not a chance
