The Angels have supposedly been interested in signing Cliff Lee. However, I seriously doubt they are interested with the fact that the Angels have one of the best starting rotations in all of baseball. If the Angels were to sign Lee, they would most likely have to trade away Weaver. I doubt very seriously that we will see Lee in an Angels uniform. Weaver is a good pitcher and Haren is simply dominant. There is absolutely no need to get involved in the Cliff Lee bidding. Except to drive up the price for the Yankees and Rangers.
Hopefully we stay away from Cliff Lee and go after Adrian Beltre. Although he is going to cost a lot. probably 5 years $75 million.
Question: why would the Angels even be interested in Lee in the first place seeing as we already have Weaver, Haren, Santana, Joel and Kaz.
Carl Crawford would have put the Angels into the conversation for the championship. His asking price was simply too high and unreasonable.
Crawford would have been a wonderful addition seeing as Kendry Morales is progressing well and expected to be ready for spring training. However, Beltre would provide some good protection for K-MO. We just need someone to get on base for Kendry and I think this team will regain its dominance over the AL west again.
P.S. Kendry will be the MVP this year.
