Fox sports reports that the Angels were among teams that had scouts at this D'backs vs. Marlins game featuring Danny Haren versus Ricky Nolasco. The report states that scouts may not have been there to watch either pitcher. If that's the case, what were they there to do? Do they have really good hotdogs there?
Assuming there is some interest in either pitcher, which do you think it is? Obviously, Haren is a guy a lot of teams want (now that Lee has gone to the Rangers). But the D'backs have already made it clear that a team would have to really pony up to make them happy.
If they were scouting Nolasco, does anyone think he would be that much of an improvement over Kazmir? Kazmir's WAR is 0.2 this season, and Nolasco's is 0.9. Hardly a great improvement. However, he would most likely eat up more innings than Kaz has been (which is not hard to do). Plus, he may come cheap.
