Food for Thought: 2013 Free Agents

14

I know we 'live in the now' in baseball, especially with a new GM coming in soon. But when you stop and think about it, isn't 2013 the more logical time to re-shape the Angels back into a World Series contender? 1. Refresh yourself on our contract situation this year and next: http://mlbcontracts.blogspot.com/2005/01/los-angeles-angels-of-anaheim.html The extra *$50-60 million* to spend in 2013 stands out, as does the huge opening (read: opportunity) created with Hunter and Abreu gone and either Aybar, Maicer or Kendrick being potentially replaced with inexpensive *Jean Segura*. 2. The available free agents in 2013 vs. 2012 http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2011/04/2013-mlb-free-agents.html Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Josh Hamilton, Matt Cain, Russell Martin, Miguel Montero, Liriano, Marcum, James Shields Doesn't it just seem like showing a little restraint in the coming months and letting our young guys continue to develop and gear up for 2013 make a lot more sense than cramming Prince Fielder into an insanely crowded 1B/DH situation?
