LA Angels: Our only competition for Teixeira

My O's Face

Recommended Posts

Why wouldn't a bunch of teams be interested in Teixeira is my point, I guess... moreso than believing what Boras is spouting.
The teams that need Tex are the Angels, the O's, the MFY's, the Giants, the Gnats, and maybe the Bosux. I can't think of anyone else that would need a 1B, enough to pay a minimum of 6/$120 mm.

By the time those players are eligible for arbitration, shouldn't we be good enough to spend more on payroll anyway? The idea behind Teix is for us to contend quicker, putting butts in the seats, and ultimately raising the payroll.

That would also be true.

More time for MASN for kick in...More fans in the stands, etc...

I don't doubt that there are a lot of teams lining up for Tex, the part I don't believe is that Boras, or any agent for that matter, would eliminate teams from the running. The more competition there is for your product, the quicker and higher the price rises.

    • A lot of people didn’t like this signing.  It was a few bad outings last year but otherwise, he was very good. He will have some bumps in the road but he’s a very capable guy still.
    • I agree. It has to be anticipating Mountcastle being out a little longer, maybe they will IL him too if his knee doesn’t improve quickly. But if Hays is out the minimum 10 days (one of which already passed), maybe Kjerstad gets 3 starts from Mountcastle and 1-2 from rest days for others, available to pinch hit the rest. That wouldn’t be so bad. 
    • I trust the O’s and Elias’ handling of him.  Similar to Decosta and the Ravens, they seem to make more good decisions than other clubs do.     I think he can work it out at the major league level if they do.  Wouldn’t be worried if he got sent down to regain some confidence.
    • I don’t see Wells coming back to the rotation. That was never the plan to begin with. Also, I’m not sure it’s a given that Means can make effective starts at the Bug League level right now. He’s been legit terrible against AAA hitters on a pretty consistent basis so far this season. Now Bradish on the other hand, if he can return, he will probably bump one of Suarez or Irvin to the pen (the one who is pitching the worse).  If Suarez keeps performing (I don’t think his current level is realistic to expect) but at a good level for a back end starter, he stays.
    • Remove Bradish and I will maybe agree. To me this guy is destined for the pen, where hopefully his swing and miss stuff plays up even more. Could be an important piece, but I’m not getting my hopes up too far after two appearances.
    • Good comp. I see a lot of Daniel Cabrera from Suarez. A bigger guy with a real heavy fastball with heat and movement.    Cabrera ending up not living up to his potential, but for a minute it was fun dream of a 1-2 with him and bedard as lethal TOR starters. 
    • To each their own. Carry on…
