agreed, they need to drop some money on a pitcher soon. The team isn't built for super long term success right now, Cano, Cruz and Felix are getting up there so we need to have a sense of urgency to win now. I think DiPoto knows that, so we'll see where this ends up going

I guarantee you he had a plan B if Ohtani didn't sign with us

Bet the spring training tickets are selling like crazy for the Angels. Their camp will be a mad house.

what do you not like about the Dee Gordon trade? I still like it. They're taking on the salary of a 2x All Star and moving his position, but they really didn't give up much in return. They may have been some higher ups in our system, but our system is garbage anyways

That would be pretty awesome too.
They were former teammates in Japan as well.

Makes sense to sign with an AL team

Plus who knows, after a while he could be traded

I think if he joins the Mariners they become a much stronger team than the Angels do by adding him. This was definitely an interesting process that we will likely never see again.

Does this mean he will DH and Pujols won't? I wonder how that will pan out as Pujols has been on the decline.

I agree with the one post - Yu Darvish will sign with the Angels now.

People that say this make me laugh. He's an elite pitching talent who could be had for peanuts, how would you not want him on the cubs? Even if he busts, you aren't really losing much, and the chance that he's worst case a number 2 or 3 starter is pretty high.

Sounds like sour grapes.

We can officially cease speculating between Vladdy and Acuna for #1 on the top 100 lists now.

(except for KLaw, who uses different criteria and won't have him qualify)
