Ready or not? That is the big question that faces Kendrys Morales this season. He's already failed his first test and landed on the DL to start the year, but can Morales rehab quickly and set himself up for a big comeback season?

Time is running out for Brandon Wood. His spring has been less than impressive and his roster spot is disappearing before his eyes, yet somewhere deep down he still has some of that potential that made him such a star prospect years ago. What are the Angels to do? Does he deserve more patience or is it time to finally just give up on Brandon Wood?

Its been five years since Oakland has won the division, finishing behind the Angels every year since then. Now boasting a retooled offense and a few upgrades to their already phenomenal pitching staff, Oakland may be an obstacle in the long road back to the top of the AL West for the Angels. Will they falter like they have year after year since 2006, or will they make a run for it all on the back of their pitching?
This is the only interesting picture of anything A's based on the Internet. It's the best I could find, trust me.
Hisanori was an under-the-radar free agent signing for the Angels that could pay big dividends this year or turn into another case of the Angels overpaying for mediocre bullpen talent. Which will it be?
