Change seems inevitable at the keystone for the Halos. Howie Kendrick figures to be a hot commodity on the trade market while Grant Green figures to be something. Perhaps he's a quality starter. Perhaps he can barely hold down the fort for a year. Perhaps he ends up playing third base with someone else taking over at second. We gotta figure this thing out.
What they already have: Howie Kendrick (116 wRC+, 2.7 fWAR), Grant Green (104 wRC+, 0.5 fWAR)
If Arte Moreno loses his mind... then we all know that means he is going to hand a blank check to Robinson Cano. I mean, why pay Pujols a quarter of a billion dollars when you can pay Cano a third of a billion dollars? So what if it means forfeiting the 201 first round pick, pushing the team well over the luxury tax line and putting their future financial flexibility in grave danger to the point that they probably won't be able to keep Mike Trout when he becomes a free agent in four years. In other words, this is the worst thing that could happen and is therefore destined to come to pass.no comments
