Ever since the departure of Bengie Molina, catcher has been something of a quagmire for the Angels. Sometimes they have too much defense and not enough offense, sometimes it is the other way around and sometimes they have both yet it is still a problem. Going into this off-season, the catching depth chart definitely leans towards the offensive end of the spectrum, which probably makes the Great and Mighty Sosh none too happy with options. Will the Angels learn to live with what they already have or will they look to bring in a catcher that can actually, you know, catch?
If Arte Moreno loses his mind... he'll make Jerry DiPuppeto sign Brian McCann to a nine-figure contract. What could possibly go wrong with signing a 30-year old catcher with shoulder problems whose offensive numbers are starting to slip? McCann is a very good player and would surely make the Angels better in the short-term, but his manifest destiny is to be an albatross contract in three years. In other words, he is perfect for the Angels.no comments
