Carl Crawford? Strike One!
Adrian Beltre? Strike Two!!
Strike Three? Not... just... yet.
The Angel off-season technically isn't over, but many out there seem to think it is. Their two biggest free agent targets have been stolen out from under their noses and people are justifiably pissed. But you know what? Get over it. What's done is done and crying about it isn't going to change anything. What is important is figuring out what the Angels are going to do from here. I can't say that I know for sure, but I certainly have some ideas.
Do you know what to do next? No. How about you? Not a clue.

We could sit around all day and wait for the Adrian Beltre negotiations to resolve themselves, but that could take forever. Since there isn't a whole lot else going on right now for the Angels, let's take a peak into the future to see what storylines we'll have to look forward to if/when Beltre ever gets around to picking a team.
Look into my crystal ball and see the future... because the present is pretty damn boring right now.
Twitter Trend Tuesday is back! We had some nice success with our first installment of this feature and now we are back for more!!
The inspiration for this week's topic is the massive confusion being created by all of this frequent and conflicting updates on Adrian Beltre's signing status with the Texas Rangers. One minute he is about to sign the contract, the next, he and Texas have barely even talked. Who knows what to think anymore. I say it is time we add to the confusion which is why this week's trending topic is: #BeltreUpdate
Here are a few sample tweets to get us started:
#BeltreUpdate Report from Dominican says Beltre on verge of ordering chicken taco. MLB.com refutes that, he's holding out for carne asada.
#BeltreUpdate Scott Boras finally found his mystery team for Beltre negotiations, the Hiroshima Carp.
#BeltreUpdate Hold up on signing with Texas is that Adrian wants it in his contract that nobody can rub his head.
I'll be tweeting more throughout the day, so follow me or just do a search on the hashtag to follow along with the fun. I'll post some of the best contributions to the trending topic at the end of the day, so if you have something good, you get to be featured on the blog (which I am sure would be the highlight of your life).

It is a new year yet there is still so much unresolved for the Angels. There is only one way I can think to even begin to answer those lingering questions and that is with the first Multiple Choice Monday of 2011! This week's burning question is pretty obvious: what will happen with Adrian Beltre?
Time to vote!
