As Angel fans know all too well, the big fish in free agency have essentially given the Angels the middle finger this winter, leaving the Halos pathetic offense stuck out in the cold without a single upgrade. As painful as it might be to see the Angels dive back into the free agent waters, they still need to do something to give their lineup a little bit of a spark. Unfortunately, with such slim pickings out there, it isn't obvious who the Halos should be going after. Sounds like a great topic for this week's poll: Who should be the Angels' new top free agent target?
Time to vote!
Like it or not, the Angels seem to have made up their mind and decided that they pretty much aren't going to do anything to improve the pitiful lineup that submarined their 2010 season. Well, that's not totally true. Mike Scioscia and company are going to cross their fingers and wish their little hearts out that the players already on their roster magically improve in 2011. Are they fooling themselves or is there really some hope for a surprising turnaround next year?
The Angels are going to need more than the return of Kendry Morales to breath new life into their lineup.

With the Angel off-season officially spiraling out of control, the Angel big wigs have taken to the newspapers and airwaves with some spin control so bold and brash that it would even make Joseph Goebbels blush.
The Halos need more offensive depth but are sure they can find it from within. So says Herr Scioscia.
Everyone is comfortable with the Angels having each of their major free agent offers come up short. That is what Comrade Reagins would have us believe.
Not overspending is being done strictly for the good of the fans. Baghdad Arte Moreno will tell you that until he is blue in the face.
To all of us fans on the outside, these statements all seem like obvious lies being thrown out there in a desperate attempt to placate an enraged fanbase. They just seem to be selling this bill of good so ardently and frequently that I can't help but wonder if the Angel front office actually believes their own propaganda?
Propaganda! It isn't just for governments anymore!!!

Adrian Beltre would have us believe that he chose to join the Texas Rangers because he wants to win.
Seeing how Beltre is so used to winning, what with his one career playoff appearance and all, I think it is best that we delve into the top ten reasons he is really signing with the Texas Rangers.
I don't know, tell them something about winning. I don't want everyone to think I am really just a greedy jerk.
