Angels 3B problem: finally solved
Say this about #Angels GM Billy Eppler, he is a master recruiter: He lands Shohei Ohtani from Japan, gets Mike Trout to sign $360 million extension, and now procures Anthony Rendon for $245M. Having the money helps naturally, but Eppler has had charming touch in these talks.
Could Philly still go for MadBum (or other lefty)? There’s been a suggestion advanced they may be close to done since they are close to threshold, but execs from other teams expect them to remain a player due to owner’s desire to win. Real belief is they’ll remain “opportunistic”
Some perspective from a writer who covered the #Angels for almost 20 years.
