Why the Angels need to go "all in" this offseason

With the deepest free agent class in years, the time is ripe for Arte Moreno to finally cross the luxury tax threshold for the first time in more than a decade. It feels like so long ago that Arte Moreno bought the Angels and immediately endeared himself to the fanbase by making his first order of business lowering beer prices. In his first offseason he ponied up and signed Vladimir Guerrero, Bartolo Colon, Kelvim Escobar and Jose Guillen. Soon after, he imported teenage Cuban star Kendry Morales, then drafted the Boras-advised Jered Weaver, who fell to the team due to signability...

MLB Trade Rumors Predicts Yoenis Cespedes, Daniel Murphy and Ian Kennedy will be Angels

The folks over at mlbtraderumors.com took a crack at predicting where the highest-ranked free agents would land this winter. In the case of the Angels, I hope they're wrong.

Angels decline qualifying offer on David Freese

Teams can now offer the third baseman a contract without fear of losing a draft pick. In a somewhat surprising move, the Angles have opted not to offer David Freese a qualifying offer, signaling the end of the third baseman's tenure in Anaheim.

Freese, of course, came over in a controversial trade with St. Louis along with Fernando Salas for outfielders Peter Bourjos and Randall Grickuk. It was a steep price to pay as Grichuk outproduced Freese this...
