Angels signed RHP Bartolo Colon

Colon is believed to be getting $48 million to become Anaheim's ace. It's a risky move, not just because of the weight issues but also due to concerns about his elbow. However, Colon should be a major asset in 2004. It's best to ignore last year's 15-13 record and 3.87 ERA. He actually had a better WHIP and strikeout rate than he did during his 20-win 2002


WOW ...... when does that balance of power thing change again ???

Even before these changes (Colon, Escobar), I think the Angels are a contender in the west next year. Their roster is strong and well-balanced. #1 is probably still reserved for Oakland, but the Angels might be able to edge out Seattle for second, with these current teams.

I see where our priorities are at:
1. Lower beer prices
2. A competitive ballclub
