Escobar to the Bullpen?????

$19M for a middle reliever who would be their 4th best guy out of the bullpen? I don't think so. He's a starter, so don't think that they'd be stupid enough to give him that much money to have the role that Scot Shields had last year. If anything, you might be able to get him cheaper now by showing this to your leaguemates.

I don't own Escobar, but I wouldn't worry about this news.

Escobar just pitched 7 scoreless innnings today bringing down his spring ERA to 3.66

The Angels still have excellent relievers in Weber and KRod.

Oh yeah, forgot about Weber. Taht would make Escobar their 5th best right-handed reliever behind Percival, K-Rod, Donnelly, and Weber. No way he's in the pen this year.

my guess is that sele really screwed the angels by pitching poorly in ST. They will now try to showcase him during the start of the season (and hope he pitches well) so that they can trade him and move escobar back in...
