DOnnelly, SHields and K-Rod are maybe the best top-3 bullpen there is, but when the SP situation is weakend with Colon out, you have to pitch your 4th and 5th guys in the bullpen more. I'm sure SCiosia had intended Romero as just a spot guy to get a big lefty out, instead, he's had to put him in throwing way too much.
The problem with the Angels is, they're depending on aging vets on the downslope of their careers and youngsters who aren't improving quickly. That and mere adequate vets like Kennedy and Rvera.
Vlad, Figgins and ORmado Cabrera are darn good. Garrett Anderson is good when he's healthy, but he really ought to be DHing more, but that slot is being taken by Salmon.
Anderson should be DHING far more games, with Salmon getting his ABS at DH when GA is on the field or when he spot starts at 1b.
Trading for a Miggy Cabrera would solve a lot of problems. Miggy and Vlad is like Ortiz and Manny, and that changes the whole way you pitch that lineup. You could move FIggy to a more utility role too.
I absoluetly agree with the Miggy Cabrera idea. I was thinking who could the Angels get that would immediately solve their problems. He would be a perfect fit. Florida will be asking for a ton in return, whoever gets him. Probably 3 top prospects I'm thinking, or 1 major league ready player and 2 top prospects.
