Kudos to my Angels who just signed left-handed reliever, Darren Oliver. This bolsters an already strong bullpen with Francisco Rodriguez, Scot Shields, recently signed Justin Speir, and Hector Carrasco. This addition solidifies the Angel pitching staff and makes it perhaps the deepest in the majors. Stay tuned as to whether they trade pitching for a power hitter. Don't be surprised if they sign Barry Zito and trade one of their young starters. Rumors have spread that the Angels could trade Casey Kotchman and Chone Figgins for Atlanta first baseman Adam Laroche. If they could do it without trading pitching, this would position them as one of the favorites to win it all next year.
