    Going to arbitration worries me. If Rodriguez hits the free agent market the Yankees will pick him up. No way the Angels can compete with that. Also, I'll be out an Angels jersey since my newest one has good old #57 on the back. Damnit!

    ESPN - With no long-term deal in place, K-Rod expects to be free agent after '08 season - MLB
    It is a very good thing for Angel fans (that's me) that Frankie lost the arbitration. It sets the starting point for negotiations on an extension. Had he won the starting point would be 12.5 mil in an offer resembling Mariano Rivera's 3/45. I doubt that offer would ever be made. At least now they can start with an offer in the 3/36 range and go from there.

    His comments make it seem that he is being mature about the arbitration loss, at least publicly.

    One more thing. If he insists on 4 or more years, bye-bye. I am hoping it works out but if it doesn't I am fully prepared to move on and I'm positive that the Angels are as well.

    I love k-rod and he's often looked at as the best in the game but when he's on the mound it is a rollercoaster ride. I'd be fine with shields or spier.

    K-Rod's arm is going to blow up soon. His mechanics are horrible and he throws way too many breaking balls. His elbow will explode soon....

    They can groom Santana to replace him for all i care. My gut feeling is he walks after this season no matter what the Angels offer him. If 10 mil a year to pitch as little as he does, and maybe pitching well 75% of that time, i say let him walk.

    Arms are not in short supply within the Angels organization.

    Santana doesn't have the mental makeup to be closer, IMO. They have better option now in Shields or even Spier.

    With this being a contract year, I'm looking for K-Rod to have a helluva season.

    Agree with that. Guys always have their career years when it's time to get paid. I'd love for Frankie to stay but if he wants a ton of money I think we've got to let him walk.

    Angels have enough to win the West this year, no problem, but do we have enough to handle the Sox or Cleveland in the post season? I'm not to sure.

    Heard the Angels' telecast yesterday, and Hud or Phys said that Riveria was indeed working at 1B. As for the Tigers, pitching is a tick suspect. Good pitching beats good hitting, Angels have both. I would quote the two users I am responding to, but I have no idea how to.

    I think my assessment of the Tigers, early on, has been right so far.

    Riveria hasn't seen much playing time, and hasn't played first base.

    As for Rodriguez, he's been shaky, like slam a beer down shaky. With that being said, Rodriguez has gotten the job done. I don't think I'm quite ready to see him leave the Angels just yet.
