This can either work out extremely well for Angels (if they re-sign Teixeira & win World Series), very well (if they re-sign Teixeira), pretty well for the Angels ... but not in the long-run (if they win the World Series) or extremely ****ing poorly for the Angels (if they lose Kotchman, do not re-sign Teixeira and don't win the World Series).
They better re-sign him. I think they're going to regret giving up Kotchman.
Losing Kotchman hurts big time. Good in the field, hits for average and hard to strike out. The natural hit the nail on the head but barring Texieira being resigned and playing great im not liking the deal.
was the long ball the Angels' problem this year or something? i don't know... i don't follow softball leagues.
Kotchman is a good player and it hurts to loose him, but Teixeira will boost that lineup big time. Also, I'm pretty sure Tony Reagans and Arte Moreno will be able to sign him in the off season. If for some reason they don't sign him Kendry Morales will be waiting for his chance to play.
Teixeira is a huge upgrade on Kotchman.
That said, Angels are going to love dealing with Boras.
They better win the WS this year or they will end up looking [Dave] awfully [Parker] dumb.
Well this is what every sports writer and every fan has been asking for the last three years (a big bat to protect Vlad). We shall see how it works out.
I'm surprised the Angels didn't give up more.
