Angels are one of the teams interested in hasbeen Brian McCann.
I was going to post a link to the news, but I found this really great commentary piece on Yahoo about this potential signing. Really nailed it on the head, and I love the opening to this commentary too.
Everyone's got at least one friend whose relationship choices seem to range only from bad to mindbogglingly terrible.
No matter how many times they're burned, they can't stop overlooking obvious faults that are plain as day to everyone else. This friend does want to be happy. He or she does want a successful relationship. But no matter how many resolutions or affirmations they assert, they keep finding themselves in trouble.
The red flags are all there to be seen in their potential partners -- whether it's a guy with a ponytail who "doesn't believe in marriage" or a girl with a cobra tattoo on her back who "has a slight drug problem" -- once the wheels are set in motion, only the eventual train wreck can bring it to a stop.
The last few years have seen the Los Angeles Angels become that hopeless friend.
