Sounds like the team is foolishly going to offer arbitration to Hochevar, Getz and Brayan Pena (at a combined price tag of around $7-8 million). Good call, guys.
Glass and Moore are going to have to SHOW ME the commitment to acquiring starters - real starters - before I believe they'll hit my long-held goal of division title competition in 2013. Glimmer of hope, but I'm not going to get caught expecting it!
Rany had a great update on Sat. Essentially, keeping Hoch will mean that Chen or Mendoza are bumped from the rotation, and both are far better options than Hoch.
Otherwise, we're looking at acquiring only one starter, which isn't enough.
Real focus of the article is Haren, and Rany is suggesting what many of us have: Angels pick up option, we trade a few nice pieces.
