Angels - Signed Rodney
Los Angeles Angels - Signed P Fernando Rodney to a 2-year, $11 million contract.
This kind of reminds me of the climactic scene from the movie Spartacus. Unwilling to point out which GM is Ed Wade, Tony Reagins bravely stands up, shouts “I am Ed Wade!” and signs a significantly inferior pitcher to a similar contract.
Remember when the Angels could assemble most of a bullpen for a couple of million a year through scrapheap pickups and in-house development?
When it comes down to it, Rodney’s essentially a serviceable reliever, whose impressive fastball is surpassed only by an impressive lack of command. I imagine there will be a lot of 8th innings in which Angel fans channel George Stallings. Given that Octavio Dotel, a superior pitcher to Rodney, is expected to sign a 1-year, $3 million contract with the Pirates, the former should think about hiring the latter’s agent.
