Five Favorite Free Agents for The LA Angels
By Vincent Page
3.) Madison Bumgarner
I know he isn’t the most popular player due to his anti-bat flip stance, but Madison Bumgarner has really proven himself this year. A tier below the best pitchers available this season, Bumgarner won’t completely break the Angels’ bank if they decide to sign him.
At just 30 years old, Bumgarner has shown no signs of slowing down as a pitcher, and after a couple of fluky injury seasons, he’s right back on track to who he was pre-injury.
How far I’d walk: I would swim the entire coast of California to break him out of whatever the Giants’ ballpark is called now and we would ride his quad all the way back to Anaheim.

2.) Anthony Rendon
The MLB has more talent at third base in the league now than they’ve ever had. Ultimately, that leaves Anthony Rendon to be slightly underrated. However, he’ll still command top dollar on the market.
The main reason I want Rendon isn’t because of his fit. According to my calculations, the Angels have approximately one hundred league average or better infielders.
Honestly, I want Rendon simply because of how much swagger he’d bring to the Angels. With one of the smoothest swings in the game and a slick glove at third base, Rendon would be an absolute joy to watch.
And imagine a 1-2-3-4 of La Stella, Trout, Rendon, and Ohtani…how beautiful.
How far I’d walk: Rendon has 129 home runs in his career thus far, and you bet your bottom dollar I’d walk ten miles for every single one of those big flies.
