No. 1 biggest question of the offseason for the LA Angels: Can we sign Max Scherzer?

Remember when the LA Angels were rumored to be in on Max Scherzer at the trade deadline this year? Well, we’re still in on him.

Scherzer apparently likes LA, and Mike Trout has been recruiting him already. The Angels certainly have the money to afford him and more.

It wouldn’t be a ‘perfect signing,’ as Scherzer is 37 years old. That being said, Scherzer is actually playing the best baseball he ever has right now, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Since he was traded, he’s recorded a 1.98 ERA and is 7-0. He has a .820 WHIP, and is walking just 1.1 batters per nine innings.

I don’t care if it’s a short-term deal, and I don’t care if he doesn’t have a ton of years left in him. We need to go all out to sign Scherzer. If we do, this team will be unstoppable if we stay healthy.

Our starting rotation needs to be the number one priority, and pitching needs to be the focus of this offseason.
