No. 1 free agent the LA Angels can steal from a rival this offseason: Max Scherzer

Mike Trout’s already been recruiting Max Scherzer for the LA Angels.

The Angels have been interested in Scherzer since the trade deadline, and apparently Scherzer loves LA.

Of course, that’s even better news to the Dodgers, since they’re of course in LA too and he’s already with them.

If the Angels can really push as high of a payday as possible, however, they can end up coming up with the gem of this crop of free agent starting pitchers.

Not only is Scherzer the best free agent on a rival team that the Halos could pick up, but he’s the best free agent pitcher on the market league-wide.

Playing the best baseball he ever has since the trade, Scherzer went 7-0 with a 1.98 ERA on the Dodgers.

Next. 5 biggest questions of the offseason

Prying Scherzer away, or even Jansen, would benefit this team. Taking Greinke from the Astros would be a great move. The Angels have options this offseason, and I have faith that they’ll get some big things done.
