The LA Angels have the opportunity to have a tremendous offseason.

The Halos have a lot of money to spend, and are a prime free agent destination based on their location here in the beautiful and sunny Los Angeles-Anaheim area.

The Angels already have the two best players in baseball. They can’t risk squandering their careers. This offseason needs to be active for the club, and there are a few seemingly perfect free agent options for this team.

No. 3 perfect free agent for the LA Angels to immediately target: Justin Verlander

Many would wonder how Justin Verlander could be a perfect candidate when he’s coming off of an injury, but that should absolutely not stop the LA Angels for going after him.

As soon as he’s medically cleared, he needs to be looked at as such. If the doctors say he’s fine, we need to move quickly.

It’s not every day that a team in need of starting pitching badly comes across as accomplished of a pitcher as Justin Verlander. If the Angels have the chance to sign an MVP, a multiple-time Cy Young Award winner, a Triple Crown winner, an ERA title winner, and an eight-time All-Star, they need to do it.

They can outbid anyone they want to this offseason. Arte Moreno is worth $3.6 billion and can spend far more than we have in the past.
