LA Angels fans will enjoy Halloween of course, but are looking for a few more treats this winter.

Candy’s great, but we’ll take some cornerstone pieces for our favorite baseball team as well, as we haven’t won it all since 2002.

Perry Minasian has the money to give us a memorable offseason, and has no choice but to get it done right before what will be a pivotal year for this franchise in 2022.

No. 3 treat the front office could give LA Angels fans this offseason: Kevin Gausman

LA Angels fans are looking for impact, front of the line starting pitchers this offseason. Kevin Gausman is one of those guys.

Since heading to San Francisco, Gausman’s been a changed man. He’s pitched to a 3 ERA and a 1.057 WHIP. Allowing just 2.4 walks per nine innings, he’s also struck out 10.9 batters per nine.

He looks great, and this most recent season was his best one yet, showing that he’s carrying momentum into next year if we sign him.

He was an All-Star this year, and recorded a 2.81 ERA with a 1.042 WHIP. He only walked 2.3 batters per nine frames.

This is the type of pitcher we want, and can absolutely afford. He’s also going to cost much less than some of the other elite names in free agency. If we sign Gausman, we’ll have enough money for the guy on this next page too.
