No. 2 bold offseason move the LA Angels need to win the 2022 World Series: Sign Carlos Rodon

Carlos Rodon is one of the very best free agent starting pitchers left, and he would be a great get for the LA Angels. He was a top five AL Cy Young candidate this season. While he did battle injuries, he came back for the end of the season and postseason, so he's healthy now.

He recorded a stellar 2.37 ERA and went 13-5. His WHIP was 0.957, and gave up just 6.2 hits per nine innings.

Rodon had been regressing since his rookie year in 2015, but bounced back in the most mighty of ways this season, being one of the best pitchers in our league. He's been pitching in the AL his entire career, so he's familiar with our competition. Striking out a career-high 12.6 hitters per nine, he's got powerful stuff that would catapult him to possibly the top spot in our rotation.

Those are the types of arms we need to sign right now with many of the elite names already taken. The guy had a 183 ERA+ in this 2021 year. What exactly are we waiting for?
