The LA Angels have had a solid offseason so far.
The good news is that Mark Gubicza, Angels TV color analyst, has teased that the Halos are going to have their fans ecstatic during Thanksgiving week:
""For a long time, Angel fans have been saying; 'When are they going to get pitching?' There's going to be another big name I think in the next few days as far as signing with the Angels" "- Mark Gubicza, Angels TV color analyst
Mark Gubicza is saying what all LA Angels fans want to hear.
LA Angels color analyst Mark Gubicza was referring to starting pitching in the above quote in his Tuesday interview on MLB Network. He talked about many things in his interview, but the most notable had to be his insider information on the rotation.
And, Gubicza's around the team every day, so we would be foolish not to believe that there's something here.
Not too long ago, former MLB GM and current CBS Sports MLB analyst Jim Bowden had the Angels going for all kinds of names. Max Scherzer was a name he mentioned, Robbie Ray was a name he mentioned, and he even mentioned Chris Bassitt and Frankie Montas as trade candidates. And while he didn't provide any names from the Marlins, he did say that the Halos are talking to them about pitching.
Gubi didn't say any specific names, but the Angels have been linked to those above guys, as well as Marcus Stroman too. The fans love Stroman, and even had "#StromanToAnaheim" trending on Twitter Monday night.
I get the feeling that the fans would be excited about any of these names. I get the feeling they'd get excited just upon hearing what Gubicza had to say in general. I mean, we already know that the Angels have already offered Steven Matz.
The bottom line is that the Halos are not anywhere close to done with improving their starting rotation.
They've been improving the roster as a whole, and if Gubi's right, the Halos may be looking dangerous very quickly.
