Halo Prospectus

Baseball Prospectus chose the Angels as Sunday’s topic in their weekly “Every Given Sunday” section. 

Let’s see…the Angels overachieve, so expect a “downturn,” the Angels have no interest in Manny Ramirez, Mike Scioscia hopes to fill offensive needs with “internal options,” and the Angels traded Mark Teixeira to the Atlanta Braves….

As for Teixeira, the Angels had hoped to bring back the switch-hitting first baseman to anchor their lineup after having dealt him to the Braves for first baseman Casey Kotchmanand a minor leaguer late last July. Teixeira had a combined .328 EqA in 2008, and despite having only 234 plate appearances with the Angels, his 35.2 VORP ranked second on the team, behind only that of right fielder Vladimir Guerrero (41.0).” 

Yes, they really wrote that.  And they expect you to pay for it, too.  Trust us, it’s not worth your duckets.
