The Angels apparently tried to move Gary Matthews, Jr. but, surprise, his contract is a major hurdle.
“Gary’s contract is a significant contract. Right now, we’ll just continue to explore all opportunities to make our own club better and put the player in the best possible position.”
We’ve said it before and it bears repeating: If Gary Matthews Jr. really is interested in playing everyday for some as of yet undecided team, he’s going to need to re-negotiate his contract first. It’s that simple.
