Can Morales play 3B? He or Pujols there is obviously better than Chavez.

And Callaspo should never, ever, ever be the DH. EVER.

No. Why the hate on Callaspo? He gets on base.

I don't like him which is why I like Lucho there to kill lefties and provide better D.

Rolen is injured more than Chavez.

I'm just not happy with Callaspo (obviously). He's not good as a lefty, not a good power guy, and not a good contact guy. He plays good defense. He's average offensively. Cool. He's also tremendously streaky.

It would be the single greatest concern, had they had a great year from the pen, and a great year from the rotation. I'm not saying it's the Angels first option, but without Izturis…I'm worried.

Last year they had Izturis at around $4M and Callaspo at around $3M.

By going with Jimenez and Romine, they'll save $6 M off last years' numbers. And that's not including saving money against what is sure to be a pay raise for Callaspo.

I'd love to see Trumbo work out at third, but his defense is a concern (I was kidding earlier).

So Jimenez, maybe he works out, maybe he doesn't. But it saves you money they can now use for the rotation and the pen.

Abreu (9), Haren (13), Santana (11), Izturis (4), Hunter (18.5), Hawkins (3), Isringhausen (.65) and Wilson (.5) all likely will not be back. That's close to M off last year's opening day payroll. SUBTRACT the options for Haren and Santana (4.5). That's about $54.5M to play with.

There are 16.4 Million in Raises being given out to Contracted players. Down to 38.

If they bring back Williams that's another Million. Kendrys could be 2-3 M. Jepsen is another 500k. Ok so say 4 M total there.

That's 34 million to bring back Greinke, Sign a Fourth Starter, Sign a Closer or another dependable veteran arm for the pen.

If you figure Greinke is going to get 21-25M, that's not an easy task. Every dollar counts, so if you can save money, and get equal performance you should do it.

A stop-gap platoon of Callaspo and Chavez or Jiminez and Chavez would be fine until Cowart is ready. Either way, it won't be a position of real strength. Just trying to hold out until Cowart's here.

WAR coming into picture here: Callaspo is just not good value.

Assuming the Angels need 95 wins to make the playoffs, they need to get 43 WAR for a $150 M payroll. Trout may not have as good of a season as he did last year, but obviously 40k for a win is freaking excellent. Balanced out though by Pujols $4M per win, Kendrick's 3M per and Aybar is costing you 2+M per win. Callaspo is not under contract, so they can cut him and save the money. I truly think they'll get 1.0 WAR from Jimenez at least. And of course there is 21 M they spend for 0.5 WAR from Wells.

They got 37 WAR last year, and finished slightly ahead of that at 89 wins versus 88. Add in the pitching 2.6 WAR and they actually finished one or two games behind where they should have.

I hope Pujols and Kendrick can have better seasons. I hope they can get two starters in their rotation and a legit closer who all provide positive WAR. Frieri was worth about 1.3 WAR. Grienke was worth 1.3 in the time we had him. Weaver was 3.7.

Many of our pitchers were actually negative WAR. That's obviously the first area of concern right now.

If non-tendering Callaspo means they have more money for pitching, that means a lot. If it's the difference between a legit closer and a average veteran BP arm? Or adding a veteran starter in the fourth spot to go along with Richards or going with Williams and Richards in the fourth and fifth spots?

I'd toss a flier to these guys and see what Cowart can do in SPT. If Cowart holds his own sign one to a bench deal and one to a minor league deal just in case the kid slumps.

Brandon Inge (36) - Had a decent year with OAKLAND HR every 7 games. Just the age and the nose dive in AVG and OBP% scares me to death. Has dropped in all since 2004.

Jeff Keppinger (33) - Valuable Utility guy has played 3B, SS, 2B, 1B, Corner OF ** I LIKE THIS ONE THE BEST**

Scott Rolen (38) - If this was two years ago. The Bat speed is almost gone. And the body is breaking down.

Ty Wigginton (35) - Another Utility Corner guy who could play 2B in an emergency situation.

Kevin Youkilis (34) - Unless you want to hand him the job instead. And give Cowart 3-4 years to develop.

Youk is by far the best option out there. Cowart isn't ready, and they don't want to rush him. Youk would bring this team some TUDE at the hot corner and I think with the "good guys" already on the roster he'd mix in well even if he is a short term option. If the Angels pursue him for a short term contract, say 2 to 3 years tops with the money front loaded, it might work out very well.

Barring some magical trade for Chase Headley or David Wright, I'd like to see what Luis Jimenez can do but I'm worried he's yet another Angels prospect that won't pan out due to poor plate discipline. But he deserves a shot. If he doesn't work out, Callaspo is fine until Cowart is ready.

I would have preferred Izturis be re-signed, but Callaspo is a good option for this year as a utility player if Jimenez or Coward win the 3rd base job. I'm just afraid if we jettison Callaspo, we'll end up with a .157 hitting 3rd baseman the rest of he year.

2 things.

1) Calaspo's value (WAR/$) is not that bad, particularly compared to free agents. We can arguably gain more wins through free agency or trade, but that will come at a much higher efficiency cost (WAR/$). In other words the change in cost will be increasing at a far faster rate than our gain in wins.

2) The goal of the game is not to be the best in terms of Wins / $ (or WAR/$) - the only thing that matters in WINS. Sometimes its ok to kill your efficiency and buy a ton of wins at a high price (see: Pujols, Albert). Oakland may do an amazing job in terms of WAR/$ but in the long run that team wins nothing. Teams need to forget about efficiency at som point if they want to win championships.

"Preferred" would be not whiffing on signing Adrian Beltre, but I digress. The market for 3B isn't much at present, and I don't see a FA in the lot who I would push a pile of cash at.

I think you Scott have stated more than once that a platoon between Callaspo and Lucho could workout given their splits. Jimenez is also a pretty solid defender at the hot corner. The way I see it, the Angels are only going to get better at 3B in 2013, and do not need to spend any money to do so. Callaspo may hit .300 next season if he's only facing RHP. Lucho will probably hit well enough and provide a little more pop if he only has to face LHP.

We just had the highest offensive WAR of any team since the Mariners back in 2001.  That just shows you how bad the pitching was last year.

I choose the 'write-in" option of trading for Chase Headley and make Callaspo the utility infielder. Saw a write-up on Mlbtraderumors that suggested San Diego would need to pay $36-$40 million over 4 years to extend him. That is very reasonable cost for his production, even if you increase it to $44 million over 4. What would it cost though? Richards, Lucho Jimenez and Mark Trumbo or Peter Bourjos?

I would love to have Headley if the Padres were willing to trade him(which is looking less likely in recent weeks), but if they do make him available, there are teams with much better farm systems than the Angels interested in acquiring him.

I just don't think our farm system is in a position to acquire talent like Headley through trades.

Awesome, upgrading 3rd base according to your plan makes our starting rotation:

Weaver, Wilson, Williams, Maronde, Mills

I'm cool with that rotation.

Luckily DiPoto would still have 3 months to drum up a few extra starters.

Weaver and Wilson and....and....something that rhymes with Wilson that accurately describes how bad that back 3 sounds.

Yeah. All this speculation is fine and all, but the team didn't miss the playoffs because of who was playing 3rd.

callaspo is fine. give lucho a few abs to see if he can hit lefties. no to trumbo. let the guy worry about his offense from a corner OF spot. Bourjos gets Torii's spot. Romine gets izzy's spot. Offense and defense done. Concentrate on pitching. Get the japanese closer. Sign or trade for at least one additional pen arm. Maybe two. Sign Marcum. Get Grienke or Sanchez. Done

I'm sticking with my offseason plan of:

1. Trade for Headley. Make Callaspo the utility man.
2. Sign Oriental reliever.
3. Sign 3 second-tier starters, preferably Baker, Marcum, McCarthy, Braden or Saunders OR sign 2 from that group figuring Williams will compete for #5.
4. Sign another reliever returning from injury (Madson, Soria) or someone like Sean Burnett.
