Angels Looking at Several of Our Pitchers

ed feverCorrespondent IApril 21, 2009

This is why I said making the moves, as the Met's front office did, made no sense.  The moves limited our control of the situation and basically left us with less options.

Darren O'Day, in my opinion, was nothing special, but at least he was a ground ball specialist, much like Chad Bradford or Joe Smith.

Once you cut Sanchez to make room for him he immediately gained the value of Duaner, as well as his own.

Nelson Figueroa is a decent spot starter and, more than likely, better suited as a long reliever, by the third trip through the line-up the opposition figured him out. ]

To pitch six solid innings and then be given your papers is an insult, even if he isn't claimed I wouldn't accept assignment. T

he Mets pitching depth is now at the mercy of the waiver wire and more specifically the Angels. It's a long season and pitching depth is critical to a successful team, it seems way to early to burn through so many options.

Anaheim is in need of pitching, and they are looking at both of our recent, designated pitchers along with a former, top prospect...

The Angels are looking for any pitching help they can find, and don't be surprised if they pick up a pitcher or two who recently was designated for assignment. Among the possibilities: Nationals righty Steven Shell and lefty Wil Ledezma, Mets righties Darren O'Day and Nelson Figueroa and Twins righty Philip Humber. source Fox Sports
