    I agree. But, assuming that owners are colluding and don't want to escalate annual salaries for elite players beyond $35 million, teams willing to pay that much would only want to outbid each other by offering additional years. Cole is a top 5 pitcher in his prime. Some team is probably going to get a little crazy trying to be the top bidder for his services. If a team is desperate enough to sign Cole to a huge 10 year deal, they are only thinking about what he can do for them now in years 1-5 and figure they can worry later about years 6-10. Some teams are willing to mortgage the future to win now. Bad contracts for ARod, Pujols, and Miggy have proven that.

    Angels and Padres both in the hunt for Maddon.

    It would seem like San Diego might be a great fit with all of the young talent.

    I do find it interesting that one of the main reasons the Angels moved on from Mike Scioscia was that he was too old and they wanted a younger manger that would embrace the new ways of thinking. Maddon is 5 years older than Scioscia.

    When I think of Maddon, he reminds me of Phil Jackson. With both TB and Chicago, those teams were loaded with young talent and ready to go. This is not the case with the Angels. I agree with Gregg that Maddon is a much better fit with SD and LAA may end up going with Eric Chavez.

    To no one's surprise, the Angels hire Joe Maddon as manager.

    Mickey Callaway is going to be named the Angels pitching coach. Prior to the Mets manager gig, Callaway was a pretty good pitching coach for the Indians.

    Does anyone have a read on the Angels vis a vis their pitching.

    For the last few years it has been death valley. I have a significant investment in in Shohei Ohtani and a smaller one in Andrew Heaney. Can I at least get one good season out of the pair?
