Angels need another starter. Washburn will probably be expensive. Paul Byrd is a perfect fit for a one year contract, just like he was last year. Problem is, Byrd will probably get a 3 year deal from someone.
I think I've found the guy. You want someone who is not getting much attention, would probably take a one year deal, and can pitch. I don't know if he's looking for a deal, or plans on retiring. He's a bit of an A-hole, at least to reporters, but he's also a certified Angel killer, and it would be nice not to have to face him anymore.
I speak of Kenny Rogers.
His projection in Angeltown:
201 IP 216H 56 BB 105K 19HR 4.24 ERA
I think that projection is reasonable. He's pitched as well or better for the last 2 years, and with David Wells and Jamie Moyer still around, he's young for a lefty.
Come on, Mr. Stoneman, take a gamble.
