This is a team in peril.  The Angels were supposed to win and win now, but designed shortcomings have robbed the Angels of this pleasure two years in a row now.  The first year under Dipoto, it was the bullpen.  But that's been fixed via trades (Frieri and De La Rosa), emergence of arms (Jepsen, and Kohn) and the draft (Roth, Alvarez and Morin).  This season, the Angels lack of starting pitching has been the bane of their existence.  Weaver was hurt, Wilson was still stumbling, Hanson and Blanton have been awful and Vargas was solid until his blood clot.  So Jerry Dipoto will go about fixing the Angels rotation next season in an attempt to build a complete ball club that's ready for the World Series.  Enter Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez.  He may or may not be an answer that helps the Angels reach their goals.  It all comes down to circumstance and scouting.   1. What's his potential?  2. Where is he at in regards to meeting that potential right now?  3. What is his floor?  4.
