Cory Rasmus and Grant Green Can’t Catch a Break

They’re major leaguers, getting to play games and getting paid a lot of money to do it. And yet part of me can’t help but feel just a little bad for Cory Rasmus and Grant Green. These are two players who seemingly have the skillset to help the Angels win a lot of games, and yet they’re relegated to back-up duty, non-key roles or even the dreaded assignment to AAA Salt Lake...

Most simply, it’s a one-year contract for a 28-year-old, and it’s worth just $8 million. Rasmus has had a volatile career — last year he finished with a .287 OBP — but he was […]
