David Freese does not suck

David Freese does not suck. Some Angels fans seem to think he does, but he doesn’t. He’s not great. He may not even be good, but he does not, in fact, suck. For some reason, there has been a movement this offseason by a segment of Angels fans to rid the team of David Freese due to the misguided perception that he sucks. There were calls for him to be non-tendered back in December...

They can’t stop telling reporters that Howie Kendrick is on the block. The one guy that doesn’t appear to be available...

The Monkey’s plans for the Angels offseason

Each offseason since 2009, I have written this column, detailing my plan for what the Angels should do to improve the roster. Each offseason since 2009, the Angels have been blatantly ignoring my plan and they haven’t won a single playoff game in that time. Coincidence? I think not! Fine, if that’s really how you want to play it, Angels, then you have given me no other choice...

However, before they can do that, they need to take care of some housekeeping. No, I’m not talking about sweeping all the rat turds out of the bowels of Angel Stadium (though they should probably...
