Plus our bullpen will be extremely powerful after this. Our Relievers are among tops in the league imo, they're just young.
P.S. Felix is a beast.
There's a sector of Mariners fans that cringe when Bill Bavasi makes a move, and dealing away prospects doesn't help their long-term well being with Oakland and Texas stockpiling them.
I like the move regardless. With the Rangers and A's packing it in this season, why not give the Angels a run for their money when there's less competition in the division. It's a brilliant move when you evaluate the positives and negatives.
