Angels GM Jerry Dipoto said yesterday that the Angels are "not particularly" seeking starting pitching help despite rumors to the contrary, reports Bill Plunkett of the OC Register.

Dipoto's comments put somewhat of a damper on the rumors have been swirling around the past week that the Angels were seeking to add more pitching depth, though they did sign right-hander David Pauley, formerly of the Mariners and Tigers, to a minor-league deal on Friday.

The rumors hit their apex Saturday morning with a tweet from ESPN's Jim Bowden that the stated the Angels were "suddenly the front runner" for the services of Roy Oswalt.

In spite of Dipoto's comments, it's important to remember that this is the same GM who wasn't "particularly" seeking Albert Pujols or C.J. Wilson at the Winter Meetings.

In other words, don't be surprised if the Angels do end up with Oswalt.
