The Angels are one of four teams interested in closer Francisco Cordero, according to Alex Speier of WEEI. We visit that rumor, along with the club's prospects from John Sickles and speculation on what Dipoto and Pujols need to do to push this team to the next-next level. Oh...and a story about a dead cat as it relates to Yu Darvish. It's worth a read:

  • What's next for Jerry Dipoto, Angels? - Los Angeles Angels Blog - ESPN Los Angeles
    Now, the Angels need the DH spot Abreu would occupy to give at-bats to Mark Trumbo and Kendrys Morales. They'll miss Abreu's patience and his left-handed bat (Let's not forget, he's been a marvelous player for a long time), but his declining production the past three seasons makes him expendable.
  • Red Sox, Angels among four teams interested in closer Francisco Cordero - WEEI
    The Red Sox, according to multiple industry sources, have shown interest in the 36-year-old closer. The Angels and another team have also been in dialogue with the pitcher, as have the Reds, who have said on multiple occasions that they were interested in bringing back the pitcher who averaged 71 appearances per year for them over the course of the four-year, $45 million deal that ran from 2008-11.
