Tim Salmon Makes the Angels
Veteran Tim Salmon has made the Angels opening day roster. To make room for Salmon - one of the moves made by the Angels was sending stud prospect Dallas McPherson to AAA Salt Lake. Is this a PR move by the Angels? Salmon is a sentimental fan favorite and the all-time Angel leader in a number of categories. Is this a sign that McPherson is over-rated or not in the Angels long term plans?
Do you think the Angels thought Chone Figgins was their 3rd baseman when they let Troy Glaus go?
And if it seems like Tim Salmon has been around forever - its because he has (well at least since 1989 when he was drafted by the Angels). That was the same draft that saw the White Sox take Frank Thomas and the Red Sox take Mo Vaughn. Doesn't that seem like the stone age now?
