    Apparently Loria had put the franchise $400M in debt, so it was probably hard for MLB to even find a willing buyer.

    I see well that makes more sense then. Surprised they were valued as high as they were then.

    EDIT: Doesn't Mark Cuban want an MLB team?

    I think they look like the 2nd WC team to me right now.

    I'm not sure that's true. It really depends on Ohtani health though. If he can give the Angels 160IP of 3.50 FIP ball I would be surprised if they did not grab one of the Wild Card sports.

    Not sure about their rotation even with Ohtani, but yeah, they are probably the favorites in that crowded 2nd wild card race at this point. Still a ways to go in the off season though.

    If Ohtani isn't an ace, then they might have some problems. They have a ton of injury concerns in the rotation.

    Angels get Otani and Kinsler for nothing. Good job Eppler.
