Second fiddle on his second-fiddle team
They have a very good chance of having the 1 and 2 in MVP voting and not playing a meaningful game after August for the next couple years.

Makes me really appreciate the loyalty and character of one Stephen Strasburg

Whoever wants to go back and look...I hated his grin after wins and losses for the past 3/4 years.

I did want him back...but if this is what he wanted...good for him. He did something special at Boras made $40MM this week alone.

Rendon may regret it someday.  Money can't buy you love ... or the playoffs.

Way too many strong teams in the AL for the Angels to make the playoffs anytime soon - much less make a deep run - unless they make some huge moves. 

Anthony won a World Series, his concern now was a mega payday. And I don’t blame him, he can spend a few years helping another team get better, just like he did here, only now he’ll be making mega millions to do so.

What do we offer? Have to do it early or we will be the Cubs in a year or two.

And it’s done. 7/245.

Thanks for everything, Tony Two Bags and good luck in Anaheim.

Sad to see him go but wish him well.  He will be missed.

I'm on board your sentiment, but we've also now paid Strasburg 360 million.  Rizzo values and pays for big FA pitchers, but not position players.   I think there is a market scarcity factor at work there and his strategy has served us pretty well.

Market scarcity.... who plays 3rd base?

At this point I think they are rightfully confident in identifying, landing, and developing hitters through the draft and IFA. Homegrown SP has been much more elusive.

Well Rizzo formula has worked I think.

Certainly meant for laughs.

Can't blame Rendon taking money after winning a Championship.

Sorry to see him go, but the Lerners were never going to spend what it would take. Can't begrudge him, he deserves whatever he can get. Thanks for the memories Tony. We will miss you. You are a roll model for how to approach the game.

The time to sign Rendon was last offseason. Could’ve been had for a lot less. We might miss his defense more than his offense. Such a consistent and complete ballplayer.

If they were willing to let Rendon and Harper go, you may as well kiss Soto and Turner goodbye too. They aren’t going to pay them either.
