Both the NL West and AL West continue to be the hotbeds of activity in baseball. The latest signing of Yoenis Cespedes only adds to the excitement of what will be an incredible year of baseball on the West Coast. Let’s take a look at WSC’s favorite free agent signings of the 2011-2012 off-season.
Yoenis Cespedes, Oakland A’s – He is going to be fun to watch. I haven’t seen much video, but what I have seen is a sweet swing with opposite field power. Reminds me of Sammy Sosa.
Albert Pujols, LA Angels – The Machine. Enough said.
CJ Wilson, LA Angels – Slots in very nicely to an absolutely dominating rotation. Weaver, Haren, Wilson, Santana. Nasty.
Yu Darvish, Texas Rangers – Hey, if the Yu fits, wear it. Can’t wait to see him pitch a full game versus big league talent. $60 Million. How many Yen is that?
Aaron Harang, LA Dodgers – The man born in San Diego, went to San Diego State and played last season for the Padres will head north up the I-5 to Hollywood. Kershaw and Harang will make a deadly 1-2 combo.
Melky Cabrera, SF Giants – The Milk Man delivers. I don’t know what that means. Giants will be a solid team this year. Last year they couldn’t score any runs. With a few lineup changes and Buster Posey back, how will they do this season?
We don’t have much longer to wait. Baseball is upon us. Who are you most looking forward to seeing play?
