The Anaheim Angels have found their new closer in former Colorado Rockies closer, Brian Fuentes.
The deal is, as we all knew it would be, for a substantially less amount than what the Mets gave K-Rod.
It’s a two year deal for $17.5 million with an option for 2011 worth $9 million. The total value would be $26.5 million.
I am pretty shocked at this deal. I did not think Fuentes would settle for anything less than $30 million. Great job by the Angels getting more bang for their buck. Now if they can only get into the World Series again.
I would love to see a K-Rod vs. Fuentes game. A game where the closers determine the champion. That would be great. A Game 7, tied game, and we are in extra innings. That would be crazy.
