You Make the Call: Who Should the Angels Keep?

The World Series is almost over which means free agency will be starting soon.  We all know the Angels have some very tough free agency decisions to make.  Some must stay. Some must go.  The question is who will fall into which category?

Hot stove

The Hot Stove League is about to get underway and things are already cooking for the Halos.

You Make the Call! Which free agent Halos should the Angels try and bring back and who should be the top priority?

A) Bobby Abreu, after all he did give the Angels offense a new perspective with his selective approach at the plate.  Can the Angels really afford to let him walk away after making such great progress?

B) Chone Figgins, his playoff failings aside he is one of the top table setters in the league and wouldn’t be easy to replace.

C) Vladimir Guerrero, he isn’t what he used to be, but he showed in the playoffs that he can still get the job done and should be coming at a steep discount.

D) John Lackey, he’s the best free agent starter on the market and did his best to keep the Angels alive in the post-season but is he worth the massive contract he is bound to demand?

E) Darren Oliver, does the old man have much left in the tank or was 2009 his final hurrah?

F) Robb Quinlan, ummmm…  I got nothing, he can go.

SECRET OPTION G) Kelvim Escobar, his shoulder is going to be OK, seriously, I swear it is true this time.  The seventh comeback try is the charm, right?
