Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Angels have made a “significant” offer to Adrian Beltre. With “significant” being the characterization of GM Tony Reagins.

Beltre is the biggest fish left out there, and the Angels — thought by so many to be willing to spend a bunch this winter but thus far having done very little — could use him badly.  What’s worse is that if they don’t get him, the Rangers could, which would make losing out on Beltre’s services doubly bad. Doubly? Yeah, sure, why not. Doubly.

And, as we’re obligated to say in posts about Adrian Beltre, he’s an Orange County resident who is on record saying that he’d like to be on the west coast if possible, so him going to the Angels makes double-plus-good sense.  Yes, double-plus-good.

    So losing him would be DoublePlusUngood?

    Would the Angels use Beltre badly in the same way that the Mariners used Chone Figgins badly?

    Sir, I believe you are engaging in Doublethink. I commend you. We all commend you.
