He has been a pretty good producer but the problem is that Guillen will not play him regularly.

I don't know if it because Guillen believes that Lillibridge will be "exposed" by regular playing time, or if it is because he has some inexplicable man-crush on Alex Rios.

Rios has been sucking since July of 2010, but Ozzie keeps running him out there.

Probably has something to do with the $50 million they owe Rios through 2014.

Alex Arthopo-whatever is a genius for getting out from under that deal and the even larger Vernon Wells deal.

Then took that extra money from those contracts and invested into developing Jose Bautista into some sort of superhuman through genetic therapies and cyborg technology

I didn't know that Rios was owed a ton of money based upon a contract he signed with the Jays.

You are absolutely correct that dumping Rios' contract was worthwhile, and getting rid of the eminently mediocre Wells and his $80 anchor? I could not BELIEVE that the Angels took on the entire contract.

Seriously, I wondered if Dave Littlefield had joined the Angels front office, and was next going to call the Giants about taking on Zito's contract.
