FRIDAY: Jay Bilas

Sports Illustrated’s Tom Verducci joined the show to talk about the Angels signing Josh Hamilton.

“I’m starting to think they wasted money on Ryan Madsen,” Verducci said, because the best closer in baseball is [Angels owner] Artie Moreno.”

Verducci said that the competition with the Dodgers may be overblown. He thinks that Moreno just wants to spend money they have to improve the team.

Verducci explained that there’s a cost to acquire the player in terms of adding years to the end of a contract. “You can’t break it down by year-by-year value,” Verducci said.
