It’s over, folks. We did something.
No longer are we the bridesmaids. We are getting married!

It’s Cody Allen, the closer for the Cleveland Indians. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why would we want who had the worst year of his career in 2018? 4.70 ERA, 1.36 WHIP? Money is not yet sure, although it appears to be a one-year deal, per Ken Rosenthal.
If you take out 2018, Allen has a career 2.67 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and an 11.7 K/9. I am excited!
But folks, this is just the start. We’ve done something, and this gives me hope that we will continue to do more somethings in the near future!
Long live the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim!
