Angels Sign Darren Oliver

ESPN reports that the Angels have signed free agent southpaw Darren Oliver to a one-year deal with an option for '08 worth around $3.5MM in total. That's one less lefty for the Tigers to consider.

Oliver, who turned 36 this year, wasn't on anyone's wish list before his 2006 with the Mets.  He stepped up with 81 innings of 3.44 ball after switching to relief full-time.  Like many before him, Oliver has found new life out of the 'pen.  Perhaps failed starters like Matt Clement or Russ Ortiz could become bullpen weapons as well.

Angels fans are still waiting for the major move they've been promised, as a Todd Helton deal could not be reached.
