Angels Release Robb Quinlan

The Angels released Robb Quinlan, according to MLB.com’s Evan Drellich. Quinlan, 33, spent part of eight seasons with the Angels as a utility player, though he batted just 36 times in the big leagues this year. He spent most of the season at Triple A, where he posted a .258/.336/.305 line in 144 plate appearances.

Quinlan drew interest from the Twins, Rockies and Dodgers last winter, before signing with the Angels in February. As usual, he played all four corner positions in 2010. Earlier today, the Angels released another veteran role player, Brian Stokes.

Sosh is going to cry himself to sleep tonight….after he eats a whole pan of lasagna first, of course. What a crappy year to be a Halos fan.

Shouldn’t have been signed in the first place. Unfortunately, the Angels are realizing all of their mistakes about 4 months too late.

What a complete disaster of a season.

If Reagins wouldn’t have traded for Haren I think he would have been fired this winter

I thought they released him along time ago? lol

He accepted an assignment to Salt Lake earlier in the year, but remained on the 40 man roster for the whole time. What a waste of a space, but Rule 5 draft is coming up and I’m not surprised (relieved) to see this happen.

The Reds need some outfield help with a couple of their guys hobbled out there. Not saying Robb is the saviour, but a spot start here and there might help.

I can’t believe Robb Quinlan’s release has garnered eleven [now twelve] comments!

For Angles fan, Arte and Tony are the ones that deserve to be released!

I’m a little surprised myself that Q is getting this much attention. Maybe he’s a lot more well known than Halos fans like to believe. lol

BTW, he was a valuable spot starter/role player and really filled some gaps offensively when veterans went on the DL. But that was 2004-2007. He’s obviously on his way out. But that doesn’t mean his help is not to be appreciated. Good luck, Q.

As far as Arte and Reagins…

The Angels’ season has little to do with upper management.

After riding on the shoulders of Vladmimir Guerrero for 6 years, the young talent they have on that roster needs to break away from the nest and grow up a little. And that’s exactly what is happening this year.

The Yankees make it every year because they are overloaded with veterans and just a few homegrown players here and there. They don’t cling to Tex and A-Rod the way the Halos clung to Vladdy. Yanks are 22-3 without A-Rod.

Same goes for the Braves and their 14 year run (Was it 14?). Their young players never latched on to Terry Pendleton or Fred McGriff; they never looked at Greg Maddux to change their diapers for them.

The Angels are just dealing with a bunch of kids who are in the adolescent stages of their careers and just need to get through that.

Kendry Morales is the big bat they need to get this winter, and he’s already on the team. What they really need is a leadoff hitter who is patient and can fly, and about 2 more patient bats; especially since this team has suddenly turned into a “sit and wait for the long ball” type of offense. Who woulda’ though that coming from Scioscia’s office?

Overall, I think 2010 is a total fluke for the Angels.
