Oliver! The Angels want some more

Darren Oliver and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim agreed on a one-year deal for $1.75 million.

Oliver's father, Bob Oliver, also played for the Halos from 1972-74.

If Darren Oliver makes the big club, and the Angels don't have any other lefties in the pen after J.C. Romero was cast aside, he would be the third son of a former Angel to don the (red/blue/periwinkle) of the Halos.

The other pairs:

The Amaros: Ruben and Ruben Jr..

The Davanons: Jerry and Jeff.

Anticipating further questions, no Dick Schofield's father, also named Dick, did not play for the Angels. And Bobby Valentine is not Ellis Valentine's father.

Current players in the majors who have a chance to join this elite crew are: Adam Laroche, Jaret Wright, Aaron Boone, and Prince Fielder. And maybe somebody else I forgot.

Did Sandy Alomar Jr. retire?

Alomar is a free agent. He could still come back. Benito Santiago and Jim Leyritz want to come back too.
