Remember back to the year 2000? I remember like it was about seven years ago. But back then Darin Erstad had 240 hits and drove in 100 runs while batting leadoff. He was considered untouchable for years afterwards by the Angels.
And now, according to Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times, Erstad is a free agent with few takers and his old team, the Angels, are only offering him a minor league deal. But I'm sure Erstad would be a fine addition to a quality team like Seattle or Baltimore.
