The Angels have declined 36-year old lefty swinging outfielder Garret Anderson’s $14 million dollar option for the 2009 season making him a free agent. The Angels might try to bring Anderson back at a discounted price but he still has life in his bat so some team might give him a good chunk of change. Anderson played in 145 games for the Angels last year and he was 163 for 557 (.293 avg, .758 OPS) with 66 runs scored, 15 homers, 84 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Anderson is one of the best players in Angels’ history so it would be a shame to watch him leave. Anderson has played in 2,031 games in his career with the Angels and he is 2,368 for 7,989 (.296 avg, .796 OPS) with 1,024 runs scored, 272 homers, 1,292 RBIs and 78 stolen bases.
