The Angels may release Brad Fullmer rather than risk arbitration. This would be a mistake. Fullmer's the first DH they've had in a long time who was (a) content to be a DH and (b) reasonably good at it. They might be able to get David Ortiz, who was released by the Twins, to take Fullmer's spot, but I don't think I'm totally sold on Ortiz - they're the same age, but Fullmer's played a lot more games and seems to have established himself as a more reliable hitter (hence the $2 million difference in their salaries, I guess).
