Yeah, that sucks. 

Dude misses the All Star Game and up two 2 1/2 months of the rest of the season when he was having a career year. 

There's really no way we can get anything in return for him unless he comes back in September, crushes it and we trade him in the offseason. 

What a complete clusterfuck of a season this has been. But forget about us fans and any chance at making the playoffs this season, I feel really bad for Tommy.

Hard to care about anything non Skaggs related right now. But this sucks.

Dont even care how it effects the scoreboard or standings, but feel bad for him. And for the team. One less positive. 

Not to mention how hard Skaggs was pimping him to get there.....


Absolutely brutal

I’m looking to the bright side. Times are dark but have to soldier on.

Making the playoffs was already a stretch before what’s happened the last couple days. It’s a taller order now, but if we meet it, it will be on the backs of our future - Canning, Suarez, Barria, Rengifo, Ward, Thaiss, Walsh - or should any of them be dealt, the player(s) which we receive for them. Yes, I still think think Eppler could buy, if the price is right for a long-term asset.

This opens the door for an extended look at Thaiss/Ward, which is crucial now for both their future and how the Angels can proceed, and perhaps Walsh/Rojas at some point. This almost ensures we hold onto La Stella for 2020, and if he hits as well as he did this year, I don’t think his trade value at next year’s deadline would be any less than it is now. Yes, less control, but more track record to prove his hitting turned a corner.

Don’t get discouraged. Rally around this team and the youth and depth Eppler has worked to build.

The one positive to come out of this is he's not going to be traded. We may even have him back as an All-Star next year. Jo Adell will probably be here as well.

La Stella, Trout, Ohtani, Upton, Adell, Simmons, Pujols/Thaiss, a catcher, and Fletcher. (or switch Fletcher and Adell)

Trade Calhoun if you must.
