We knighted him the Jedi-genius. 

Remember when we extended Trout and everyone was completely satisfied with the offseason. It was euphoria.  

To be fair, the Trout extension is the best he’s ever done. That and signing Ohtani and trading for Simmons. I’m not a fan of anything else he’s done.

That’s crazy.  But I get it some people look at it like it’s pretty easy to build a team.  If you only care about the finished product on the field which I would completely understand that sentiment, then he’s failed you.

If you care about the farm and the organization’s future he has also failed. The Angels are trash as well is their farm. 

And yet you still insist that Eppler is in rebuild mode. Baffling.

And you are delusional if you think the farm isn’t much better than it was and of course they are still rebuilding.

Eppler is entering the phase of his tenure with the Angels where the major league results are wholly on him.  He can’t have another offseason like this last one.  

I agree.

And the farm,  I mean we’ll see. Swanson and Eppler need a bunch of these guy to polish up quickly.  

Depends on what you mean by that.  If you mean will they rank higher next year, probably, will they be ready to be major league regulars next year, doubtful.

I don’t think Eppler will be going anywhere. But with the epic failure of all his free agents signings this season, he has created more doubt for me that he can do what the Angels need him to do. He has to land Cole IMO. How he reworks this rotation is a make or break moment for him.

Well he has been here a while and knows pitching is our weak point and has not done anything to address it. He has gotten a lot of crap pitchers that no one wanted because they were no good, but yet he signed them.  I hope he puts his foot down and tell Mr. Moreno that he needs to open his wallet so he can get some good playtime he is walking because he can’t be getting peanuts out of the bin every year, and is the same crap problems pitching. The manager needs to go to sure as he is crap and never liked the hiring.

You know you love it.

Kinda, it’s just the same ladies as usual. What’s funny is the most rational person in this thread amongst the group is the guy who created this thread.
