The idea of a new GM is looking more and more inviting. 

I’m not sure anybody gets canned after this crazy season....but if we really stink it up, I wouldn’t rest easy if I’m Eppler....

He is, but it has nothing to do with the win - loss record.

Exactly this. Arte doesn’t give a shit about winning. He puts on a front on that he does, but let’s be real. It’s all about the Benjamins and getting his development project done. So props to him.  

Dude is a fucking snake and it will be a great day when he sells the team, assuming it’s to someone that cares more about winning, which it probably won’t be because we’re cursed.

Lol be careful what you wish for... very few owners out there that spend money like Arte does.

Man if Eppler isn’t fired after this season, the Angels will waste another year of Trouts prime next year. It’s already been said a million times around here; but outside of rebuilding the prospect pool and Ohtani what has Eppler really done? Arte opened the books up for Trout and Rendon. 
 

I appreciate what Eppler has done for the prospects, but he’s done absolutely nothing in terms of pitching. All he does is dumpster dive. No reason to believe it would be any different next year. You have Trout, Ohtani, and Rendon. The time to win is now. We need a GM with a championship pedigree who can come in and secure some starting P and solid Relief P. 
 

this is just abysmal. By the looks of this game; and yeah it’s early, we are on the path to 2-6.  Honestly wouldn’t shock me if we ended this weekend 2-8. At least we should have a top 5 pick next year at this rate.

I will gladly take the A’s and Rays payroll. Just because we spend money doesn’t mean that it is a good thing. He spends money to put fans in the seats, not for wins (Pujols, Hamilton, Rendon - don’t hate Rendon signing but would’ve much rather overspent on pitching). But those were all sexy signings. Big difference and ones that have huge ROI for him since fans will show up every day to see these guys play. Pitchers pitch once every five days.
