Angels 2016 Lineup

Recommended Posts

I like your 1-2-3 and then it gets pretty kooky. I realize the Cano/Cabrera position switch is a typo, but is that Luis Jimenez at SS? Not happening.


I think you might see something more like:


CF Bourjos

2B Lindsey (or Yarbrough)

LF Trout

DH Pujols

1B Trumbo (or Cron)

RF Hamilton

C Conger

3B Cowart

SS Rondon (or Stamets)


I'd love to see Calhoun in RF, but that will be year 4 of 5 for Hamilton.


If Rondon isn't ready Stamets could hold SS down until he is. Trumbo could be gone in favor of Cron, or Calhoun actually. I don't see Albert being the full-time 1B then, although you never know.

yeah, we're stuck with Pujols and Hamilton's contract so let's go out and sign Cano away from the Yankees for a 8 year deal worth $18 to $20 million a year......this makes sense (LOL!)


I guess Cabrera decides to play for the Angels for a dollar a year because that's all we'll have left to pay him........


..........perhaps Pujols and Cano can be ticket takers at the ballpark during the final year(s) of their contracts.


Also, I really like Bourjos, but think his time in Anaheim may be more limited.......wouldn't count on him being here in 2016.


two years away is an eternity in today's MLB........not like 'back in the day' when you knew each team's line up for years upon end and when there was a change, it was NEWS.  Now, the entire roster changes from year to year.........
