Who is the next Vernon Wells?


Grigori

Recommended Posts

Some Rangers fans have been discussing who the next Vernon Wells will be on the Angels, Pujols or Hamilton?

I feel like Vernon Wells inherited the spot vacated as a result of the GMJ failure. So, it looks like Hamilton is transitioning into the Outfield Boondoggle Role that has become a tradition on the Angels, taking over where Wells left off. I'm thinking Pujols may be likened more to a reincarnation of Mo Vaughn.

But I think the question is which one do you think will be the next big Angel salary dump, if either. Who would take either one, how much salary relief can you expect and is it possible for the Angels to get any players back?

Hey, AO, this was a transition year where the Rangers were working in Perez, Scheppers, Martin and Profar all at once. I told you guys at the end of 2010 you should trade us Weaver to get some minor league players and shoot for 2013, but no, they decided that Pujols and Hamilton were the answer.

I'm sure the Rangers can recover next year. 91 wins is a lot for a transition year.

BTW, I asked a legitimate baseball question and have another one: What young players did the Angels work into their team this year and how do you think they stack up to Perez, Scheppers, Martin and Profar? Maybe you can give a legitimate baseball answer this time.

I wonder if the Rangers are going to trade Kinsler for calling out the fanbase for not showing up for the last two games of the season. They booed the hell out of Hamilton for making similar comments this year so are the Cowboy...,errr... Ranger fans going to put up with Kinsler?

Legitimate question tinged with quite a bit of trolling.....You worry about your players, and we'll worry about ours.

I think you're dead on with the comparisons Glen.

So far:

Hamilton=Wells

Pujols=Vaughn

The second one so far is real true.    But at least Hamilton put up an over .800 OPS (near .300 BA) from August 1 on.    Wells could only dream of doing that as an every day player the past 3 seasons.

Do you mean Carl? I'm CarlG... I'm thinking the Angels should trade Trout to the Rangers to rebuild. It just makes sense. How are my Rangers ever going to get past the A's without Trout!

Well, in the final analysis those who thought losing Hamilton and Napoli was too much for the Rangers were right. Berkman was a total fail. Losing Harrison, surprisingly, was not as much of a disaster as not having enough power in the batting lineup. I'm not saying Hamilton was the answer, but Berkman surely was not. It was a risky move from the beginning. Oh, well.. 91 wins is still OK.

Well, at least we know the internet is working today even though the government is shut down and all. LOL. Has anyone noticed any difference with the government shut down? Are they cancelling the postseason or anything important? I'm hoping I don't get as much junk mail today.

Looks like they got a fine education in the Ranger art of folding at the end of the season.

 

Calhoun, Richards, and DDLR are young players who held their own this year and adding them to Trout, legitimately we still have some young talent.

Carl sneaked on the site wearing a mask?  No wonder we didn't recognize him.  Also, the gloat meter is only on a 4 instead of a solid 8 or 9 when he shows up.

 

Finally Grigori????  There is a Grigori Trilogy about a group of fallen angels.  Kudos to Carl if that's the meaning behind his screen name.  Personally, I doubt it.  Grigori is the name of his pet gerbil is my bet.

Well I am willing to bet Trout isn't much older than Perez, Scheppers, Martin and Profar!

 

Add Calhoun

 

Richards is only a second year guy

On what planet is a 2-game attendance of 86,000 considered "not showing up"?
