  2. Last night everyone pretty much broke it at the same time, probably because we all have the same Angels source telling us. At this point it’s a formality. Some time today the Angels will announce Minasian as the GM.

    Dear Arte....

    ..... I know you've said the payroll will not be going down... I think everyone is happy to hear that. I know all of MLB is worried about covid keeping fans away again, and that's valid. We miss going to games as much as you guys miss the revenue. Things is, we know every team in MLB will see a key revenue stream increase by at least 40% in 2022 when the new Fox and Turner national TV deals kick in. Fox money went up by 40%, the Turner deal ended up going up 63% and the ESPN deal is up for renewal... Last time it more than doubled, its unlikely it won't also result in MLB see

  5. For the first time in a few year I feel like the division is wide open for the taking. There isn't a team that clearly sits on top of the others. The A's and Astros could certainly make some moves and be better than they are right now but the Angels are in a similar boat. Those three teams are all at a similar starting point in my estimation and this off season will determine the winner. The Angels might be the only team of those three to actually spend a little to improve. But they all have issues to deal with. Whoever finds their way to 93-95 wins will take it. But t

  6. JFC.... The Angels supposed strength at the time was their youthful rotation. Their weakness was the complete lack of position player depth up and down the system. These were the pitchers on hand in 2015 and their ages. Tyler Skaggs - 23 Andrew Heaney - 24 Nick Tropeano - 24 Garrett Richards - 27 Hector Santiago - 27 Matt Shoemaker - 28 Nate Smith was 23 and still had a functioning arm in AAA too. At the same time the Angels had all of TWO position players under age 27.. Mike Trout - 23 CJ Cron - 25 When Eppler took over he had no starting C, a shit-tas

  8. I wasn't sure if one of these existed yet. Get rid of it if it's a Craig, or if there are other plans. If not, feel free to make your Angels predictions here. 1. Angels sign Kolten Wong for 2 years, 14 million. 2021/5 million, 2022/9 million. 2. Angels sign Jake Odorizzi for 3 years, 39 million. 2021/9 million, 2022/15 million, 2023/15 million. 3. Angels sign Trevor May for 2 years, 14 million. 4. Angels sign Joc Peterson for one year, 6 million. 5. Angels trade Jordyn Adams, Luis Rengifo and Matt Thaiss to Pittsburgh for Joe Musgrove.

  11. The idea of giving up assets for Lindor just to watch him leave after the season makes no sense to me. If we were one player away then sure. But we are 3-5 pitchers away.

  13. you shouldn't comment on stuff you don't really know about. intl prospect are usually signed at age 16 which means it takes 6+ years for them to reach AAA. They got Vera (9) and Placentia (top 30) from the last class. That's like two first round picks. Add Jose Bonilla to that plus another 20 youngsters that we haven't even hardly seen yet. That's 3 in our top 30 prospects just from last year. Plus Knowles, Yan, Alexander Ramirez, Deveaux, Robinson Pina, Livan Soto, Orlando Martinez, Kevin Maitan, and Stiward Aquino. So 12 of our top 30 are international plus Ohtani.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Likewise Kevin. This year has really sucked in many ways. I’m thankful for family and friends (AW included), and for those who have been personally affected by this virus, who lost loved ones and friends, know that there are many who are keeping you in thought. Have a great holiday weekend everybody.

  16. Well you have to go to the root of the problem, which is essentially social media. This Middleton story like many other rumors, gossip & BS stories are from IG and Twitter. I wish we could go back to the days before Facebook, Twitter etc. when we got our breaking news from radio sports talk show hosts, ESPN ticker or the paper the next day. Thank you. We're not the problem, we're the solution yo!

  17. Everybody would like to have Snell. And everybody would like to keep Adell. I am not sure what people are thinking if they think Tampa would make a deal that doesn’t include Adell. If Adell is too much to pay for a 27 year old front line starter with three more years of very affordable control, then what pitcher are you seriously thinking you are going to get for Adell? Given the make up of the current Angel roster, the next three years is very, very important. It is more important, by far, to have a Snell for the next three years than it is to have an Adell. Yes he m

  22. I listened to the interview and there were a few good takeaways. Rodger asked if he would be comfortable with Fletcher as the SS next year, Arte said yes but he also said he is a good 2B... I am paraphrasing but Arte said the pandemic will play a role in how much he spends in FA. He mentioned that they only hit about 37% of their projected revenue this year. He alluded to the fact that the amount of spending will be dictated on if we have fans in the stands next year and play a full season. He mentioned MLB will give some indication on how the season will play out soon. Talk

  28. By Robert Cunningham, Angelswin.com Senior Writer Special Request from Angelswin.com: This year, after discussion with Chuck, we have decided to tie-in the 2021 Angelswin.com Primer Series with a wonderful GoFundMe effort called “Hope for Education”. This is a focused fundraiser, to help ten needy families in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, obtain laptops for educational use in this challenging COVID-19 pandemic environment. These families are unable to afford these computers, themselves, and so it is up to charitable people and donors to help bridge the gap so these childr

  29. Worth noting that the Angels began working on this deal before Minasian was hired. Obviously he could have nixed it once he took over, so he certainly approved it, but it wasn’t his idea.

  30. Like every trade scenario, if there's a prospect we want to keep, then that's the prospect teams will want. The Bundy trade is an example of just how much we as fans hilariously overvalue our own prospects. Bundy was a sell-low candidate with a career 94 ERA+, and he cost FOUR pitching prospects. Whether you know their names or not is irrelevant, that's a pretty steep price. The market is going to be weird as hell, as has been stated many times. If I were to venture a guess, I'd say the trade market is going to be incredibly active. If the Angels want to land a solid starter (or two

  33. I'm hoping, sorry. Mostly I'm concerned Hill is one of the final three. I've heard good things actually but I have my concerns about him. Honestly, I don't know that it matters unless whoever gets the job has any real autonomy (as you've said). I've reached the point where I care less about who the GM is and more that they just throw more money at player development and analytics. I just want to see the franchise back to being a consistent winner. My big concern is that once again this is an off-season where ultimately Arte can really impact the outcomes. If it truly ends u

  35. Yelich and Realmuto were 11 drafts ago. Jose Fernandez 10. Since then 2012 Heaney 9th (and let's be honest, Heaney is really just ok) 2013 Took Colin Moran (6) and Matt Krook (35). Got Trevor Williams in the second round that year as well and traded him in 2015 for Richard Mitchell. 2014 Got Brian Anderson in the third round. Tyler Kolek (2) and Blake Anderson (36) as well as Justin Twine (43) 2015 - Josh Naylor (12) 2016 - Braxton Garrett (7), Chris Paddack in the 8th round and traded him for Fernando Rodney. 2017 - Trevor Rogers (13) - their #8 prospect right now.
