  1. Back from the dead! Some wished it on me, sometimes I daydreamed about it myself. Sorry Ive been MIA for a bit. Work got wild, and didnt want to have to relive work on here, get in to any catfight, say the wrong thing, etc etc. But through all the madness of the last few months, I missed coming on here and reading the off topic threads, all the Ahole jokes, the inside jokes etc etc. Angels baseball comes back... just as crappy as we left it. It was time to make fun of them again. Then I read Adell was coming up, and I knew I had to comment on it. Had been so long tha

  2. A reader forwarded this story to me and I ran it by Scott Boras and he said it’s not true. They never were told or led to believe in any way the Angels had any issue with having two Asian players.

  5. Every night, @Chuckster70 sits on his porch and pours himself a nice little glass of scotch. He holds it up to the light and admires it. The setting suns rays shine through that little crystal bucket as he watches it set on the horizon beyond the river in the foreground. He places it on the small glass table next to him as he slightly reclines in his teak chair with comfy pads. He clips the end of a robusto or on some nights a double corona and strikes two matches till the tip glows a deep orange. Drawing slightly and puffing as he exhales perfect rings and watches them dance into the hor

  6. hey....Orioles fan here....and a regular on the Orioles Hangout.... The general consensus is that Bundy is what Bundy is...a backend of the rotation and reliable innings eater. He gives up too many HRs both in Camden and on the road but is fine for what he brings. Of course, Mike Elias/Sig Mejdal are of the Houston rebuild mode....i.e. sell any and all parts, etc. So we fully expect another 100 plus loss season and maybe two, but are generally positive about the rebuild under the new regime (and that the Angelos sons are much more hands off than the old man who is ill and not involved in

  11. This is what happened: Indian's GM: Hello? Eppler: Good morning, it's Billy Eppler. How are you doing? Indian's GM: I'm doing well Bill how is your family? Eppler: Doing great. Doing great. So listen, I just wanted to check in on Mike Clevinger. I've heard some rumblings that he might be available for a trade? Indian's GM: Well we're certainly willing to listen, sure. Eppler: Great. So what type of deal are you looking for? We've got some great kids on the farm and some young talent at the big league level. Indian's GM: Jo Ade... Eppler: Cool, cool, cool

    Quality Starts

    I know the "quality start" stat is considered to be dubious at best, but it's important to see the overall picture. The Angels, as a team, had just 22 quality starts in 2019. That's 18 fewer than the next closest team, and 24 fewer than the league average. That's just absolutely hilarious. Let's look at the total number of quality starts by the Angels' two pitching acquisitions this winter: Bundy: 10 Teheran: 15 So those two pitchers had MORE quality starts than our entire rotation in 2019. If we assume the same production from our starters and Bundy/Teheran, we're up

    Operation ASSHAT

    The A's currently sit stop the AL West. Seattle is 2 games behind Houston, with the Angels and Texas in 4th and 5th. If Seattle can overtake Houston, then we're looking at an ASSHAT of a division.

  15. They think Mike Trout has an image problem but then try to suck the life out of every player that plays with any semblance of verve... Baseball politics in a nutshell.

  16. Not saying he is perfect, his biggest mistakes were hiring Ausmus and signing Cozart. When you consider though how big of a mess the entire organization was when he took over, I think he has done well building the team up to be winners in the future. Consider that he had the worst farm system, a team full of bloated salaries and no pitching depth. He also had a stubborn manager that had clearly lost pace with modern baseball. Consider that he wasn't drawn into huge bidding wars and overpays for pitchers that allowed the Angels to come into this offseason with a good amount of cash

    Happy Birthday Tank!

    thank you very much, everyone. this is one of the landmark bdays. i'm now officially old enough to qualify for the senior discount - 60. i realized a long time ago that age is just a number. i don't feel old most of the time, and being around kids every day helps me feel younger. i'm grateful to be here with all of you every day, whether we agree on things or not. thank you for adding to my experience every day.

  27. I don't think so. It's about $$$. I mean, Cole is going to be pitching to Gary Sanchez. The Jays have a bunch of great young catching prospects but no one established. If the Angels offered Keuchel more money, I'm guessing he would have talked up the infield defense as a selling point.

  30. The longer this year went on without baseball, the less interested I became in this year. Not being able to go to games, just killed it for me. Watching it on TV just didn't do it for me. The fake fan noise, the crazy rules, etc., just didn't make it enjoyable. I tried to watch, but I ended up doing something else or watching something else most of the time. The negative crap in this forum got old reallly, really fast. So... I sort of took the year off. You could say I opted out. I'll be back, but I just didn't care that much this year. I got used to not having baseball and the

  35. Why are many people so adamant that Marsh not be traded? If the opportunity exists to trade Marsh (as a centerpiece) for a frontline starter with more than one year of club control, you take it.
