    Yes the Rangers. NYC deserved it. It will be exciting to watch that team in the playoffs next year. If Laf has a calder season and if Kakko breaks out that could be a really incredible top 9 forward group.
    Rangers were 5th in goals for in the regular season. Now they should be 3rd next season with Chytil and Kakko making steps forward and Lafrienere being added.
    The Wild and Florida would still miss the playoffs next season and will continue to be run by terrible GMs, no reason for the NHL to bailout the Wild/Panthers incompetence & doom Lafrienere to be stuck in mediocrity his whole career.

    1)  Release Pujols and sign a retired Kendrys Morales (thus, admitting our previous mistake).
    2) Release Upton and sign a retired Josh Hamilton or Vernon Wells or Gary Matthews Jr. or Jose Guillen for league minimum.
    3) Untrade Clevinger and Corbin (and Carney Lansford, Dante Bichette, Rudy May, Ed Figueroa, Jerry Remy, Leon Wagner, Jason Thompson, Dave Collins, Mickey Rivers, ...)

    Scrap the win now plan. Winning is not happening anytime soon enough for Trout.
     
    This organization is not on the cusp of being a sustainable playoff team anytime soon. Trout is great and fun to watch but they failed him. Trout is a huge commodity but he is extremely expensive.
    The team that’s currently built around him does not have a winning formula so they’re wasting his career.
    I don’t believe that this team can do enough in the next three seasons to be a serious powerhouse contender. The farm is not loaded with much and they already have some wrong side of 30 contracts in place. We don’t have the pitching that’s required to be competitive enough for a realistic championship run. It takes years to build that kind of staff. 
     
    Trout signed a massive extension with the understanding that the Angels were going to be competitive. They’re not and he’s going to start to get frustrated. He wants to win. He wants to be part of the October discussion every year. That’s why he works so hard. Trout will turn 30 next season and we already know that Upton and Pujols are going to be on the roster so that’s another year gone by without a chance of being competitive especially with no pitching and there’s not much left to spend. 
     
    The Ohtani situation has again thrown the Angels off another season. He was supposed to come back and be our Ace and a monster hitter but he’s been none of those. He may or may not even be able to pitch effectively again. 
     
    What about Simmons? He’s great defensively but he’s injury prone and can’t hit. He’s not worth keeping long term. He’s also on the wrong side of 30.
    Fletcher is a bright light to play along side of Rendon. Simmons can be moved for something or just let him walk to save money. 
    The bullpen is not very good at all. We need a solid closer and some setup guys. But again the money that’s tied up on the elderly will delay patching those holes. 
     
    The organization needs to rid itself of Pujols but they won’t so next season will suck also. They need Walsh to step up and mash like a big leaguer. 
     
    Outfield. Upton is toast. Adell will most likely be good next season and maybe a star by 2022. We need Marsh to step up and become a solid big leaguer. 
     
    1) Trade Trout and cash for a massive haul from the skanks. Judge / Torres / Severino and one of Ottavino or Britton
    2) Buy out Pujols and Upton
    3) Extend Eppler one year if he can pull off a great offseason. If not send him packing too.

    1. Find a first baseman to make Albert expendable.  He is still able to contribute more to the Angels than anyone currently on the roster who can play first base.  That is a problem.  He is a distraction as an everyday player.  His at bats have become predictable and painful.  I don't fault him in thinking he can still help the Angels, because he is probably correct until a replacement is acquired.
    2. Trade Heaney to a contending team for some young arms.  Invest more time, patience and coaching into Barria, Suarez and Sandoval.
    3. Hire a new GM.  The team is in a better place thanks to Eppler, but he has not shown the ability to creatively navigate the next step.  This team needs to do a much better job at scouting, drafting and developing players.  That is the Achilles heel of this organization and why it has sucked for so long.

    I have not had much time to post recently, nor have I followed the Angels as closely as I usually do. Perhaps its the state of the world these days, but man do they suck. It’s the same shit year after year. Major holes that never get fixed....smh! I remember when every game used to get me excited. Now, just checking the box score and seeing the highlights is more than enough. 
    I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see this thing turning around
