  1. How someone can say Jones “earned” the promotion is beyond me. Guy really struggled last year. This might be the best thing for his development, but it’s a huge stretch of the imagination to say this was earned
  2. I agree. With hindsight being 20/20 though (which of course it isn't), that's what should have been done,
  3. In hindsight one of the biggest mistakes this team made was not tearing it down and restarting after 2009. Lackey, Figgins, Vlad were all leaving and in hindsight that was the perfect opportunity to pack it in and start gaining assets. They should have sold Napoli for futures instead of making the disastrous Wells move. Oh well
  4. Anyway, Salmon was obviously better overall. But, GA was a better player than some of the hindsight nerds say he was. I think his longevity hurts his legacy for some reason. The guy was a pretty damn solid player for a long time. And had a 2 year peak where he was a lot more than just solid. He was a star in 2002 and 2003. Pretty damn good career
  5. Salmon came up big in that series too. Good times!
  6. You are the one denying reports from well-respected/informed writers, not the other way around. It's amazing how clouded your judgement gets with regards to certain people inside the organization. It's possible you end up right, but just as possible you are dead wrong. To be spouting off "no chance Arte pulled out" after that tweet is bizarre delusion
  7. Because Arte Moreno has always been completely logical in his entire tenure as Angels owner
  8. Arte Moreno needs to sell. What a fucking bitch
  9. This is peak Angels fan stuff. Just gut wrenching honestly
  10. Joc RF Trout CF Rendon 3B Ohtani DH Upton LF La Stella 1B Simmons SS Castro C Fletcher 2B Lord have mercy
  11. Goodwin was a good solid player last year but Pederson destroys righties. Big upgrade
  12. Joc/Stripling are worth more than just Rengifo but I don't think we will be sending back TWO top 10 prospects. That would be a lot
  13. It's amazing how the dodgers keep making out better and better in this seemingly lol
  14. You would have to think. But Friedman has fleeced many teams in his day
  15. The dodgers better be giving up additional pieces if they’re getting Graterol too. Friedman is a wizard if not
  16. Maeda is quite a bit better than Bundy and probably Tehran too. Let’s be real here
  17. Only people who live in fear pull out. One last stroke!
  18. Can’t we just give them Juan Graterol and call it a day?
  19. I think people are underselling the addition of Pederson. This team needs left handed pop and he brings a lot of it. Takes some of the pressure of Ohtani to be in the lineup all the time. He can now focus more on pitching which is where we need him most. Hope this trade happens
  20. I agree with your point. Also Stripling is 30. I’m not sure I would describe that as old. Not young either though
  21. I’ll be honest, I think Joc has earned closer to the 9.5 million he’s asking for than what the dodgers offered
