  2. I haven’t heard anyone else call him that. If so, then ohh well. I thought I was the original one.
  3. Also, I still have some hope for Justin Anderson. He seemed over worked and had a lat injury second half of last year.
  4. Thank you very much. @Chuckster70 your amazing work and product is always appreciated.
  5. I didn’t vote because my choice was not an option. My choice would be the Shohei Ohtani press conference. It’s the only one I attended live. What an electric day it was.
  6. This is crazy talk, I know. But, is it possible to sign both Cole and Strasburg this offseason? That way we may try some smaller trades to fill the rest of our needs and then see where we are in terms for spending on other free agents. A rotation started with then would instantly give us a chance to compete for a playoff run (On paper). We could then try and swing a trade such as with the Giants and try and take Samardzija off their hands and maybe even offload Cozart (Granted we may have to give up some prospects). I wonder if Arte could push a payroll like that. Or even if we could make some roster and financial moves to make this possible. I know this is fantasy, but it may also be possible and our best bet at contending quickly. Thoughts?
  7. As well as the annual video game console football series.
  8. I’d rather us get Robertson, Kikuchi, Grandal, and trade for Arenado. But I know that’s a warm piss in the wind. But what I do know is that there are “rumors” about us being interested In Keuchel, Robertson, and Harrison ( all pretty recently), so there is hope we may sign another player or two.
  9. I understand that rengifo is the new hot pet prospect for everyone, but he hasn’t Had MLB success yet. So why is everyone ready to pencil him in to start when people like fletcher have already had success at the MLB level. Fletcher is like an after thought around here, which I dnt get. Give the dude a chance, as he can be our spark plug like he was at the end of last year. I think Fletcher may surprise people, win a starting infield job with us, and have a solid year with the glove and bat.
  10. Sign Keuchel; trade for Arenado; sign a smaller bullpen arm; trade Cozart for whatever we can get for salary relief; and then watch us be contenders again.
  11. I am also in the “let’s get machado” camp. Based on Fletchers numbers/spreadsheet, we have about 62 million room before we hit the tax threshold. And we know Eppler likes to have about 12 million extra cap to work with. That would give us about 50 million to spend. I know our actual payroll will be about 12-20 million more, so this would require moreno to push his actual payroll higher than he normally does. But with 50 million we can still sign machado, a sp (someone like Lynn) and solid reliever and still have about 12 million before the tax penalty threshold. Translates to: we have money to spend if we chose to. Also we can free up more by trading Cozart(if we sign machado) and not paying arbitration on shoemaker or others. That would give us more money to spend.
  12. That roster was kinda pathetic. To blame a lack of post season success on a manager when He has a roster like that is sad. The fact the angels made the playoffs that year with such a roster should be celebrated. Name a manager who would have had post season success with the roster the angels have had in the past 5-7 years? And tell me how that’s Scioscia’s fault again?
  13. And the angels would be back to having one of the worst farm systems of all time. And then imagine how shitty that would be if Harper left in the off season. No need to gut the farm. I am all for sending prospects for one impact player like Arenado (who has hinted he would like to come to the west coast). But for someone like Harper who will assuredly test the market and likely sign with who ever offers him a brinks truck full of cash, that would be foolish. Especially since Eppler has waved the white flag and signaled this season is over. If we are to get Harper it would make sense to go after him in free agency where it would not gut our farm.
