  1. Scherzer (will be 37 on Opening Day)Verlander (will be 39 on Opening Day)Kershaw ( will be 34 on Opening Day and wearing a back brace and worrisome elbow)Greinke (will be 38 on Opening Day) These guys are bulldogs. When was the last time the Angels had a 37 year old No. 1 SP? Been awhile. When was the last time Angels had Bulldog SP, period? We get the crafty nibblers. Besides Ohtani. And he is very good but I don't consider him great yet. Sample size is too small.
  2. I skim thru and didn't read all the post. Did anybody find it a little strange that Trout says "We have a lot of money, I trust Perry and the guys at the top, WE TALK EVERY DAY." Do players talk to management every day? How much weight is given to Mike's input about team direction or which players they should try to get? I like Trout but shut up and hit the ball. Trading Ohtani and Adell should be strongly considered.
  3. It is precisely because of his marketability that trading him should be strongly considered. IF done correctly, Angels could score big time. Where does keeping Ohtani get us?
  4. Did they buy Adell a 1st baseman's glove yet? If the Angels org. cant teach him how to shag flyballs, other orgs. got to be thinking maybe they cant either. Adell's trade value has plummeted, and rightly so. I would trade him asap. Before he becomes Brandon Wood.
  5. Marsh is the real deal. It is not physical, it is mental. The guy is calm, cool and collective. He looks like he belongs. Just like I predicted Fletcher to be a starter on a MLB team, I also believe Marsh will be an All-star on a MLB team. I hope it is the Angels.
  6. There is probably young talent out there being overlooked because they do not fit the MLB mold. 6'2" 205 lbs and has potential to hit 25 HRs. Think Jo Adell. The more Fletcher type players the better the game.
  7. If player were not paid while they are unable to play, they would take preventable maintenence much more seriously. Guaranteed money causes complacency in even the best of them.
  8. I said this a month ago. But there is no guarantee he can play 1st base either.
  9. 25 million would make most press a little. He is the real deal. Glad to see him back to old self.
  10. Canning is Richards. A MLB Pitcher that could/should be great (ok, much better) but lacks bulldoginess. I hope he finds his inner killer spirit soon. If not he will make a lot of money stuck in his mediocracy.
  11. So lets just say that the slide step instead of the high knee kick has been a true epiphany for Jo Adell (Only 6 Ks in past 27 PAs, big improvement on 21 Ks in the previous 47 PAs before that). That is great news but he still sucks defensively and there is no light switch moment for learning how to shag a flyball. Buy him a 1st baseman's glove or let him DH and put Walsh /Otani in LF. Desperate times call for desperate action.
  12. I predicted David Fletcher would be a MLB player when most thought it would never happen. I know he is struggling to live up to his contract now but he will be an asset for the next 5 or 6 years. Adell will not be a MLB player barring a major intervention. On the other hand, Brandon Marsh will be a solid MLB player. Great? We will see. Good ? Yes.
