  1. If the Mets stumble, I'd love to see us get Stroman. His style + Simmons/Rendon/Fletcher would make for excellent results -- plus, we could get a head start on resigning him to a deal. However, we'd probably have to wait until next off season to get him.
  2. My view is that Ohtani will, at worst, be a really good #2-type starter (easily the ace). Canning/Bundy/Heany will probably average out as three #3 starters. I half suspect Teheran is going to fall off a cliff, but there is almost no way that he's not better than whatever we were trotting out at the end of last season. I think Sandoval will end up being a surprise, locking up a spot in the rotation -- both this year and next. Our 6 Man staff approach f worries me. Not only am I worried about Teheran, but one stretch of missed games from anyone will be tough to watch. I just hope to God
  3. I genuinely erased Tovar from my memory. I looked him up just to check to see if you made him up.
  4. So you mean that there is more than one way to reach the majors? Are you sure?
  5. I wanted Crochet, but mostly because I was assuming Detmers was gone by 10. This was the pick they had to make. If you could come up with a reasonable wish list for what the Angels would get at #10, it would probably look a lot like Detmers: A college pitcher that can rise quickly (over under on his first start is 18 months) Has a clean delivery and a clean injury history (important because Angels) Has + command, + control, and a fiery attitude (missing this since Weaver) Has three good pitches, with some development left (Cutter might be a legit 4th pitch, or h
  6. Whitaker absolutely should be in. Grich should probably be in. Lofton probably shouldn't, but he wouldn't be the worst player to make it,
  7. It's more complicated, actually. There is no clear evidence which way meant what. It's not even clear that they even did "thumbs down" like that; it's more probable they would use thumbs up to kill, then wrap their fingers around their thumb for sparing a life. But anything is possible because no one bothered to write it down.
  8. Even so, you have to make this deal. Not only because Rengifo isn't going to play that much here (especially if we we extend Simmons at some point), but also because our return (Stripling and Pederson should be worth about 5-6 WAR next year; Stripling is old but controllable, and Pages looks like a pretty decent gamble) is too good.
  9. Meh- the Pedo-Pederson connection is much more ripe for the picking.
  10. If memory serves, Goodwin crushes lefties. EDIT: Yup. .844 OPS the past three years vs. lefties.
  11. You are thinking of that classic Stix song, "Sail Away From Me:" A gathering at AngelsWin went way above my head They had a dumbass argument, and I wish you all were dead. So I say Farther Away? Further Away? Just Sail Away From Me
  12. This concept comes from the Old English word Furþor, which came from "fore-ther" or "more fore." "Farther" is just an form that developed when people stopped thinking of "Fore" in the way we used to.
  13. Patrick Sandoval. Projections (even the super stingy ones) suggest that he is an average-ish pitcher right now; any development or new pitches could make him a sneaky mid-rotation starter by the end of the year.
