  1. Sure, we have a lot of depth at SP. However, many of the pieces in the depth chart have proven time and time again to be unreliable. Heaney, Skaggs most notably. This team absolutely can not go into next season hanging its hat on Heaney and Skaggs to lead the rotation, especially with Ohtani on an innings limit returning from TJ, with the expectations of better results than we have seen the last 3-4 years. I believe it is imperative that the Angels make a big play for Gerrit Cole next off season. The time has come to push the chips in the pot. I would also love to see a trade for Ma
  2. I just hate that you can vote so many times.
  3. Fletcher wont be needed to play much OF now.
  4. I'm not sure I would move either of those two for a Bumgarner rental. However, I can see a bigger package being created for Marcus Stroman who still has 1 more year of Arbitration. Stroman could be our horse for the 2nd half of the season for a Playoff push. Then next year, if we can land Gerrit Cole, the rotation would be looking really really nice. Cole, Ohtani, Stroman, Skaggs, Heaney, Canning, makes for a solid 6 man rotation with several guys ready to fill in for injuries and Ohtani, who will certainly be on an innings limit coming back from TJ.
  5. 9 of the Mariners 13 wins have been against the 2-10 Royals the 3-8 White Sox and the 4-9 Red Sox. FWIW.
  6. I think Victor and Gubi make a great team. Gubi can be a little repetitive but he has a good personality. Terry Smith on the other hand is really starting to annoy me. It seems like he is constantly behind the play and he takes way too long to say what happened, even on balls and strikes.
  7. My guess is that Trout will play in minor league games the rest of the week away from the media. He will then head home to Anaheim on Friday to finalize the deal. It will then be officially announced with a press conference Sunday before the Dodger game.
  8. I never bought the newspaper before but I had to get this one. ANGEL FOR LIFE!
  9. Today is the second greatest day in Angels history! Rejoice Halo fans! Thank you Arte Moreno and thank you Mike Trout!!!
  10. Last spring training Heaney had the same issue. I think he missed his first start of the year was all.
  11. Sure Trout's response isn't music to our ears but what is he really supposed to say when asked that question? Could he say, "Ya, I saw how Free Agency played out this year and I want to negotiate an extension now" sure he could, but why would he? Instead he gave the standard ball player answer, "I don't want to talk about it I just want to play ball". I'm sure he has been advised to not talk about negotiations with the media by either his agent and/or the FO. Trout has never been great at interviews and he is obviously uncomfortable talking about the subject I think this is
  12. Back in 2016 Law said the Angels system was "by far the worst I've ever seen". Here we are 3 years later and Law bumps the system up to 7th, quite a testament to the progress Eppler and company have made.
  13. I think it will happen during Spring Training; similar to when he signed his first extension in March '14.
  14. Zaidi expects to make a move in the next few days... https://www.nbcsports.com/bayarea/giants/farhan-zaidi-expects-giants-roster-move-next-three-or-four-days
