  1. Taylor Ward reports Taylor Ward was removed from the Bees game
  2. I love his energy! Interested to see how he does with us and how fast he can learn the ins and outs of the Angels
  3. I think he could end up being a steal. He was injured his freshman year and missed most of his sophomore year due to COVID, which hurt his stock. However his Junior year he instantly became the LSU ace, I think we could see him shoot up the depth charts and prospect lists once we see more of him
  4. "Part of a Team USA pitching staff that featured six 2018 first-round picks and won the 18-and-under World Cup in 2017, Marceaux was one of the more advanced high school arms in his class. He had fringy fastball and lacked projection, however, so teams weren't willing to pay him enough to divert him from a Louisiana State commitment. Three years later, he still exudes pitchability and lacks wow velocity, though now he should go around the third round. The scouting report on Marceaux is pretty much the same as it was in high school, with his best pitch still a solid upper-70s curveball with downer break. He has added a tick or two of velocity to his fastball, which sits around 90-92 mph, touches 94 and plays up because of some running action and his ability to command it. He also has a low-80s slider that sometimes is more effective than his curve and a fading changeup with similar velocity. A student of the game, Marceaux understands how to tunnel and sequence his pitches to keep hitters off balance. He pounds the strike zone by repeating his low-effort delivery and employs a high three-quarters arm slot to overcome his lack of size and create downhill plane on his pitches. He's a high-floor prospect with a good chance to become a No. 4 or 5 starter, and perhaps more than that if he can find some more velocity as a pro." Fastball: 50 Curveball: 55 Slider: 55 Changeup: 55 Control: 55 Overall: 45 Per MLB.com
  5. Cubs are reportedly going to be sellers. I could see a trade for Kyle Hendricks as a possibility. I can't envision him costing all that much prospect wise
  6. Playoff caliber hitting if you ask me, especially when Trout and Upton are added in. Imagine if we buy and get the pitching we need... I feel like we're so close to greatness it's ridiculous
  7. Ohtani won’t resign unless we’re winning. If Angels want to keep him it starts with getting the pitchers needed to win. He loves the fans and chose Anaheim for a reason. We just have to give him a reason to stay now
  8. I'd imagine Upton, Mayers, and Ward stay put, but i can easily see any of the other guys on the list being flipped. Ideally all the guys on 1 year deals will be flipped for literally anything so we can see how the young guys do
  9. Very interesting read, makes me even more excited for Sandoval's future. He's starting to look like he can easily be a #3 caliber pitcher (he has had glimpses of a #2 at his best too, just has to start stretching himself out deeper into games). Maybe he will be what Heaney never was. On a side note, I think that Suarez's changeup is absolutely filthy as well.
  10. I don't think think there's such thing as too much starting pitching. By adding more starters, you also help the bullpen by letting guys like Suarez/C-Rod excel in the pen in high leverage roles while filling in for spot starts/injuries as needed. This winter, I still would go out and sign two big starters, say Gausman and Stroman. Rotation: Ohtani, Gausman, Stroman, Canning, Sandoval, Detmers Pen: Suarez, Sandoval, Barria, C-Rod, at least 2 more high leverage guys via trade/free agency, maybe Dick-rod from the pirates
  11. Ohtani and Trout is a great answer, but yeah it saddens me a lot because there is a lot of truth to "Angels are wasting Trout/Ohtani" and this brings that to light. How often do we see two generational talents often regarded as the best or most talented players in the game on the same team? Angels honestly owe it to everyone to get these guys to the playoffs and win multiple world series, it's a fucking travesty it hasn't happened already and straight up embarrassing that in the near 10 years we have had Trout, we haven't won a single playoff game. Arte and the front office gotta pull their heads outa their asses and get some pitching. Need to build a team that can actually win or they will go down as the biggest clowns in MLB history
