    Love the Kingdom of Heaven directors cut. I had never seen the theatrical cut but after listening to the audio commentary it's hard to imagine how any of it was coherent considering what was cut out.

    Why are people excited about the hiring of people underneath Minasian? I thought the only way for the Angels to win is with a President of Baseball Operations?

    With a guy like Happ the money isnt a big deal. The risk is in the performance. The Angels have a decent amount of pitching depth at this point, but what they cannot afford is another Teheran type shitting the bed.

    Ridley Scott is such a good director.
    If you haven't seen it, check out the director's cut of Kingdom of Heaven. It's a seriously great film that would've won awards if they released it instead of the theatrical cut they put out.
    It truly transforms the film in very meaningful ways and is absolutely woth your time.

    Yes, but generally speaking you have a higher chance of hitting quality when you put quality out in money/trades, even though there are no guarantees on results with either. That really wasn't Eppler's strength. Obviously, you need to have some ability to find talent reasonably often (e.g. Bundy as opposed to Teheran) unless you intend to spend your way into the playoffs.

    I understood your point but disagree.  You can easily improve the pitching staff without moving Adell or Marsh.  Will you get a front line starter?  No, but I think you have PTSD from how poor of a job Eppler did relative to what can be done or what has been done by other teams by avoiding absolute disasters.  
    You don't have to replace absolutely awful with an all-star.   Sometimes solid is ok and a substantial improvement.

    He's played 31 total MLB games in the last two seasons, and before that had a marginally better than average OPS. Does he have an upside that he hasn't tapped into yet?

    Funny, that's kind of what I like about it. The stakes are low, but the writing is great. The decisions seem insignificant but show always seems to frame it in a way that illustrates the subtle ways in which they actually are quite important.

    I actually liked the ending. I think the show started to struggle once they leaned into showing the cylon's perspective. Don't get me wrong there were plenty of good moments to arise from it but sometimes it's better to maintain the mystery than to pull back the curtain.

    AngelsLakersFan reacted to Dochalo in The AL West is wide open   
    For the first time in a few year I feel like the division is wide open for the taking.  
    There isn't a team that clearly sits on top of the others.  The A's and Astros could certainly make some moves and be better than they are right now but the Angels are in a similar boat.  Those three teams are all at a similar starting point in my estimation and this off season will determine the winner.  
    The Angels might be the only team of those three to actually spend a little to improve.  But they all have issues to deal with.  
    Whoever finds their way to 93-95 wins will take it.  But to get there some good things would have to happen for any one of them.  
    A's - rotation is very young outside of Bassit who has to be smoke and mirrors (right?).  I could see them trying to improve at 2b or SS but we know they won't be bringing Semian back.  Luzardo has to be a beast which he's capable of but it might be too early.  The pen has thinned out considerably with no Hendricks
    Astros - I know we all hate them but they're still a very solid team.  Lineup if very good still if Alvarez gets healthy.  Unless of course they continue to feel the impact of not being able to cheat.  I think they'll definitely add to their OF.  The big question is their rotation.  Can Valdez do what he did over a whole season?  Is Greinke too old?  Will McCullers stay healthy?  After that it's pretty thin so they'll likely add a rotation arm.  Pen is meh.  
    Angels - Lineup is good but needs someone solid at 2b or SS and possibly RF.  Rotation has some arms but none are likely high impact and needs depth.  Pen needs some help.  
    The difference makers will be who gets that arm for about 4-10 mil that does better than expected.  A's an Angels are both likely in need of a MIFer.  Who come out on top there.  Astros probably get a good deal on an OF.  Who can add those couple of guys to what are now all mediocre pens.  
    This division is going to be won or lost by the moves made this off season for any of those three teams.  Something that hasn't happened in awhile.  Going into the last three or even four off seasons, the Angels were clearly behind other teams with a lot of ground to make up.  It's the best opportunity they'll have in awhile to take control of the division.  Maybe even for 2-3 years.
