    Kole Calhoun trade value

    Okay, I think that trade proposal is far fetched, because someone will ante up a lot more than a Calhoun caliber veteran. That said, trading him this season is a fragile thing, given Tyler's passing. Keeping the core together through September may be the best way for the team to start healing.

    Kole Calhoun 2.0 and 2020

    Yup - and as good as Adell’s numbers have been and as he can be, what’s to say he doesn’t go through challenges at first? Trout, Upton, Vlad Jr., Moncada...all had some growing pains initially. Is 50 games of sub-.700 OPS gonna help us compete in 2020? Is losing Calhoun’s .800 OPS (and better defense) worth the $14m in savings? Surely Adell will be better than that someday but he might not be right away. I don’t know that he gets the chance to play out that time this year, and I’m not sure the Angels should chance it to start ‘20. Also, what if he winds up actually not being the talent we hope? Just having a harder time imagining the Angels will feel like they need to save that money. The $30m freed up should be enough.

    It just seems that the chasm between the two extremes is wider than it's been since any of us were born, or at least the late 1960s/early 1970s? And on the extreme left, AOC, Tlaib, and Omar aren't helping the country any. Is there anyone on the far right as far in that direction as they are to the left?

    Its farther than far fetched. Literally 0% chance they would even entertain the thought of it. They would laugh and hang up

    Honest question re: border crisis

    Humanitarian view points are solid. For darned sure, families should NOT be split up from their children! Here's the issue that not many talk about though. Isn't having illegal immigrants in the country a slap in the face of those immigrants who came here the right way and eventually became citizens? Is it really that much more difficult of a process to become legal today, than it was in the previous century?

    Schedule after trade deadline

    If the momentum (Skaggs / #werenasty) continues for another week, Arte and Eppler will have to buy in and do some trades. No way around it, if they want to build a winning environment. Ideally, Eppler can swing some deals that might get us some pitching, on a longer term (2, 3 years). Just don't think they can sit until next year. Arte might just have to go past the cap, even if its only until the end of the season when 30-40 million comes off the books. This team has heart, can't ignore that and no way they trade Kole. so many of these young players mention Kole in there interviews as being a clubhouse leader, right there with Trout
  16. The Los Angeles Angels weekend sweep over the Seattle Mariners will be remembered in franchise history as one of the most memorable sweeps ever. In an emotional weekend where the Angels began the series honoring the late Tyler Skaggs, the Angels beat the Mariners three games straight and in the process outscored Seattle 28-5. The Angels meanwhile honored Skaggs on Friday by all wearing his number 45 and having his mother Debbie throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Skaggs died while in his hotel room as the Angels were in Texas to play the Rangers on July 1. In Friday’s game to open the series, the Angels exemplified outstanding offense and pitching in clobbering the Mariners 13-0. On the mound, Tyler Cole and Felix Pena combined for a no-hitter. Cole opened the game by throwing two innings and had two strikeouts and zero walks, while Pena came in and threw seven innings of relief and had six strikeouts and one walk. The only Mariners batter who got on base was designated hitter Omar Narvaez, who walked in the fifth inning. Offensively on Friday, the Angels recorded 13 runs on 13 hits. Mike Trout and Justin Upton each hit a home run, and Trout had six runs batted in. Andrelton Simmons led the Angels with three runs, while Simmons, Trout and David Fletcher each had three hits. On Saturday, the Angels beat the Mariners 9-2 on home runs from Kole Calhoun and Albert Pujols. The home run from Pujols was a three run shot in the seventh inning that put the Angels up 9-2. Angels rookie second baseman Luis Rengifo led the Angels with three hits. Matt Harvey meanwhile was strong on the mound, as he only gave up one earned run in five and two thirds innings. Then on Sunday, the Angels beat the Mariners 6-3. Once again the Angels won with the long ball as Calhoun homered again and rookie third baseman Matt Thaiss hit his first career home run. The Angels bullpen was excellent as Noe Ramirez, Cam Bedrosian, Ty Buttrey and Hansel Robles combined for four and two thirds innings of shutout baseball. With the sweep, the Angels moved above the .500 mark at 48 wins and 46 losses. They are five games back of the Oakland Athletics for the second wildcard spot in the American League.

    Schedule after trade deadline

    After July 31st: 7 vs. BOS 6 vs. TEX 6 vs. CLE 5 vs. OAK 3 vs. TB Another 12 games vs. sub .500 teams (9 in August), and another 13 games vs. above .500 teams (10 in September). If the Angels split the 6 games vs. HOU/LAD coming up and sweep SEA and BAL (10-3) heading into the DET series before the deadline, we should consider buying. If we start August 60-50, winning 30 of the 52 remaining games (.577) would bring us to 90 wins. What we have going for us this year is a great bullpen, and Trout/Ohtani paired in the lineup every single game. Not having Trout intentionally walked all the time is a big deal.

    Kole Calhoun trade value

    As i said, not balanced. But the 230 isnt the issue, what game have you been watching? 230 is the new 275 as long as it has pop and OBP, lol

    Kole Calhoun 2.0 and 2020

    You do need a core with stability and continuity. Even in these days of players coming and going every year or two. Calhoun fits integrally in this core on and off the field. Since he seems to have stabilized his hitting within a predictable range, he is a known quantity on offense. And a better than average presence on defense and in the clubhouse. I'd gamble on keeping him through next year, and depending on club performance and prospect progress, make a longer term decision around the trade deadline next year. The team is in a fragile emotional state now and need solidarity to regain a collective competitive attitude. The franchise won't be dramatically improved by what he brings in return and his value now may have longer term intangible benefits.

    Kole Calhoun trade value

    They're not going to trade an ace-caliber starter for a guy who's hitting .230 and is a free agent after the season. Perhaps Calhoun could be included in the deal, but it would take a lot more than just him.
  23. The week has arrive for The Open. X-man, you can do it.
