    A player on the Angels who had a good career but currently sucks should be released, whereas a player on another team who is available because he currently sucks should be acquired because he previously had a good career.

    What's funny is that my initial reaction wasn't shock, or anger, or sadness, it was honestly "Gee that isn't a surprise" I'll bump this thread if the April Fools joke is prophetic down the line....

    Press Conference

    The one thing I got from the press conference is that Billy Eppler is the MAN. Ohtani,Trout and the farm system all have his fingerprints on them. Seeing Mike Trout getting choked up about the Angels made me proud to be an Angel fan today.Great day.

    Everyone knows the reasons Trout stayed. Trout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, they paid him $430 million, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

    Because that’s how he played growing up in the 1950’s.

    I'll bet you $5,000 that Cozart won't be released before May 1, 2019

    Box score doesn't do him justice. Fastball had great movement even though he didn't miss a ton of bat. tons of weak contact. kudos.

    May 13, 2017; Anaheim, CA, USA; Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout (27) celebrates after scoring off a solo home run against the Detroit Tigers during the seventh inning at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Mandatory Credit: Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports By David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer If the rumors are true, and at this point they appear to be so, Mike Trout has agreed in principal to a deal that will make him an Angel for life. Wow. What a way to turn around the offseason. Prior to today, I would have given the Angels a “B-” for their efforts during the offseason, but all that changed today. This deal changes all that because the biggest potential issue for the next two years has been settled. Mike Trout will be here for another 12 years. If the proposed numbers hold true, Mike Trout will sign the largest sports contract in history. And well he should. No other player in the history of the game has been as good and productive as Mike Trout at a similar age. If I could start a baseball team with any single current player in baseball, by far my first choice would be Mike Trout. Not only is he an incredible talent on the field, he is a an incredible asset off the field. His interactions with fans are not forced or reluctant. He genuinely engages with fans before the games. His love for baseball and enthusiasm to play is infectious. He reminds people of all that is good and right in sports, He is humble and honest. He lets his actions speak for themselves and doesn’t seek the limelight. He brings us back to a time when we played baseball and demonstrates our love for the game. When Mike Trout signs this contract, he will do the one last thing that separated him from the pantheon of baseball greats: he will create a specific time and place for his legacy. Just as Cobb, DiMaggio, Koufax, Ruth, Williams, etc. are all associated with one team and one time, Trout will be forever remember for the time he played and the Angels. Fifty years from now, whether they are Angels fans or not, baseball fans will tell their grandchildren how they saw Mike Trout play for the Angels, just as our grandparents told us about seeing their greats play. In 2014, When Mike Trout signed his first contract extension, I asked him at the press conference what it meant to him that an entire generation of Angels fans would grow up seeing him play. I compared it to Trout’s hero Derek Jeter, a lifelong Yankee. With this contract extension, multiple generations of Angels fans will grow up seeing him play. And like his hero, it will all be for one team. That’s something special. But, even more special, is that Angels fans will get to see him evolve. When Mike Trout first broke into the Major Leagues, Torii Hunter took him under his wings and helped show him the ropes. After Torii left, Albert Pujols helped to mentor him. But, in an interesting story written by Bob Nightengale for USA Today, Mike Trout watched video of the Angels’ top prospect Jo Adell, and even gave Adell his phone number to help him. Mike Trout made an integral part of the Angels’ presentation to Shohei Ohtani by calling and speaking with him, and has since done a lot to help Shohei adapt to life playing baseball in America. That’s the evolution of Mike Trout–from a rookie to a face of a franchise to a mentor to his teammates. This is the Mike Trout team. This is the Mike Trout era. After the Angels won the World Series in 2002, my favorite moment was seeing Tim Salmon–Mr. Angel–hoist the trophy. Knowing that there were several points where Tim could have left for more money to play for other teams, watching him hold that trophy was magical. Everyone could see that his loyalty and dedication to the team had been rewarded, and the fans loved him for it. When Mike Trout hoists the World Series trophy–which he will do as an Angel–it will be something even more magical. Just as Salmon was rewarded and loved, so will Trout be. We, the fans, know how much he did (and will do) to earn that moment, and we will thank him for it. There will be a bonding between us and him that will forever connect us in that moment. An Angel for life. Not many players can say that. But that’s what Trout chose to be, and we are so lucky that he did. View the full article

    So, you're saying that because they didn't do what the "they aren't doing/spending enough" crowd wanted them to do they had the financial room to sign the single most important free agent in the existence of the Angels franchise? It's almost like they had a big picture view of things instead of focusing on the two years they knew they had him under control for... What a dumb plan... Thank you for spending the entire winter (and years before that) sharing your insights and keeping us in the loop. I've read a lot of baseball message boards since the advent of the internet and never seen a member of the media be as involved/frank with the fan base as you have been while interacting with us. We say it a lot, it's probably old hat... but we greatly appreciate your insights and narrative busting. Tell Billy and Arte thanks...

    F*ck these Facking losers

    It’s not 6 games, it’s 9 YEARS without a playoff win. Angels fans have every right to be cynical.

    90% of us overreact to bad news and losses. @Lou is always a maybe & the world's best online thread bumper. We can always GM, manage and coach the team better than those in the Angels brass & staff. @Dochalo, @ettin & @Inside Pitch are smart baseball guys. <add what you've learned at AngelsWin.com over the years here>
