    10 day or 15 day DL... doesn't really matter. Angels' pitchers only use the 60 day DL

    These are probably my two favorite. Especially the DH. The pitcher hitting is the most boring and annoying rule in sports.

    The State of Free Agency

    free agents aren't undervalued, they were just overvalued in the past. also, Harper turned down $300 MILLION. the poor little ball player act is a crock of shit.

    Thanks for posting this Chuck. AW guys & gals, this got my attention. I hope this 'cure' is right around the corner but cancer is complex & different as we all are. Please get checked NOW. Never too early. Cancer Worldwide statistics show 1 in 2 males and 1 in 3 females will have cancer in their lifetime. Cancer doesn't give a crap what age, gender, religion or nationality you are. Been healthy my entire life but 2.5 years ago during an annual physical, a simple blood test showed some out of whack numbers. My PCP was alarmed and said it could be several things from internal bleeding to iron deficiency. She saved my life. After 2 months of tests, I was diagnosed with Stage II Multiple Myeloma, the same rare blood/bone marrow cancer that recently got Don Baylor, Mel Stottlemyre and Lou Brock is dealing with now. Nasty stuff. No cure, but somewhat manageable for many with chemo & other treatments. I NEVER thought I would ever have cancer....that's for other people. But I do and was fortunate it was caught when it was as I am in remission. BTW: I've been a huge Angel fan since '61 and have been lurking here on AW for years. Thanks to Chuck & all the usual AW 'suspects' here that keep me informed and laughing throughout the day. This is my 1st post!! Sorry for jumping on the soapbox. I'll keep my future posts about baseball.

    MLB The Show '19 is playing on Harper's offseason by rolling out a new campaign asking where Bryce will go, and running a simulation on what he'd do on each time. This part was funny. "Across the 30 simulations, Harper averaged 35 home runs and 99 RBI. He won four Hank Aaron Awards, 14 Silver Slugger Awards, three Gold Gloves, two NL MVP awards, one batting title and a World Series MVP award. Fourteen teams qualified for the postseason with Harper on their roster, but only the Angels won the World Series."

    Pujols weight

    Albert came to camp in excellent shape last year. It didn’t help.

    Crisis in Baseball

    "They are again fielding offers, when there are offers, that are identical from team to team to team." The identical offers comes from identical data that says any one particular player is only worth x for y year(s). Teams no longer look in awe of Boras' 60 page dossier on a mid tier player skewing his value by misleading data. They now know exactly what is worth market value and what is just smoke and mirrors. Players holding out just means holding their dicks because it doesn't favor a GM to get Pujol'ed by a long term contract for short term production. Passing on any top tier free agent isn't going to ruin the franchise. Investing in the wrong one will. It's not collusion when it's based on facts. You either want to play and make more money than any other job your skills provide or sit out the season. Pretty simple.

    Trout free agency

    If Trout makes it to free agency, that would mean he and the Angels have failed to reach a deal over 12-18 months of trying, so I highly doubt he'd re-sign. I still think it's more likely than not that he agrees to an extension and never gets to free agency.

    it's players like Longoria who have given owners pause. he signed a $100 million contract then proceeded to have the worst two seasons of his career.

    Are you asking if we’d complain/be unsatisfied if the Angels won a championship with big ticket FA that are signed ? this seems like the most insane concept I have seen on AW in a long time. Possibly the most insane concept I’ve ever seen here.

    Kole's 2018 was a ton of bad luck

    Kole was very lucky last year. lucky he had a job.

    I've been an Angels fan for 20 years. Ohtani's 2nd start against Oakland is the most dominant performance I've ever seen from a Halo. If he can give you 20 starts a year without screwing up his swing, you run with it. Plus, the Angels have talented outfield prospects coming out of their ears.

    Do we have to explain that irreversible damage does not erase itself because of weight loss?

    that's what made the 2002 WS even better. dodger fans didn't know who to pull for. either way, they were screwed

    Let's start talking about where he will go when he's a FA. Too early?

    As I'm sure many of you do - I'll never forget that 5 run 9th inning come back in New York off of him - Capped off by Mo Vaughn's 3 run game tying homer, Erstad's impossible game saving bottom of the 9th catch and his game winning solo shot in the top of the 10th. One of the best games I've ever seen from this team and so much of it was tied to the seeming impossibility of coming back from such a large deficit against perhaps the greatest finisher of all time. Thanks Mariano.
