    Cozart is utter garbage

    Nothing is worse the Failbuena who now in his Angel career over 170 games is hitting .210 with a WAR of -0.3 this year, keeping him over Cron was a horrible decision. So what if he is a left handed batter, he couldnt hit a friggin beach ball

    Cozart is utter garbage

    We absolutely don't need to give Jabari Blash a chance. This is a team that is trying to make the playoffs. They either need to get Calhoun fixed in the next 2-3 weeks or you go and get an actual major leaguer. Waiting around praying that Chris Young turns back the clock to 2009 or Blash does anything with that swing is just frustrating and will cost the team games. We have Trout, Simmons, and good starting pitching (even without Ohtani). There is absolutely no reason to settle for awful production from guys we know suck

    Youth Infusion 2019

    Am I wrong, or do we see some significant returns from the farm system starting in September 2018 for regular roles in 2019? I think the Angels have been very veteran oriented with the position players over the last few years. We've seen the pitching prospects really develop and contribute, from Richards to Shoemaker to Skaggs, Meyer, to Heaney, Barria, Ohtani (does he count?) and Tropeano. We've seen relievers like Middleton, Bedrosian, and such make an impact. Yet the most significant bats we've produced in the last 8 years are: 1) Trout - Obviously. 2) Calhoun 3) Trumbo 4) Cron. Next would be people like Marte, Bourjos, Cowart, Navarro, Conger, Perez. The farm just hasn't given the Angels a good caliber starting position player since the first four above. Not compared to the starting pitching. We've been mostly a free agent and trade facilitated position player grouping since Aybar, Kendrick, Izturis, Morales, Kennedy, Molina, Figgins, Kotchman etc. in the early to mid-2000's filled out and then replaced the 1990's homegrown roster of Salmon, Anderson, Erstad, Edmonds, and Glaus. But I see talent at AAA in Thaiss, Fletcher and Ward who could all have regular roles in 2019. Hermosillio seems a bit overmatched, but not by a lot, and might be ready for full time in 2019. Renifigo is killing it at AA, as is Jared Walsh and Jose Rojas. And then in A-ball, Brandon Marsh, Jo Adell, and Jahmai Jones are all not exactly killing the ball, but definitely worth watching, soon. And Adell really has picked it up after a few rough games to start off the level. Even Baldoquin is hitting in A-Ball. I am very encouraged and can see Ward, Fletcher, and Thaiss filling roles that this year went to Marte, Valbuena, and Kinsler. And then in 2020, Adell or Marsh in Right Field.

    I’d still take Calhoun over all present options. Blash is fucking awful.

    Everyone keeps acting like Grichuk is such a loss he's not. This year his slash line is .181/.262/.394/.655, in 107 PA.

    Can he at least foul off the meatballs down the middle? Blash swung through five of them in two at bats

    As is said on this board: "It's not my money". Still though, Angels gotta start getting better returns on their $$$ investments at some point. The contracts add up and the lack of production to go with it continues to sink them year after year. At least Cozart's contract isn't massive in dollars or length to where it hurts too badly.

    Lol stop it. Mariners are overachieving this season and have a poor farm system. Their long-term outlook isn't encouraging. Angels are set up for better sustained success moving forward and I'd be surprised if they aren't consistently better than Seattle over the next 5 seasons

    Blash is awful. I don’t care what he does in AAA, he can’t hit up here, because his swing is fucking retarded.

    Whatever happened to parents letting their kids be kids? Neither my ex nor I ever pressured my daughter, other than to honor a simple commitment. She tried youth soccer, but once she tired of it, we didn't push her to stay in it after that one league ended, just honor her commitment for that youth league for that season. She loved acting, and in fact got a middle school award for her lead role in Bye Bye Burdie. But when she felt burnt out on acting after that year, we respected her wishes to back off from it as she had completed her commitment to that performance. Parents, let your kids be kids!!! They will only be a kid once. Muchas gracias

    Discussions like this one are really amusing to me. Some people speak as if they have some authority. They post like they have actual knowledge of what someone is thinking or is going to do. They post like they've had face to face conversations and are privy to information no one else has. It's complete BS. What's really funny is how some people think people know who's actually going to be in a position to make the post-season consistently. I am guessing that most players would like to factor that into their decisions when they're making decisions - but truth is no one really knows. It's a complete farce. Not even the so-called "experts" know who is going to be the best team year to year. Who had Milwaukee, Atlanta, and Arizona as division leaders? Who had the Mariners? Remember when the Tigers traded for MIguel Cabrera? Weren't they "locks" to win a couple of world series'? What happened to the juggernaut that was supposed to be the Texas Rangers with their "awesome" pipeline of young talent? Truth is - winning is hard. Winning it all is even harder. After 2016 - a lot of people had the Cubs labeled as a "dynasty." Now, it's the Astros. Baseball is a funny game. It will humble anyone. Some of you were ready to crown the Astros champs just a couple weeks ago. Anything can happen. So... Trout has time to decide what he wants to do. NONE of know what factors will play into his decision. NONE OF US have a clue. I wish I had a dime for every time someone predicted a player would go to his childhood favorite team, etc. I'd be freakin' Arte Moreno rich. We don't know. We can speculate - but don't try and post as if you are some sort of authority on the matter. You ain't jack. None of us know what Trout is thinking or what his process will be. We don't know Arte's mind set either for that matter. I'll tell what I'M thinking though... this conversation is moronic on many levels. Don't misunderstand me. I don't have a problem with the conversation itself - it's the attitude some of you present in the process. Give an opinion. Have a take. But don't pretend like you know more than anyone else here with regards to Trout's future. You don't.
