  1. Unforgiven

    Dipoto was literally as good at building teams as little bill was at building houses.
  2. Should we do more? (Add another starter)

    Bill Stoneman vs Stroman.... I say hold on to the prospects. If were gonna make a move, do it via FA. But personally, id lean towards bullpen help. So much of this hinges on who we already have. If ohtani is truly a front line starter, were good. If richards is healthy on top of that, were great. If heaney or skaggs or shoe can be an effective 3, were set. But if the bullpen stumbles, and last year was a fluke... I say keep the farm for the deadline, and give the rotation a bonafide bullpen to take over their leads.
  3. Angels linked to Addison Reed and Zach Britton?

    Didnt realize it was that high. How much would we save if we DFA Cron? Or anyone else who might be in the same position? My understanding is the luxury tax is at 200 mill now? We could probably still get a veteran starter for that, or a plus reliever. Not both. So its a coin toss. Insurance of another starter, or a strong bullpen to support the front end of the staff?

  5. Can Angels win World Series?

    Agreed. I think as exciting as it is thst were finally making some real moves, bear in mind, we're also banking on best case scenarios... anyone remember the padres making far bigger moves a few years back? When they grabbed kemp? .. For our own history, we got rid of trumbo and said no woriies, ibanez! Then joyce! Etc etc. Again, were improved for sure, but not without question marks. And like Doc said, i have a feeling the bullpen was a bit lucky. Id be more comfortable if we improve that with a bonafide shut down guy.

    His walkup music sucks, though. So buyer beware.

    Where are you getting that from?
  8. The Official 2017-2018 Hot Stove Thread

    Was gonna say thr same, but figured id get blasted. I agree he shouldnt be inked in as thr middle of the order guy, but pretending a guy like kemp is comparable is silly.
  9. Can Angels win World Series?

    Plus: At least 1 if not 2 of skaggs/heaney/shoe return as 80 percent of their best case scenario....which is a lot of ifs. I also think were a little too blase about eppler fixing the bullpen cheap. As pleasant of a suprise as it was, it could just as easily be an unpleasant one next year. Lastly, while we upgraded 2B and 3B, both have maintain. Im not expecting star levels, but both have to at least be average bats. We upgraded for sure, but we upgraded from crap, so it cant just be "well, its better than last year". And simmons' bat is still not a guarantee. Im not trying to sound negative. I think we are for sure a wild card contender (with a few more tweaks). But if were asking if this team is a real contender...a whole shit ton has to go right. Maybe we're due for some good luck finally...

    I thought the dodgers were still over the luxury tax level? Arent kemp and agons contracts similar paywise at this point? (Hell, the dodgers were still paying some of kemp i thought?). It would explain why they didnt bite on stanton though. Wonder who their target is next year? Gotta think its harper?

    Wth! Why would atlanta do that??? Good move for the dodgers.
  12. Dont remember that one. If anyone is interested, looks like this series in on youtube. If youre interested in this kind of stuff, its definetely worth it.
  13. Ohtani Received PRP Injection in October

    Would be pretty rad. 2 way player and all.
  14. Angels hire Eppler as GM

    Meant to point that out. Good call!
  15. Next Move?

    True. If we make one more move? Id like tonadd another moto bat. But where? Only place would be C, or replace Calhoun. So not sure its doable. A bonafide starter would be nice. Insurance for richards/skaggs/heaney. Pushes one of the back end guys to long relief. But maybe the smart move is a plus reliever, then sit on the excess money.
