    Angels sign Cody Allen

    Angels obviously gearing up for next year's FA class which I am totally okay with.

    Angels sign Cody Allen

    Career 2.98 ERA but had a 4.70 ERA last season. Hopefully it's an outlier and not a sign of major regression.

    lol Brewers.
  4. Would love nothing more than for Eppler to step in again and cock-block Jerry......

    The pure awesomeness of this comment is that it can be either sarcasm or serious and still make sense.

    All these trades today had Jerry itching for a fix
  7. Fletcher tweeted that we can expect both of them up at some point next season which makes the Harvey and Cahill deals a lot more understandable. Eppler and co. have to be really high on both. I keep seeing reports that Canning tops out as a mid-rotation arm but I honesty see a 1 or 2. As for Suarez I’m higher on him than I am Barria and see him as a mid-rotation guy. In my opinion, their development this season is more important than Adell’s.

    Not sure about anyone else here but I would easily choose Cahill (age 30) for 9 million and Harvey (age 29) for 11 million at one year each than a 34 year old Anibal Sanchez at 2 years, 19 million.

    Trade for Realmuto or sign Grandal

    Depending on which top 100 list you look at we also have Brandon Marsh, Jahmai Jones in the top 100 and someone just outside the top 100 like Suarez

This felt like such a theme all season long that it may be difficult to remember the time when the Halos system was one of the worst in the game. Now it boasts one of the toolsiest outfield prospects in Jo Adell and two more Top-100 prospects in Griffin Canning and Brandon Marsh. Matt Thaiss and Taylor Ward provided some hitting intrigue toward the top levels while Jose Suarez did the same on the mound. Patrick Sandovalwas picked up from the Astros for Martin Maldonado and finished with one of the best statistical pitching seasons in the Minors -- a 2.06 ERA, 145 strikeouts and 29 walks in 122 1/3 innings across three levels. Trout will need help to break through with his first postseason win, and right now, it's looking better than ever that that help could come internally.

    Angels Sign Matt Harvey

    Wow he flew so under the radar after being traded to Cincy that his stuff is night and day compared to his start of the season with the Mets. Fastball sitting in the mid-90's, slider from 88-90, and a curve 83-86.

    Angels Sign Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey screams like the guy the Angels would target after signing Doug White as their pitching coach. I have high hopes that White can have him turn it around.

    Doug White is going to have his work cut out for him with this one.
