    If Mike Trout were to sign with the Phillies...

    In 12 years, they can have him.
  2. I was upset too, but when Bavasi said they could just sign two 8-7 pitchers to replace him, all was good.

    The biggest thing I notice this Spring....

    Maybe they feel that current performance, not service time, means something for the first time in a long time.
  4. Because of the intense coverage he receives from the Japanese media, smartest thing to do is to put his projected return date further out than it really is.
  5. It's a win, win, win for Trout if it's true. If the Angels get back to being perennial contenders again, he wins. If he suffers injuries and becomes a lesser player, he wins. If the Angels are still an average to below average club in a few years and showing no promise, he can ask for a trade, and dictate exactly where he wants to go.

    Payroll budget is 50% of revenue

    The team has gone up in value about $100,000,000 per year on average since Arte purchased the team. I'm sorry, but I don't give a rat's ass on whether he loses a few million dollars, or even a few tens of millions of dollars per year. He can cash this franchise in for over 1.5 BILLION dollars more than he paid for it right now and that number is going up every single year.
  7. He gave his answer, and that should be enough. However, he'll be asked the same question a zillion times until he either signs an extension, or becomes a free agent. In the mean time, the media will imply that he's being difficult when he eventually seems irritated being asked the same question for the zillionth + 1 time.
  8. I think they got one of Sosh's quotes in there by mistake.

    Angels in on Moose

    I know Eppler said they're done. However, If a 2009 Bobby Abreu bargain basement type opportunity comes along, they should take it.

    Come on down, Dan Jennings

    Finally, a left handed reliever who's dominant against left handed batters. .570 OPS last year. Righties crush him though.
  11. Albert is to surgeries what Evel Knievel was to broken bones.
  12. Why anybody, other than the Rockies, would want to throw 300+ million dollars for a guy who has a career .262 batting average and .787 OPS outside of Coors Canaveral is beyond me. Dude wouldn't come anywhere close to .787 OPS as the Big A, and a Gold Glove at 3B is only worth so much. Simmons has put up OPS of .752 & .754 the last two years and has been the best defensive player in baseball, not just at shortstop, but the best defensive player at ANY position. How much you gonna pay him? He's only 1 1/2 years older than Arenado and plays a much more important defensive postion.

    Dresser drawer find

    Greatest single at bat in franchise history. Hope he finally put his demons to rest.

    Kole's 2018 was a ton of bad luck

    The first three months of the season (and the last month), I can't even count how many times I saw him make solid contact on balls that in the past would have been over, or off, the outfield walls and instead were routine catches well short of the warning track. You could see the frustration in his reactions too. He was not driving the ball like he had in the past.

    What's up with all these 1-year deals?

    Unfortunately, I'm starting to think that if Trout won't sign an extension, this is being done to make it easier to dump all the major contracts and do a Astros type rebuild..
