  1. The Official 2017-2018 Hot Stove Thread

    Angels are too complacent. Jim Johnson is a joke. And besides Parker, the rest of the bullpen is too inconsistent. They really needed a sure thing like Reed but they just blew it.

    Huh? Newcomb came up this year and pitched very well. Yet you're presuming Newcomb would have contributed 0 war last year and the next few years.

    Good post. Similarly, I disliked the trade because I felt the angels were quite a ways off in making the playoffs. I questioned why they would trade Newcomb who can develop into a potential ace by the time this team is ready to compete in a few years for a good and more expensive SS at a time when you're not gonna make the playoffs anyways? The timing was the only reason I disliked the trade. However, Eppler has managed to build a really solid team in a short period of time, but there is still a lot of uncertainty on this team that is going to have work out in order to reach the playoffs.

    If Vlad goes in as angel, do the angels have to retire his number? Just wondering what would happen because both Vlad and Trout wear/wore 27.

    I dont know what Darvish wants, but he did say that he wont give the rangers a hometown discount, and that he will basically go to the highest bidder. Also, I thought Ohtani wanted to be the lone japanese star on the team. If that's true why would the angels go after Darvish?

    He must have gotten the flight numbers mixed up because Darvish lives in Texas. Poor Billy, come home soon.
  7. Brandon Marsh Prospect Article

    He was actually one of the worst defensive CF's in the game last year. And other than 2014 which was astronomically bad defensively, he's been mostly about average.
  8. Pre-Scioscia: the angels farm produced Glaus, Salmon, Anderson, Molina, Edmonds, Percival, Erstad, Washburn, After Scioscia: the angels added Krod, Lackey, Shields, Weaver, Morales, Kendrick.Saunders, Napoli. Name another organization that successful in producing so much talent in a 10 year period? You can spout this BS about baseball america ranks, and maybe the truly naive might fall for that shit, but I've been an angel fan too long. Nice try though.
  9. Scioscia inherited the best farm system in baseball and then an owner who kept the team in the top 5 payroll in baseball starting in 2004. He came at exactly the right time when the angels were an up and coming team and the rest of the AL west were on the decline. And what do the angels have to show for it? One stinking world series when they should have had 2 or 3 at least.

    Ya after Dipoto, I said this team was 5 years away from competing again. Eppler might be proving me wrong. I love the job he has done. He might be the best GM we ever had.
  11. Uniform options

    These are my favorites as well. I like the contrast in colors rather than red on top of red, I like blue lines along the jersey, and even the "angels" across the chest looks a lot better than the plain one they have now. I'm ready for some new uni's. I dont like the uni's they have now that are completely saturated in that ugly red color. They look more like templates than professionally made uni's.

    No, it wasn't worth it. All of Dipoto's trades had me incensed. His shtick was to trade young cost controlled players for old and expensive players which really hurt this organization. The best move he ever made was leaving. But there's nothing we can do now. At least Eppler is very smart, and is slowly undoing the damage Dipoto has done.
  13. It's going to be exciting watching highlight reel plays every single game.
  14. Ya Upton did read the market right and was smart about forcing the angels hand in giving him another year. There's no way in hell he gets 5 years on the open market and that's why I questioned why the angels did it. It seems like they were outsmarted in this one. But in the end, I cant blame them because they desperately needed another power bat. I just hope it doesn't prevent the angels from resigning Trout.

    I dont think so. There's always a sucker out there and someone will bite.
