    Machado to Padres....

    Wow! He went to the Padres. I would have never thought so.
  2. Again, I don't care as long as it doesn't curtail us getting any other free agents. If so, it may be counterproductive.
  3. OK, so the gorilla in the room asks, " Should Eppler have seen this coming?"
  4. Like I said, St. Louis, Boston and NY and like, Chuck said, the Giants, are the hallmarks of the league. I don't think the farm system is the only thing that makes success like that happen.
  5. I guess I picked C. I've been an Angels fan for a long time.

    The Angels installed rapsodo devices!

    I wonder why this is just being incorporated now. Is this a controversial system in any way?
  7. I don't look at sustained success as 5 years (2005-2009) I look at it as more a Yankees, St. Louis, Boston staple. I would say that we had very bad luck with Morales and Adenhart, but I think we'll still need help from free agency.

    How long... you think Mike Trout will be the best in MLB? What is your criteria for assessing whose the best?

    2019 record

    Piggybacking on the Pecota thread, if the Angels had no important injuries (either little injury of any starter or lengthy injury of any supporting player (6,7, or 8 starter on the roster or bullpen lessers), what would you say their record should be this season?

    Scioscia's first year as a manager he went 82-80. Do you think Ausmus should do as well, better because this isn't his first year, or it's all about the personnel?

    Tag Line

    Every season the Yanks and Mets create tag lines for the new season like "The best is yet to come!" Do the Angels create those also? If so, has the 2019 slogan been created yet?

    Tag Line

    Sigh. So what's the answer?
  13. I think successful teams in this era have a concentration on offense. Yes, pitching is important, but primarily you have to score runs.

    Angels Sign Ty Kelly

    Where do you guys find these things? LOL!

    Two Questions

    1) Is it possible that Eppler got the okay to sign Machado or Harper, but decided against it? and 2) if all the free agents Eppler signed go bust, is it possible he would be fired for that despite their low cost?

    Two Questions

    Maybe he initially asked him and then decided not to do it?

    Kole's 2018 was a ton of bad luck

    I just hope Eppler knows what he's doing. More than any position I think we needed a change there.
  18. Very likable and intelligent young man. I wish he and his wife the best. Hopefully, the trade is the best thing for him and the organization. He should be better with contacts!

    Is it possible for Eppler to sign a big-name free agent without Moreno's endorsement? If so, could Moreno legally renege on the deal?
  20. Torridd


    That what I was asking! Let's say, a GM made a "mistake" and signed someone against the owner's wishes, would the owner have any legal right to negate the transaction?
  21. Torridd


    Would that mean that Moreno has to endorse all signings or may there be some type of amount that Eppler needs his approval for?
  22. Torridd


    I was hoping from elaboration from someone.

    Thanks, I meant player.

    Trout free agency

    Generally, I don't write a lot about Trout and I'm not trying to beat a dead horse. I was inspired by Second Base's prediction that Trout would re-sign with us even though he files for free agency. I want to know if you agree if Trout files that he'll re-sign with the team. I don't think so.
