    Trout 12 years/$440 million! Its done!!

    Great and amazing news going into the season!! After Harper signed, I thought this might happen but didn't hear anything for a few weeks. Second best day in Angels baseball history!!!

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

    Red Sox always and it's because of their fans, not the franchise. Yankees are a distant second for me. Guess I would root for the Phils if Trout were to sign or is traded there, but then Harper is there and I couldn't do that!
  3. I haven't been able to see a lot of the minor league guys and was thinking Casey Kotchman when I read that take. Not a slugger but someone with a solid average, good glove, and decent contact.
  4. A Trout-Arenado-Ohtani core would have been nice to dream about but glad he is staying in Colorado. Agree that this could be a Trout contract road map...
  5. Ha, sure thing. It's like the rookie giving up his number to a veteran. My favorite Halos logo, surprised more people don't use that for their avatar.
  6. Agreed, it's a fair question. It's kind of like the situation the Cardinals were in with Pujols. Do you break the bank for a home grown, once in a generation talent and limit payroll options for 10 years? I'd be much more inclined to do it for Trout though as Pujols was 32 when he came to the Halos and Trout is only 27 now. Much less of a chance of being stung by the back end of that deal! To me, he's the one guy in MLB you do it for.

    Machado to Padres....

    Surprising but good for the Padres. Phillies likely finish the Harper deal now that Machado signed then hopefully a Trout extension. Wonder what the reactions are over at PadresWin.com?
  8. I feel like this has been in the works for a while and they have been waiting for the Harper/Machado deals to get done. He deserves it and so do us fans, just get it done! Cautiously optimistic...
  9. Hi all, came across this article today on The Ringer on how Kole came back from the dead. Pretty good read: https://www.theringer.com/mlb/2018/8/9/17666160/kole-calhoun-los-angeles-angels-cold-start-hot-hitting
  10. Should only be used in reference to John Lackey though...

    Your 2016 HOF Vote

    I'd go with: Griffey (Lock) Piazza Bagwell Hoffman Will be interesting to see if Griffey is the first unanimous choice. Still on the fence about Bonds and Clemens but their talent would have gotten them into the Hall without the PEDs, especially Bonds....
