    Three Lineup Questions (and Answers) for 2020

    I’m sure he is. Dude has an Ivy League education, all you are asking him to do is look at a schedule, put Ohtani every Sunday and with the help of Eppler put arms every 5th day or so using off days and minor league call ups to get a schedule to work. Hell one of our guys on here figured it out, granted it was one of the smart guys, but still, if fans who do this for fun can figure it out certainly someone who’s job it is can figure it out.

    Three Lineup Questions (and Answers) for 2020

    I don’t think they will re-sign Kole, I am thinking it will be Goodwin’s job (not that that is a good thing) coming out of spring training until Adell is ready. I think we will see Simmons extended but only after we see the starting pitching resolved. They need to know what the budget will be for that before spending more money on Simmons. I think we will see Rengifo start the season in the minors and Fletch and LaStella up to start the year with Thiass as our back up corner infielder. If LaStella proves he can play some first base then maybe we see Thiass in the minors to start with Rengifo up. Grandall is a luxury item that can only happen if we sign Cole and acquire the second arm in a trade where the pitcher makes very little money.

    The example he gave was of a guy that was toast by the age of 28. He threw 2300 innings by that point and threw less than 600 after age 29. So no he didn’t have “no issues”.

    Gameday Thread: 8/25 Angels @ Astros

    Why would anyone want to listen to the manager after a blow out loss?

    Ok. You asked me a question I answered it.

    You are the biggest narcissist on here. I give you exactly what you’re looking for, attention. I’ll stop giving you that attention. You’ll still be the same dude, you’ll never change.

    Of course he isn’t because if they don’t get hurt he will have one less thing to bitch about going forward.

    Hey it’s cool it has been almost 24 hours since you gave us another narrative that we all roll our eyes at. Also your reading comprehension is dogshit.

    Andrew Luck retiring

    Well IP if he could spend some money and acquire another functioning brain that would be pretty legit.

    In before this thread gets ruined by the usuals.
  15. Hey Clod can you send us a copy of Albert’s birth certificate since more than likely you sent in a formal request for that as well.
  16. Weird huh. So how many is it this season? Ohtani and the 5 man rotation. Angels only thought they needed Trout. Angels don’t know they need more than Cole. What am I missing? I am sure there are a few dozen more.
  17. They didn’t, but they had to get that done so they knew what the budget was going forward. Plus it is entirely possible and more than likely probably they didn’t value guys in the market to go over what they thought was a fair or reasonable offer. They made offers to everyone but I am guessing they put a value on that player and they got more somewhere else. We dodged a ton of bullets this past off season. Before you bring up Corbin he was always going to the east coast. Also he wanted to be a Yankee and we all know they could use a starter.

    Arm Mismanagement

    Yes but the middle game he threw 10 pitches. If that’s the cause then he was going to get damaged at some point.
  19. I want Houston to make moves like the Greinke move. Keep trading away prospects, it is the quickest way to their demise.
  20. Yep exactly this, not some narrative created by dudes who hate on positive opinions.
  21. I’d love this. I guess I can’t be trusted.
