    Angels compete by what year?

    How often do teams get a chance to add a 26-year-old superstar, who will only get better, and not lose any prospect currency in doing so? How often is one of the top catchers in baseball with multiple years of team control on the trade market? These are moves the Angels can make to provide immediate and long-term help.

    Angels compete by what year?

    We should be competing in 2019. We should make the necessary moves to make that happen. 1. Sign Machado 2. Trade for Realmuto 3. Sign a Starter (Reliable: Sabathia, Wild Card: Harvey) Those moves ensure we compete for 2019. By 2020, we have some internal upgrades (Canning and Adell should become key contributors) and can fill other spots as needed.
  3. What about Ohtani? That's why I would like to see him traded while it is still possible. He will eventually not have a spot here with Ohtani taking DH at-bats and Marsh and Adell looking more and more like future contributors.
  4. Good point. I would like to get rid of him tbh. Towards the end of his contract, he will be a second Pujols, not doing much other than eating money and blocking young players like Marsh from having a spot.
  5. If we signed Harper, I would rather see us trade Upton for a good starting pitcher and hold onto Adell still. Sign Markakis as a stop gap for the next 1-2 years while Adell develops. Can you imagine how OP an Adell-Trout-Harper outfield would be?
  6. I definitely agree that Tallion would be a great pick up. I'm just not too keen on the idea of giving up Canning and/or Adell to get him. These are two guys with a lot of upside and I would rather take a chance or them developing into the best they can be.
  7. I don't think Tallion is even worth ONE of Adell or Canning. In my eyes, Canning is going to end up being just as good as Tallion if not better and we're only a year or two from that reality. And Adell is on track to be #browntrout
  8. I just want the Angels to get Realmuto damnit.
  9. Yusiel Kikuchi is officially being posted. Should demand a contract similar to what Corbin will demand. Described to be a top of the rotation arm. I worry about his shoulder and his durability, which he has had issues with in Japan. He could be a great acquisition but could also be the newest member of our 60 day DL if we got him
  10. Sounds like a lot of wishful thinking, to be honest. Odds are, no one will magically become an ace or shutdown closer we need. We need to look for help from the outside and get someone that IS good. Not just hope someone will swoop in and save the day
  11. Trout extension money would not come in to play until 2021. His current contract is good until 2020

    Do not bring in Josh Donaldson

    Let's sign Manny Machado. He's a perfect fit. Package Ward in a trade for Realmuto
  13. My Ideal Plan - For the luxury tax payroll, the $162.77 million according to Jeff Fletcher is the actual amount of present obligations for the 2019 Season. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Q7dlNaSqB4vip6QD88MCaahpPjiZrS7dgOam_TrElLg/edit#gid=0 - The luxury tax threshold, which owner Arte Moreno has indicated as the spending limit in years past, is $206 million for 2019, leaving roughly $44 million to be played with. 1. Sign Manny Machado -to a 10/350 mil contract. (35 mil aav, 9 mil left) 2. Trade for JT Realmuto - for Jones, Suarez, and Ward (Realmuto is projected to make $7 mil in 2019, 2 mil left) 3. Mike trout extension 4. Eric Chavez as the new manager Lineup 1. Simmons - SS 2. Realmuto - C 3. Trout - CF 4. Machado - 3B 5. Ohtani - DH 6. Upton - LF 7. Calhoun RF 8. Thaiss/Pujols - 1B 9. Fletcher/Cozart - 2B Bench: C - Arcia IF - Fletcher/Cozart 1B - Thaiss/Pujols OF - EYJ Rotation 1. Skaggs 2. Heaney 3. Barria 4. Pena 5. Shoemaker Optional moves: Trade Calhoun and Cozart for scraps/payroll dump ( Free's roughly 23 million, 25 mil in total) Sign Markakis to 1 year deal for 12 mil, team option for 2nd year.
