    Even IF we get Gerrit Cole...

    Cole is the must sign. After that we still need a second arm and I'd rather do that via FA than trade. As I've mentioned a few times I'm really into Alex Wood (2020 would be his age 29 season). He'll be cheap and has a really solid track record with the Dodgers in the past. Odorizzi is another I like as well. Either of these guys would be solid 2/3s to build around Cole, Ohtani, Canning. At the end of the day we need at least 2 arms and doing it via FA seems better than trading for the arm especially since we'll lose a pick on Cole.
  2. We'd get some epic action shots from his drone too.
  3. The potential for this happening makes me want him more.

    Realistic Angels trade options

    His wRC+'s since joining the Angels. 2016- 90 2017- 103 2018- 109 2019- 85 He's coming off back to back 5 WAR seasons and going into his age 30 season in 2020 about to hit free agency. I like Simmons. He's obviously an amazing defender and has tons of tools and smarts you can't put in a stat necessarily. Great clubhouse guy too and a fan favorite. However, is the difference he makes at SS worth the cost for his salary vs what Fletcher/Rengifo produce PLUS what we can acquire by trading him?

    What evidence is there that he'll get better in his 30s? His wRC+ hovers right at 100. Literally average. Defense has been down this year (granted might be due to the ankle injury) compared to years past. With Rengifo and Fletcher along with the guy we drafted this year we have options. Much cheaper options that we can put money towards a true need in starting pitching. Simmons could be put to good use with that one more year on the contract.

    Morosi: Angels are interested in Matthew Boyd

    Agree with Strad. Dodgers have made all of their big SP moves via trade or development. Greinke was the last one. Most/all of their FA SP signings have been for mid tier guys. Not saying the Dodgers won't check in on Cole and see but this is a guy the Angels almost have to overpay for. Do whatever it takes to get him signed.

    Morosi: Angels are interested in Matthew Boyd

    I'm wondering if the Angels get Cole in the off season and sign 1 of Odorizzi or Alex wood. Jake will be in his age 30 season and Wood will be entering his age 29 season. Pairing Cole with Odorizzi/Wood along with Ohtani, Canning and company would go a long way. Like Jeff has said in the past. We don't have the luxury of having assets we can sell for prospects that we can afford to lose building towards 2020 and beyond. 2019 is a wash at this point. Look to 2020. We keep the farm intact and improve the rotation significantly as well by adding those 2 FA pitchers. Let Canning, Saurez, Barria continue to start and hopefully figure some things out to end 2019 on a good note and come into 2020 with some confidence.

    Tigers apparently looking to keep Boyd. They haven't been blown away with any offer. They asked Houston for Tucker gives you a bit of an idea on the market for him. Then again.. This is coming from Nightengale so this probably means he's getting traded.

    Tyler Skaggs, R.I.P.

    This just absolutely heartbreaking. Makes my heart go cold just at the thought of this. Such an amazing person and always great with fans. A reminder that this really is just a game and these are actual human beings out there. I'm truly gonna try to refrain from personal insults to players anymore. This was very humbling. Something we all should do. RIP, Tyler. TS45

    Haha Arte told the Dodgers to fu** off.

    It's stupid either way. This only benefits the area for both sides. CA is such a financial clusterfuck as is why not do something good for the area and pump some revenue into it along with bringing a mall back to life? Angels fans in Ventura County/LA County can easily access the 66ers for away games in this case as well. Who wants to go to the IE? Especially with Lou there

    Goodwin

    I was wondering what we'll do with him when Upton returns as well last night. The guy is earning his keep for sure. Whether that's sustainable that's obviously to be seen. He's bound to drop off a bit but even so he'll still be a very solid option to take Kole's spot in RF. I'd be very pleased if Kole continues to at least hit for some power and hopefully we can deal him at the deadline for a bullpen arm and give Goodwin the starting job the rest of 2019 and compete for the spot in 2020 with Adell and Hermosillo. Fortunately, we still have a month+ till we have to worry about it and by then we should have a much clearer report on Goodwin and what he's capable of.

    When Ohtani arrives...

    The team will get better and more importantly Trout will get better. He'll actually get pitches to hit with Ohtani protecting him.
  13. The biggest thing for me as a fan (besides watching Trout) is starting pitching. When we had Weaver/Haren at the top of the rotation it was truly fun watching them. They had lights out stuff and made watching them a joy. I felt incredibly confident in the team's chances of winning that day. Not a single one of our guys even remotely gives me that feeling today. Skaggs is the closest due to his stuff but even he is far from it. He's more like CJ Wilson confidence level. I know he has the stuff and potential to do it but will he? That has to take a toll on the offense too. I know 2 of our big bats are out right now so things will get better but it's a lot for the current group to take on. Taking on two bottom of the rotation FA signings and hoping they'll fill the gaps is blind faith. You can argue the team is building for next year, sure. Ohtani could be that "Ace" we're talking about but I'm not putting all my eggs in that basket. I'd love some insurance to build WITH Ohtani. Who knows how Heaney will pan out. Hell, who knows how most of our rotation/prospects will pan out (obviously). We need some stability at the top. Depth is great especially with how crappy the Angels luck has been of late with SP injuries but there needs to be a horse on the hill every 5 days we can truly be confident in. If we have 4/5 guys with 4.50+ ERAs is that actually depth?
  14. Yeah it's going to come down pretty damn hard. People here are scrambling to get their cars some protection. Had to take my car to an underground parking garage to keep for the night. It's nice right now. Sunny and 80 but it's supposed to start rolling through around 10pm here. Tennis ball sized hail they're projecting.
