  1. That would just be the cherry on top of this shit sandwich, but you’re right.
  2. Stradling, you’d make a hell of a press secretary.
  3. Goodwin would’ve caught it.
  4. ESPN defending Upton at all costs too.

    Do we contend in 2020?

    You're right, it is probably not likely. Let's just hope that he does bounce back next season. He concerns me, but hopefully I am wrong.

    I said it's not likely. Not to mention that it's an opinion, too. Heaven forbid we discuss hypotheticals or what ifs.

    Guys with no trade clauses have been traded before. Upton also seems like the type of guy that needs to be wanted. So, if you found a spot that he would want to go to and he knew they wanted him and the Angels did not, he might be open to waiving. I know it's not likely, but you have to see if you can move him. He is probably still decently attractive to someone. Hopefully he picks it up before the end of the season. Either way, you're not getting much and it would be strictly to clear salary.

    Trevor Rosenthal

    I wasn't referring to Rosenthal specifically. I was referring to Harvey and others.

    Sure, but for whatever reason, this very rarely, if ever, works for the Angels. We need to stop making reclamation projects our key FA signings in the off-season.

    Right now, no. Some moves I’d explore in the off-season: - Do not pick up Calhoun’s option. Start Adell opening day 2020 or do the Vlad Guerrero, Jr., but I think we will need Adell’s help from day one. - Try and trade Upton in the off-season. If you can find a taker for his salary, do it. - Try and trade Simmons in the off-season. He can get us a major league ready piece plus a worthwhile prospect. - Sign a combination of Cole + anyone else. Or, sign Bumgarner and Ryu. If you do one of these, trade Andrew Heaney. - Release Albert Pujols. - Re-sign Tommy La Stella. - Try and upgrade the offense at catcher, even if you lose some defense. I’m fine with Stassi as the backup. Now obviously not all of these are going to happen, but I’d venture to see what each one looks like come the end of the season. Some of them, like trading Justin Upton, might not even be possible.

    Here's the thing: Mike Trout is the GOAT

    Anyone that is comparing the competition Babe Ruth faces compared to what Trout is facing now is a Facking moron. Did Babe Ruth face international talent? You guys are morons.
  12. Garneau hit a bomb tonight.
  13. Maybe he will get older and develop.
