    Trumped

    It must be. I just went to his real Twitter page and scrolled down quite a bit. Can't find this anywhere. The only Trump tweet about Trout is from 2013, he called him "one of the greatest players ever".

    This Beto guy is really creepy. Among other weirdness he tried to scare his wife by reenacting the shower scene in Psycho. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/beto-orourke-tried-to-prank-wife-with-baby-poop-report-says

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

    I just hope they're not mesmerized by Albert's HOF numbers and instead do things rationally, even if it means Pujols sits and his feelings are hurt.

    You guys realize that we'll still have three more years of Pujols batting cleanup behind Trout?

    HEALTHY pitching is the real necessity here. I'm fed up with all the TJ surgeries and other assorted ailments on this team. Just stop it already!!!

    Well, Pujols doesn't come off the books for three more very expensive years, but you're right, those many prospects will be the pieces to build a contending team around the greatest player of our times. Things are looking way, way up for the Angels!!

    I half expect ESPN to have black funeral bunting on its anchor desk this morning.

    lol, 12 years should be enough time to build a contender around him. You would think.

    Why is optimism so hard?

    That's my mood too in the spring. First week or two of the season, fresh and exciting. Then (usually) come the injuries and teams like Houston passing us by. I hope we can hold our own through April and May. That will really help my optimism for 2019.

    Why is optimism so hard?

    I think the darkest mood I ever experienced as an Angels fan was after we lost our 14th game of the 2002 season (against six wins). It was an excruciating loss in Seattle, 1-0. We left the tying run on third base a couple times in the late innings, including the ninth. Seattle's run scored on a throwing error. The team fell 10.5 behind first, in April! I was so mad after that game, all I could think of was "Fire Scioscia." Especially after the horrible 2001 season. Then, miraculously, we won 21 of the next 24 games, and the World Series.
