    First off...your over reaction to the move is strictly awesome. Secondly, the manager is still trying to win games....The Angels had a two run lead, heading into the bottom of the 8th. You have a rookie 3Bman, who has only had 89 games in his career as a 3bman. Logic would tell you that Scioscia was not expecting an implosion by the pen, and he was putting the best defensive players on the field to win the freaking game. Destroying the confidence of Ward, by removing him for someone who has better defensively is not a problem.

    How about all-in on Corbin?

    How about all-in on Corbin?

    Big fan of Corbin's... He had TJ surgery back in 2013, but since: 2014 - 0 games played 2015 - 16 GS 2016 - 24 GS/36 GP - 155.2 IP 2017 - 32/33 - 189.2 2018 - 25 Gs - 155.2 IP 3.6 WAR and is only 25 years old
  6. Not hate...AP should not be batting in the #4 spot. He is not a clean up hitter anymore. Not with a .706 OPS (.632 w/ HR and 4 2B's since the All Star Break)
  7. AP batting #5....baby steps. If Trout returns, pencil him in at 3, Upton at 4, Ohtani at 5 and AP at 6
  8. Career OPS of .627 Last year it was .736 Again...you know what you are going to get with Rivera. He should not be apart of the 2019 Halos team. If he can play and prove to be healthy and someone makes a move for him great....otherwise he wastes a spot (IMO).
  9. It doesnt hurt...but Rivera is not a rookie...you know what are going to get with him. Playing him will only prove he his healthy enough to help a team behind the plate. For me, I totally had written Rivera off. Life is what it is.
  10. Just cut Rivera loose. He has been a lost experiment and I'd rather see Arcia and Briceno play.

    Gameday: 8/10. A’s @ Angels. #VladHOF

    I knew that...but it means that AP is the DH. Let AP play 1B and let Ohtani DH.

    At what point does Mike think of Shohei as a full-time player? I am growing tired of playing the 'match-ups' Marte's slash line against LHP: .213/.232/.413/.645 Ohtani's slash line: .175/.277/.246/.523 It is time to move on from Marte and let Ohtani get regular AB's. Quite freaking platooning.

    2019 Bullpen

    We all know that our pitching has been stupid this year...Has Billy made moves looking forward to 2019? The acquisition of Jerez and Buttrey to go along with Anderson, Parker and Alvarez seems like the framework of something better than we have seen. I also like Robles and Cole. A few mulit-inning arms.

    Tropeano to 10-Day DL; Williams Jerez called up

    According to the broadcast last night he did.

    Starting pitching or a MOTO bat?

    Pitching...hands down. Possible could fill a void at 3B, unless Ward is tabbed for that spot. For next years staff....Heaney, Skaggs, and Barria. Hopefully Canning and ??? I'd like to see a top of the rotation type of guy. Even if that means moving some prospects. Also some BP arms. Now as to a MOTO...if Manny wants to play 3B for the Halos next year....I'm all in. Otherwise, let the young kids play.
