  1. Let's get Verlander...

    His girlfriend would have encouraged it...
  2. Rough year for Angel fans

    I enjoyed August....so I guess you can add me to the club....
  3. I may be in the minority but, if he's healthy, I'd be more inclined to keep Ramirez in the rotation...he wasn't as good or consistent as Bridwell but he was pretty good.....I may be like Linus holding on to his security blanket but Ramirez and Bridwell were both good enough and consistent enough that, although some of the other guys may have more upside (Skaggs for one) I'd be fine with both penciled in to the rotation for next year.....it's nice to have a little depth, at least until the injuries start to pile up...
  4. Except he had first inning struggles....not great for a reliever, one inning or multiple innings...
  5. Nobody has a crystal ball but Upton is, by all accounts, a good guy who enjoys playing baseball...
  6. I wouldn't think so...it's not common but you can re-do a contract if both sides agree...
  7. Have thought from the day we got him that the most likely scenario was a restructed deal, before the opt out deadline...we'll see...
  8. 35 Years ago today

    The offense in 86 was good but it was really good in 82....the pitching was maybe a little better in 86, particularly with Witt at the top of the rotation (he was outstanding in 86)....unfortunately, D Moore was hurt late in the year in 86 and ran out of gas...sad story there...
  9. Joe Girardi?

    Buster Olney doesn't think so..... http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=20965406

    Good story....86 team was probably a hair closer because they were really on the cusp...82 team may have been better offensively ...they could really hit....Mike Witt was pretty dominant in 86, not sure we had a starter that good in 82...
  11. How are our Vegas AngelsWin peeps doing?

    The constitution applies to all state laws, by virtue of the supremacy clause....any state law is subject to federal constitutional interpretation, which means a state or city law that is too restrictive can be challenged on 2nd amendment grounds ( a good summary here: https://www.loc.gov/law/help/second-amendment.php) ...Otherwise, I apologize if I got you bent out of shape, not my intent....It's a tough issue...I am not anti gun but I think the pendulum needs to swing toward some restriction, at least some sensible restrictions....Now, I'm back to baseball....
  12. How are our Vegas AngelsWin peeps doing?

    Silly...just silly....Read my lips---there is nothing wrong with the 2nd Amendment on its face...it doesn't need to be repealed, I never said it did.....it does need to be interpreted to reflect life in 2017, same as any other law passed 230 years ago....The Constitution has been interpreted by Courts since it was written. Do you respect the part that made slaves 3/5 a person for representative purposes? Good grief, why is that hard to understand?
  13. How are our Vegas AngelsWin peeps doing?

    Of course not...but the technology of 230 years ago doesn't fit well with 2017...the right to bear arms was and is a sacred thing, part of our fabric...but it shouldn't be worshiped to the point that we can't apply common sense to modern technology...hunting weapons, weapons made for protection just aren't the same as weapons that can cause the carnage we saw Sat night...
  14. How are our Vegas AngelsWin peeps doing?

    Never gonna happen...and there will be many, many more mass shootings while nothing changes.
