    Astros Dynasty?

    Are you positive or possitive?

    It’s ok to think I’m wrong. No ones really wrong it’s their opinion on wins and losses and how people view different things. But I appreciate your input just like I do the rest of the regular posters here. At the end of the day it’s just people talking about a team they love wanting to be good again and a sport they enjoy watching with people they mostly enjoy talking to about it. Hope you have a blessed day. Enjoy

    Projections doesn't change the facts of realities. this team has been a 4th place team 3 out of the 4 years and 20 plus games out of first. This team isn't competing. So whether you want to call it tanking or just being bad. In reality it isn't much difference in my eyes. A win is a win and a loss is a loss. No GM/Manager/Owner tells their players to lose games on purpose or not give it their all on the field, they just put an inferior product on the field that's not as good as the competition. As of late that's exactly what the Angels have done whether you call it tanking or not. At least 21 games out of first place for 4 straight years is just whatever you want to call it to justify whatever narrative you'd like to call it.

    What the Astros are doing right now is pretty impressive. You have to give them props. But yes I think dynasty definitely means multiple championships. Patriots are unfortunately the team that comes to mind when I think of dynasty.

    You read this board plenty. Out of a handful of people did people really think we were going to compete this year? Finishing 21 games back or more and finishing 4th place 3 out of 4 years I wouldn't really call that competing would you?

    So instead of finishing last we finished 4th 3 out of 4 years and finished no better than 21 games behind 1st place. Is that really competing?

    I’m not spinning anything. I literally woke up couldn’t sleep read some stuff and posted what his numbers were. I didn’t skew anything. I didn’t cherry pick anything. Didn’t go on a angry rant. Just said it was cause for concern. That is all.

    What does a fan base views have to do with a player signing a contract here? Players sign because of a lot of reasons fan bases don’t see. If I’m not mistaken but didn’t San Diego who’s been “shitty” for years sign a handful of high priced free agents the last two years?

    Yup. Never said he was done. But I guess narratives right? Just cause for concern and trends are going downward, he’s getting injured and he’s getting older. But no where in that post did I say he was done.

    How is it one year I just posted his last 4 years of his ops and it’s going lower the last two years. That can’t be refuted can it?

    I don’t know what you’re getting at. I suggested tanking years ago. We didn’t. I don’t know why it’s brought up now. We haven’t been good for 4 years. That didn’t change Trout signing and it didn’t change Ohtani signing. We got both while we still have made the playoffs once since Trout has been here. You’re suggesting. If we had a different plan 4 years ago that Trout and Ohtani would definitely not have signed here. I’m only saying you have zero way of knowing if that is true or not. All we know are the facts. The Angels have spent a top 10 payroll each of the last 4 years. In those 4 years we have not made the playoffs, but have signed Trout and Ohtani. That is all we know.

    But you have to admit the trend isn’t going the right way in terms of his numbers right? At the very least it’s concerning...
