  1. I love the Angels pr team right now. Everyone who signs the Angels were in till the end. Trying to appease the fan base.

    AL West Standings since 2013

    How about the standings since Eppler took over?
  3. I don’t usually watch baseball outside of the Angels. I went to a couple padres games this year mostly because I like downtown SD and while I was there I rooted for SD but I could care less. I also went to the Dodgers WS just to watch the Dodgers lose which was fun in itself. I can’t usually watch with out having some rooting interest. As for football I either watch my team play or I watch because I’m interested in my fantasy players doing well or guys I’m playing against do poorly. I can’t watch just to watch I don’t find joy in it. I play sports as well but I don’t just play to goof off I want to win. Losing sucks. I get from a teachers standpoint where u can’t view your students as winning and losing and there is a process to it.
  4. I watch them to do well. I don't watch them just to watch the process. If the Angels or any of my teams I root for are doing poorly I don't just watch for the fun of them doing poorly. The hope is for them to win. Yes I won't be satisfied 100% of the time that's life. But the goal is to win and if that doesn't happen changes need to be made to win. I don't care for moral victories. I don't believe in momentum from game to game. Winning at the end of the day is all that matters. If the Angels made it to the World Series and lost I wouldn't say well that was fun at least I got to watch KRod strike out some people. The Angels not making the playoffs has sucked... it doesn't matter that we have Trout. I could care less if Trout was on the team. He's great but I would much rather have this team in contention to win a title every year with a bunch of no name scrubs than watch Mike Trout hit the ball 1 out of every 3 at bats.
  5. Winning is secondary? Actually the only thing that matters is winning. You obviously didn't play sports and I cant imagine why you watch them. If at the end of the day you lose what is the point? I can't imagine what your job is? I lost every customer our business had but it was about the journey.
  6. Dynamics are changing. The reason Machado Trout and Harper are going to get paid very very well are because they are young. If Trout hits free agency at 31 I don't see a team giving him a 10 year contract. I wouldn't want to see the Angels give him a 10 year contract at 31. Teams are going younger and are not giving crazy length contracts to guys who aren't young anymore. No team should want to pay Trout 40 million dollars a year at 38 let alone 41. Also there is no owner in sports (Maybe Mike Brown) that will give their GM 8 years to build a winner. If the team isn't seriously contending this year or next Eppler will be gone.
  7. Not sure? I can't tell by your typing.... Why do we not have enough to offer him? Would you have rather had Matt Harvey or Kikuchi? How about Cahill or Kikuchi? The Angels have plenty of payroll if they choose to use it. Maybe they weren't that interested? We still don't have the terms of the deal yet... So I don't know why you just assume it's because we don't have the cash to offer him a deal
  8. We have resources at our disposal. I’m not sure what you mean by “what we can offer”
  9. It made the most sense. Young starting pitching is what this team needs.
  10. Wish the Angels signed him. Wonder what the terms of the deal are for?
  11. Went the cheap route. Will be 33 years old next year. Maybe he has a bounce back next year with offense. But he basically is the same thing as Maldonado was last year. I wanted to get an upgrade at the position. Oh well. On to a Kikuchi.

    How to finish this offseason

    Sign Harper. Trade Calhoun. Sign Grandal. Sign Robertson. Sign Kikuchi. Trade Cozart.

    The Kikuchi Thread

    I don’t think he gets less than 13 million a year.

    I think I would be ok with Grandal for 4 years that would put him playing catcher till 33. I wouldn't want him over that age though.
