    Angels April Predictions

    Honestly now that you mention it, I could see a Hatcher situation developing with Butcher. There are so many similarities there. I could see Dipoto canning him to spark the team. Just a prediction though. I hope the pitching in April isn't bad enough to the point that Butcher needs to be canned.

    Angels April Predictions

    11-16 They usually start slow. They'll start out just god awful again, and then I think they'll go on a huge tear in May. I'm predicting they only lose 4 times in May

    Physioc and HUD.

    I'm in the minority who liked Physioc. I thought he was better than Hud
  5. Realistically, I think it's towards the bottom of the league. A lot of factors go into that. The main one's are what AO posted about the "cans", and the other thing is that Mike Butcher is the pitching coach. I'm hoping I'm wrong, but I just don't have a ton of confidence in some of the guys

    It's not ridiculous. We saw last year the Angels were very talented and the pitching sucked (Butcher) and we saw a lot of mistakes on the bases (Scioscia). Also a lot of inconcsistent batting lineups in April with Wells and Abreu playing over Trumbo

    This is not a well-coached team. That goes for Butcher and Scioscia. I know, I know...Spring Training, but..........

    Damn That was actually a nice throw by Conger. Andrus had a huge jump and is fast

    Is it a concern to anyone else how not fundamentally sound the Angels are?

    They would still be good if Profar and Olt breakout. They have some injury prone players, yes, but they also have 2 elite position prospects

    I am not looking forward to Pujols thinking he's faster than he is for another 9 years. It's only going to get worse...

    Stolen Bases

    Here's a nice article on some former WS winners that shows how over-valued this Mike Scioscia small ball thing is. BTW, we did not play very much small ball in 2002, so I don't know why Sicoscia became obsessed with it from 2003-2011. http://www.beyondtheboxscore.com/2006/4/8/113847/6122 Gives some nice stats
