  1. Between this and his hilarious reaction to the LaRoche incident....not a good year for Sale. Looking more and more like a petulant baby
  2. Since May 21(11 starts) 76.1 IP 2.36 ERA 10.38 K/9 1.06 BB/9 88/9 K/BB ratio
  3. For anybody upset, newsflash, this is how the NBA has ALWAYS been. It's never been balanced or competitive. Every year there's 3, maybe 4 teams who have realistic title chances and then there's about 7 other teams who are fun to watch playoff type teams but have no chance at beating any of the top 3 teams. The other 18 or so teams are pretty much just background noise. Super teams will always be there and people will continue to watch to either 1. Watch that super team demolish everything in their path or 2. Hope they crash and burn/choke I imagine there will be some kinks to iron out with this roster in the early going. Everybody has to get a feel for one another before they get things figured out, but once they do they'll be disgusting. I just don't know how you defend this team. Not even the HEat big 3 could shoot it like this Warriors group. They're gonna just pepper teams with so many 3's.
  4. Can't stop MOZGOD
  5. my god that Mozgov deal LOL. Why on earth did the Lakers rush to throw that kind of money at him? They didn't waste any time scooping him up for a ridiculous amount like the market is dry of middling backup centers. Could have easily waited things out.
  6. They'll keep him for at least the next 3 years and then evaluate things. HAving a player who provides consistent 8-10 WAR makes things a bit easier when filling out a roster.
  7. Sounds like his arm will be amputated
  8. Excellent news as he was around 235-240 lbs during his good seasons. This puts him well on track to being around there once training camp begins in July
  9. Pretty much. CHances of him pitching next season were low anyway....best case scenario he gets a handful of starts at the end of next season I think he's just delaying the inevitable but I'm not gonna fault the guy for taking every possible step he can to avoid having to get such a big surgery.
  10. No more excitement since he's just being his usual great and productive self that people have seen since 2012. Not much to discuss unless of course he's in the middle of a slump. New prospects or breakout players usually get all the pub because it's owners who are enjoying the ride of owning that player during that breakthrough I think he will be getting major hype once he gets dealt to the Yankees. His numbers will skyrocket playing for a real ball club. Aren't you a decently well known troll on these forums? Besides, the Angels would need a whole bunch of prospects back, which the Yankees don't have. He'd be going to a team like the Dodgers, Red Sox, Braves, maybe even the Rockies (oh god that would be ridiculous for fantasy). But that's all irrelevant because he's not getting traded. Yes they are, which is why I completely skim past any of their posts

  12. They're in a really tough situation with horrible contracts to Pujols and Hamilton but at least they get Wilson and Weaver's contracts off the books so they'll have some money presumably but with Heaney and Richards probably out for most, if not all, of 2017, they're sort of dead in the water until 2018 unless they get really creative and figure out a new paradigm. Maybe the go out and get a couple of stud relievers, some cheap inning eaters and try and shorten the game next year and rely on defense and Trout. It'll be a test for management. This season was the worst of the bunch with the contracts with well over $90 million committed to Pujols, Hamilton, Weav, and CJ. They'll be clear of close to $50 million after this year, and the Hamilton disaster and Pujols deal are the only ones remaining standing. The Pujols deal is the only real stinker from 2018+ but I mean pretty much every big market team has one garbage contract on the books so it shouldn't hinder them in the slightest. Got to think the injuries can at least signal to the FO to focus this season and next to simply just playing the waiting game. Clear off those investments, don't make any big commitments on a team that won't be contending. Look to 2018 as the year for legitimate playoff hopes and then likely get involved in the great FA of 2019 that our grandkids will tell their grandkids about. All the talk of trading away prospects. Besides Newcomb..most the guys they pawned off were not really high impact. Clevinger MIGHT be someone they regret letting go..but that is about it...They really need to overhaul whatever prospect valuation tactics they have. Its great that they got trout and all..but its been like the entire scouting dept is still weening of it... They hit on Calhon in 2010 and between him and Newcomb really Cron/Clevinger are the only ones that stand out.. Bingo. The issue is that they just haven't put in the money and resources to beef up their scouting department. In the draft, they have opted for low ceiling, safe floor college prospects and they've largely been non-existent in the international market. The whole structure needs an overhaul and perhaps it's already heading that way with a new GM(I don't know for sure though)

  14. Well now it looks great that the Angels didn't blow more wasted dollars at FA's this offseason in what was gonna be a lost season anyway. WOOO!
  15. No. They got him under contract for 5 more seasons ffs. You don't entertain the thought for at least the next 3 seasons
