Why the fuck did the PA agree to batter minimums for fucking pitchers?

They are DETERMINED to ruin the fucking game.

it's only going to be for a few weeks, and to be fair he was only hitting .150 for the spring.

Either way, I'm far less about trying to shame teams from doing this and instead hoping they focus on fixing the system in general.

for comparison though
Kris Bryant's line in 2015 spring when he was sent down for a few weeks


and Eloy's line this year


aka it's a little easier to justify saying that they want him to work on righting his swing for a few weeks compared to bryant who was being a monster in the spring and they sent him down anyways :P

I'm just happy that any sort of small possibility regarding Trout going to Philly can now be put to rest.

If he is worth more than 44.5 WAR, it's a win for the Angels according to Devan Fink. Might do that in five years. Crazy

Happy for Trout, it was a fun dream for 3 weeks that he could team up with Bryce in Philly. But this is as clear an indicator as there is that when you can get someone, get them. Do not wait for someone else down the road. So many Phillie fans were hung up on Trout, thinking it was stupid to spend money on Harper when Trout would come in 2 years. Well imagine the lawless hellscape of Philadelphia if they had passed on Harper only to be "jilted" by Trout less than a month later. Thank goodness we don't have to live through that nightmare.

Great deal for Trout and (despite it being a ridiculous sum of money), great deal for the Angels. Trout's the greatest player ever. The rules go out the window here.

Unless Trout has some epic Vernon Wells-esque drop off in his 30s that still a bargain for the Angels. Now quit doing stupid shit like the Pujios signing and put a good team around this guy, Arte you dumbfuck.

Yeah, definitely hope they put a better team around him and Ohtani. Would be sad to see two generational superstars wasted

Yankees fishing for potential major league contracts and the Angels signing 12 year deals to a generational talent. This is fine.

Trout is worth every penny, but it's going to be interesting to see if the Angels front office is capable of putting a winning team together. The Astros and A's are going to be good for a while. The Angels' farm system is ranked in the bottom third of the league. It's a damn shame if Trout continues to miss the postseason year after year.
