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

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.

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.
