    they have had 2 chances already what if they make it and lose again you would want them in 2013? enuf already
    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

      Who cares how many times they've lost? If I like a team I'll pull for them to win. Better them in the World Series than the Yankees or Red Sox. I can't say I'd get too excited over the Angels either. I've already seen them win a World Series.

        With the Halos luck he will implode on them.

            Fox's Ken Rosenthal said that White Sox GM Kenny Williams was furiously working to get Greinke. But to get a deal done, a third team needed to be involved and he couldn't find a partner.

              Three chances in a row is alot, but they got so close last year that I cant help but pull for them this year.

                Wow thats kinda good news because maybe he'll go after somebody else. I'm surprised the Sox are even going after players with how bad attendance has been.

                  Agreed. They're buildining their team the right way. Good farm system and dollars to spend to fill spots. It's very rare that you see a team 2 years into the post-season still have two top minor leauge players that other teams covet.

                      Honestly, if Josh Johnson or James Shields is moved, I think the ChiSox are the team to get them.

                          Amazing how anemic the Angels offense becomes when Trout's not in the lineup.

                          EDIT: That's not a knock on Hellickson - he pitched really well. But Trout is definitely the spark on that offense.

                            Meh helly had a perfecto going into the 4th or 5th. Trout is great but he is hurt and probably more hurt then they are leading on since they didn't even PH him.

                              By the way helly was throwing up in between innings and still outpitched him.

                                some things never change
                                Didn't it change with the very same player when the Brewers got Greinke before 2011?

                                And the Marlins/Mariners can both be bad without the guys they traded. I was a Hanley apologist but now he doesn't have the results he used to.

                                DB: Isn't he in Japan right now?
                                JM: I don't know where Lou is right now. He's probably fleeing the authorities [laughs].
