    @ #10: The firing of Billy Eppler by the Angels was long overdue. Maybe now they’ll get serious about improving their pitching.

    #8 #10 I appreciate Mike Trout’s loyalty, not something you see very often now adays, but at what point does his competitive spirit overwhelm his sense of loyalty and says I’ve had enough of the Angel’s incompetence in fielding a competitive team? Is the firing of Eppler the first shot? A lot of the pieces are there to get the job done. As much as I like Pujols that money is down the drain with nothing to show for it. Cut your losses and fill that roster spot with some quality pitching. Don’t wait too long Trout may be loyal to a fault but don’t expect him to wait forever.
    #7 On a team I loved to hate, Pence was truely, for me, fun and exciting to watch with his enthusiasm. Sorry to see him go.
    On a side note. I like Buehler, not Kershaw starting game 1. Blister or not I think Buehler is the better choice. Perhaps the “Ace” title has tarnished on Kershaw.
