Because the Los Angeles Angels have baseball’s best player in Mike Trout and one of the largest payrolls in the league, you’d think they’d be a powerhouse.
But they’re not. The Angels last made the playoffs in 2009, and their efforts to buy their way back into October with the recent signings of Albert Pujols, C.J. Wilson and Josh Hamilton haven’t worked. And after finishing below .500 in 2013, it’s no wonder they’re not being viewed as one of the American League’s elites.
They might be, however. If enough things go right.
MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer is here to talk about the biggest things the Angels need to go right in 2014. In particular, eyes belong at the top and bottom of their starting rotation, and on two big boppers in the middle of Mike Scioscia’s starting nine.
