I suspect Peter Bourjos as the better of the Angels' prospects, the others being Trout and Conger. He has solidified himself as a speedy center fielder with a .280 average and an ability to steal bases.
Mike Trout is called up and splits time with Hunter in the outfield. Trout is given a gem in Hunter as a mentor. Trout also becomes a tremendous glove in the outfield and continues to improve his plate discipline.
As for Conger? Conger will go through some of the blues of being called up too early in my opinion. But this isn't to say he's not a step up from Jeff Mathis and Bobby Wilson. His arm is much better and he shows encouraging signs at the plate.
Torii Hunter surges in his final season with Anaheim. This is to prove he can play out another one or two-year deal elsewhere for a contender. I suspect he'll retire, but would not be surprised to see him in another uniform come 2013.
Bobby Abreu hangs it up as quietly one of the most unsung stars of his generation.
Mark Trumbo starts at first base and continues to rise as the Angels' franchise face on offense. Trumbo sits in the middle of the lineup and learns to hit with average. He also surpasses 30 home runs and 100 RBI.
So much of me wants to say Trumbo's improvements are related to the health of Morales. But we'll see. He is as much a mystery to me as he probably is to you.
I don't think both Erick Aybar and Howie Kendrick will be with the team in 2012. Something in me believes the Angels will package either Aybar or Kendrick in a deal for a player like David Wright.
The improvements at third base will be the main reason Trumbo improves. But I hope I'm wrong once again and that improvement is due to Morales being healthy.
I believe the Angels will get better offensively as they learn to gel and players like Vernon Wells bounce back. This improved run support means an even greater dominance from their big three: Weaver, Haren and Santana.
Haren will show he can pitch for a few more years and Santana toys with his first 20-win season of his career. The Angels lock up Santana in 2012 and as for Haren, it will depend upon his asking price.
