Angels reveal 2019 promotional giveaways

No Ohtani double bobble but there are other bobbleheads coming Yawn. January for a baseball fan. Ugh. Well, sleep no more! We finally have something to be excited about for 2019 - the Angels promotional schedule!! I remain convinced based off other teams giveaways that the Angels promotional team is really just just some kid throwing darts at a wall - or they don’t really care since 3 million fans are going to show up anyway. Maybe a bit of both. Let’s take a look at the items for this year. April 5th - Mike Trout Silver Slugger Bobblehead This one is pretty cool. Going...

2019 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings: Mike Siani is #12!

2019 Red Reporter Community Prospect Rankings: Mike Siani is #12!

The Future Mike Trout has gotta start somewhere. Are you excited? I’m excited. The Reds are doing some big things and offering a high potential youngster $2,000,000 to forgo college to play for them professionally is certainly that kind of big thing we want them doing. Obviously, comparing Mike Siani to Mike Trout (who is the greatest) is really stupid, but I’m going to do it because it’s fun. Baseball is suppose to be fun and wishing on prospects is pretty fun. I’m really looking forward to finding out where Siani will start the season. Here’s to hoping it’s Dayton. On...

Los Angeles Angels: Could the Stadium Deal Affect a Mike Trout Extension?

The biggest question regarding the Los Angeles Angels right now and in the near future is the possibility of a contract extension for Mike Trout. As most know, Mike Trout is only guaranteed to be with the Los Angeles Angels through the 2020 season. That deal just happens to coincide with the recent news that the […] Los Angeles Angels: Could the Stadium Deal Affect a Mike Trout Extension? - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

WeekEnd HaloLinks: And the Son Shall Shine Again

The rain has moved on (enjoy the storms, America!), and Mike Trout is still a Halo After dropping about 3 1⁄2 inches of fresh water on Angels Stadium this week, the sun is coming out to peek between the clouds and give us a respite. But the first of those clouds has already gotten sucked into the fractured polar vortex and is creating havoc from Chicago through Philadelphia all the way to New York and Washington, DC. Probably Millville, New Jersey, too. In effect, Phillies fans are about to suffer from Anaheim’s leftovers this weekend. I consider that to be prophetic. A sign from a...

Philadelphia Phillies have a Mike Trout dream for 2021

The Philadelphia Phillies have a dream for the future, one that involves pairing either Manny Machado or Bryce Harper with Mike Trout. We all have dreams in life. In my case, I dream of one day being something other than an alcoholic blogger who utterly detests his day job and is disappointed that he survived […] Philadelphia Phillies have a Mike Trout dream for 2021 - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

HumpLinks: No Mo’ Mike?

HumpLinks: No Mo’ Mike?

The winds of rumor waft the first hint of Trout’s camp rejecting any extension talk. Welp, here it is, folks. The winds of rumor bring to our hyper-sensitive noses the first hint that Mike Trout’s camp is not going to be signing any contact extension. This, just in time for the Phillies to figure out whether or not they really wish to commit at this time to BOTH Manny Machado AND Bryce Harper. If this turns out to be true, and that it ends up happening that Trout moves on to the FA market, and if the result is that he does not re-sign with the Halos, we will have a few touchstones in...

Phillies should not center 2019 free agency plans around Mike Trout

Why should the Phillies sign stars now when they can just get Mike Trout in two years? Well, for a few reasons, actually. Mike Trout. The darling of Phillies fans since the Millville, N.J. native took the league by storm in 2012. Once his affinity for the Eagles became public knowledge, combined with his hometown’s […] Phillies should not center 2019 free agency plans around Mike Trout - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Hittin’ Season #246: Waiting for Mike Trout is stupid

Are the Phillies really holding back on a Macharper contract to save room for Mike Trout in two years? As Phillies fans wait for the Bryce Harper/Manny Machado soap opera to come to an end, everyone remains inundated with rumor and speculation about the duo. Washington leads the Bryce derby! The White Sox are being aggressive! No, they don’t want to do more than 7 years! Wait, yes they do! The Yankees are going to get Machado, only the Yankees don’t want Machado! AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!! Random MLB writers, some of them national guys, some of them from New York, and almost none of them from...

Greatest Position Player(s) You Have Watched Play Live

Inspired by an exchange with Designerguy, I wanted to start a thread to hear stories of the greatest players the Halos Heaven faithful have seen play in the flesh. We are a dedicated group of baseball fans, and some of you have shared some great stories in threads here and there. Now, let’s here it. Who is the best you’ve ever seen live? No need to limit it to one player, either. Share a few if you have them, but limit this to position players. I will have a follow up for best pitchers coming soon. Mike Trout is an obvious answer for most of us in the Angels back yard, and he’s likely...

Los Angeles Angels: Enjoy Mike Trout while he’s still with the team

In the past few years during the Hot Stove season, questions arise regarding the Los Angeles Angels and the best player in baseball. Those questions usually involve how long Mike Trout will play for the Los Angeles Angels. The questions never involve whether he is the best baseball player on the planet.
