Billy Eppler’s Perspective on the Mike Trout Extension

Billy Eppler’s Perspective on the Mike Trout Extension

The Angels General Manager discussed the journey to this record-breaking deal “Today is a special day in Angels history. We’re extremely proud to say we’re keeping Mike Trout in an Angels uniform for the next 12 years.” These were the words spoken by Angels General Manager Billy Eppler, who was at the forefront of the negotiations that led to the largest contract handed out in North American sports history. Eppler, who has been at the helm since the 2016 season, is no stranger to making monumental moves. Trout’s extension comes a mere 15 months after the club signed two-way star...

2019 Angels season preview: Position by position

There's a new manager, a new closer and perhaps more depth to the starting rotation, but the core of the Angels' lineup remains Mike Trout, Andrelton Simmons, Shohei Ohtani (when he's healthy enough to hit) and Justin Upton.

Who might become the Diamondbacks’ Mike Trout?

Who might become the Diamondbacks’ Mike Trout?

Will any star player stay in Arizona for their entire major-league career? This week, Mike Trout signed an extension which looks set to keep him an Angel in the outfield until the end of his career. Also this week, rubbing salt into the wound of his trade earlier this winter, Paul Goldschmidt, signed a five-year extension with his new team in St, Louis. Every fanbase wants to have a “face of the franchise”, a player who spends his entire career with the team. But in these days of free agency, it’s harder than it looks, with most players following the money, understandably. Still, you...

The Dirty Inning: The Trout that got away

The Dirty Inning: The Trout that got away

Was this the game that Mike Trout watched in 1996 and made him never want to play for the Phillies? On August 7, 1996, the Phillies played a game on Mike Trout’s birthday and lost, 14-1. It was on that day, Justin and Trev theorize, on which the six-year-old Trout declared that yes, they were his hometown team and he loved them, but he would NEVER play for the Phillies. Cut to 23 years later, and Trout came through on that potentially fictional promise by signing a contract extension with the Los Angeles Angels. At the end of the day, all the Eagles game balls and self-assured Philly...

Angels 2, Diamondbacks 1 - Chilled Offense

Angels 2, Diamondbacks 1 - Chilled Offense

Cooler weather chills the bats at Salt River Fields Merrill Kelly hasn’t had the greatest debut for his new team, struggling with both control and his ability to get people out early on in Spring Training. Starts like these help erase some of the doubt that comes with poor performance. Kelly went 5 innings today, giving up just 3 hits and 1 run with 3 strikeouts to round out his outing. His only blemish was a 1-out double followed by a Mike Trout single in the 3rd to put the Angels on top early 1-0. He finished strong, shutting the Angels down in order to end his outing. He finished with...
