With Joe Maddon going back to his first coaching stop in L.A. Will Mike Trout finally get the help he needs? The talent is there for Maddon to help Trout. Let’s not forget he lead the lowest payroll Rays to the World Series and the 108 year drought with the Cubbies.
I like the talent the Angels have, not just Trout but with Ohtani, Juston Upton, Justin Bour and Cole Calhoun. If they could add a few good arms added to their pitching staff to go with talented players Hansel Robles, Pena and Heaney, they could contend in the AL West.
I think Maddon’s the perfect hire for the young talented base team the Angels have. A piece here or there to fill in some weak spots like catcher and third base will go a long way in Maddon’s success. It’s my belief you give Maddon 3 years and he will have the Angels as perennial division leaders.
