Mike Trout 20 year deal
I actually still stand by my comments in that thread!
i have no problem keeping K-MO for the year then letting him walk and getting draft picks back, we have given up quite a few draft picks the last couple years and were going to need to get some back.
Also, Vegas has LAA at 15-2 odds to win the world series.
what does everyone think of Rick Porcello, I know that he is expendable.

rather have Brian Wilson anyways
The Future is NOW!
Thoughts on Hamilton. Seems to never stay healthy, puts up monster numbers, played in hitters park. What will we get? Hope the cooler weather helps keeping him from breaking down, the same end results on the numbers, but over more games played. Something like 290 40 120
Not that I want to trade Morales, but trading him makes the most sense.In the wake of the Josh Hamilton signing, Kendrys Morales could be a good fit for the Rays as a switch-hitting DH with power and on-base skills. ESPN's Jim Bowden reports (on Twitter) that multiple AL teams are "in play" for Morales.
He is a free agent after the season. We are not going to re-sign him. He is going to cost the most in 2013. Trumbo was better than him last season. We need cost controlled guys going forward when Pujols/Hamilton/Weaver/Wilson are taking up one half of our payroll.
If the Rays would do something like Alex Cobb or Chris Archer for him I would probably pull the trigger
Can Hamilton actually play right field? And I'm starting to have my doubts about trading Kendrys. It was reported earlier this off-season that he's getting in better shape and I think, being that it's his contract year, he'll likely have more incentive to perform at a premium level. His trade value is low right now and I think there's a chance he could end up being a player we would offer a qualifying offer to next year. Not that we would necessarily try to re-sign him, but we could get draft pick compensation for him. As much as I hate it, I think Bourjos is the right person to trade. If we trade him we wouldn't have to move Trout or Hamilton out of their primary positions. Additionally, I think Trumbo and Morales are better fits for our current lineup.
