Oh I know. Not having pre-season going on right now to distract me from baseball magnifies the epic fail the Angels did this season. The Angels signed the top two FA's this past off-season when the dire need was bullpen help as we had 25 blown saves last year. So this past off-season we got LaTroy Hawkins. That's it. Then at pre-season they picked up Isringhausen. Only when Frieri was traded for did he stabilize our bullpen up till All-Star break. After All-Star break, we got into another funk. Bad mojo.

But yeah, having Trout much earlier would have gained some wins. Sucks that the org wanted to keep Abreu around which forced to keep Trout in AAA. That's all coach Sosh's fault.
