Len Kasper is a great man, always love hearing his voice when I’m watching a Chbs game
unfortunately len Kasper is biased towards the cubs so no real answer except the cubs will win the world series will be the projected outlook. Kasper actually suggested trading mike trout figuring the angels wont win right now with him.
what’s wrong with suggesting it? The Angels could consider it, though they won’t actually do it. I mean, That roster’s looking pretty thin beyond Trout and the farm system’s a joke… Trading trout could bring back a huge amount of talent if the Angels decide to go the way a lot of other big market teams are going these days.
again, the Angels won’t do it because it’s just not possible to get fair value back for a player like Trout… but the Angels aren’t exactly favorites to win it all these days and competing in that division with the younger, deeper Astros and Rangers won’t be easy without a major overhaul of that roster.
