On paper, Ron Washington is a good hire. He's coming into a difficult position and his age could be a detriment, despite past success. This division is going to be very tough, and the Angels will be looking up at three other teams that will provide a dogfight for number one.

Wishing Ron good luck, but this ride will not be easy.

And Grandstander's last post on the thread (four posts before yours) made me chuckle and smile .

Good grief. Mike Trout has a torn meniscus in his knee, requiring surgery, but it isn't yet known if it will end his season.

Yahoo news has the story:

Quote:
Trout subsequently spoke with the media, fighting back tears and calling the situation "frustrating." He said he wasn't quite sure when he sustained the injury but recalled an awkward moment while running off the field:

Quote:
"It's crazy because I look back, and I don't even know when I did it. Third inning, after the inning was over, I was running into the dugout, and I felt a little ache in my knee. Not a serious ache. I was like, 'Oh, that was weird.'

"Didn't think anything of it. I was hitting and running, didn't feel nothing. Scored from second, nothing. Then it was just after when I did activity, I sat down, and I got back up. That's when I started feeling it."
Even if Trout comes back this season, the development is a massive blow for both him and the Angels. The three-time MVP is currently tied for the MLB lead in homers with 10 while hitting .220/.325/.541 for a team that entered Tuesday in fourth in the AL West at 11-18.

The team was already missing its other highly paid All-Star, Anthony Rendon, who will be out a significant amount of time due to a hamstring strain.
