Who are you pulling for this Spring Training?

With a handful of roster spots up for grabs, the Angels begin Cactus League play this weekend.  If you're anything like me, it's time to play a little armchair GM.  Each spring, there are always a couple of guys I really hope catch on to the big team or make a great case for some playing time.  I wanted to see who my fellow Angel fans hope make the team or move up the depth chart.  Here are my guys:

1.  Hank Conger -- Call me Captain Obvious, but he could be a difference maker for years to come.  I know I'm probably not going to get my wish, but this post is about pulling for a guy, not predicting outcomes. 

2.  Jordan Walden -- I would love to see the Angels develop a hammer at the end of the game.  Plus, I like my closers to be the kind of guy opponents don't want to charge on the mound.  A big 100 mph throwing Texan fits that bill.

3.  Alberto Callaspo -- He always seemed to play well against the Angels and I often thought of what might have been.  Well, now I get my chance to find out and I hope he pans out. 

4.  Scott Kazmir -- He's the big question mark in the rotation, and I think most of his problems are mental.  You can just see the guy getting frustrated on the mound.  A good spring could give him some much needed confidence.

5.  Mark Trumbo -- What's not to like about a homegrown slugging first baseman?  He could provide Morales with days off and take enough DH bats to keep Abreu's option from vesting.  I should have him higher on the list.

 

Those are mine.  Who are yours and why?
