Angels outfielder Mike Trout has been named the AL Rookie of the Year by the Sporting News. Trout got 88 of 92 votes. Yu Darvish got 2 and Yoenis Cespedes got 2.

Looks like Hank Conger now has a clear path to the back up job for catcher. Also what is it with the Jays wanting bad Angel catchers?

Kaleb Cowart in the Fall League

Keith Law, on the two games he watched Cowart: Kaleb Cowart (Los Angeles Angels) has been the most impressive prospect overall through these two days, showing great, quick hands at third base along with a plus arm, and good bat speed resulting in some hard contact. A switch-hitter, his left-handed swing does leave him vulnerable to changeups because he loads his hands so deep, pulling them way back even as the rest of his weight is shifting forward, and he has struck out at least twice against right-handers who fed him two-strike changeups.

And exactly what, pray tell, was it that Rodney "came back" from? Broken leg? Debilitating disease? Catastrophic flooding in his native DR? Uh, no. Apparently the MLB officially congratulates Rodney from "coming back" to baseball after spending a year under the guidance of Mike Scioscia.

ARod-to-the-Angels nonsense debunked

Bob Nightengale in USAToday opined in his column http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/2012/10/17/alex-rodriguez-yankees-alcs-benched-trade-nightengale/1639977/ that the best trade partner would be the Angels, sending Vernon Wells to the Yankees for ARod and a truckload of offsetting cash. But the link in the above title provides some nice perspective from the Yankee fan POV. I don't see Dipoto taking on that deal, especially since we've already penciled in our own aging and overpaid DH for 2015 and beyond.
