The annual Winter Meetings kick off today, so here’s a place to discuss all of the action

Christmas day for Angels fan is here! A flurry of transactions is about to occur in Orlando, Florida over the next four days as the Hot Stove has officially been kindled after the Angels signed Japanese megastar Shohei Ohtani and the Yankees acquired the reigning NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton. This is the worst time to have finals, ugh.

Anyway, this gives Halo fans a chance to talk everything baseball while we bask in the afterglow of the Ohtani signing. While Eppler is certainly in our good graces, he still has his work cut out for him while he continues to build around Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. We could very well see second base solidified and one of the corner infield spots filled. Lesser positions like the fourth outfielder spot, utility infielder, and backup catcher could also be addressed. Time for the finishing touches.

The Angels have a ton of potential energy stored up in a core of Trout, Ohtani, Andrelton Simmons, Justin Upton, Garrett Richards, and Kole Calhoun, time to make it kinetic.

So without further ado, let’s have some fun talking baseball.
