Spring training, and more specifically, Picture day, is pretty awesome. Returning Halos, brand new Halos, managers and coaches; we get new pictures from all of ‘em, but not all photo day pics are created equal. Here are the best of the best of 2017’s spring training photo day.

John Lamb

On the weekends, he plays guitar and sings in a Fu Manchu cover band.

J.C. Ramirez

You know how I know Ramirez is a cool guy? Because he’s not even looking at the camera. That’s pretty cool, and I’m not even being facetious. I will do this from now on, in every pic.

Danny Espinosa

This beard is soooooooooo tuff. Matt Shoemaker’s beard has been put on notice. Look at that thickness! The volume! So picture this vestige of manliness turning double plays with...

Andrelton Simmons

...THIS guy at shortstop. These two, with their stone-cold killer mugs, combine to make the most savage middle infield in Major League Baseball.

Jesse Chavez

I like Chavez’s pic because it looks like they took it right as he was saying “pfffft” or “psssh”. Then that raises the question: What/who made Jesse Chavez go “pfffft” or “psssh”?

Cam Bedrosian

“Why is Scioscia going through my bag? Dang it, I wanted those Cliff Bars for the first snack break!!”

Mike Scioscia

Speaking of ol’ #14...here he is, in all his glory. How can you NOT love this guy? (ok, maybe don’t answer that...)

Kirby Yates

Look at this Fernando Rodney-lookin’ dude right here.

Cameron Maybin

This is just a good photo of our new left fielder. That Angels red looks good on ya, Cameron!

Matt Shoemaker

Shoemaker seems to be offering up the baseball to someone, like “hey, do you want this baseball, dude?” Makes sense, he always seemed like a nice, chill guy. The type that would give you a baseball.

Yunel Escobar

Esky rocking some blades? That’s as natural as rain on a Sunday morning.

Cody Ege

Ege looks really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really happy to be here.

Taylor Ward

“Heh...these guys took me in the first round.”

Mike Trout! Mike Trout! Mike Trout!

I was going to just put all of the Mike Trout pics here, because they are all awesome and the best and who doesn’t love new photos of Mike Trout?!?! But I’ll just post a handful of ‘em for now. I love Mike Trout.
