The good, the bad, and the meh - New guys good - old guys? Not so much

I’ll cover the entire 40 man roster and will split it between position players and pitchers (generally 20 or so guys on each list). Each week the list will change based on the past week’s performance - but also taking into account their performance year to date.


Mike Trout may be heating up against after Sunday’s game, but too little too late. Sure he’s still good at getting on base, but he was out slugged by most of the team again this past week and only had 1 RBI. The rest of the team? Not much netter. No one had an average above .300 though we did see some good on base numbers like the .440 from Kole Calhoun.

The Angels only scored 18 runs last week and 4 OF THEM came from 4 SOLO home runs by Justin Upton. Ouch.

New acquisitions Brandon Phillips and Justin Upton accounted for 5 of the team’s 7 home runs and 8 of the team’s 16 RBIs. They also had 7 of the team’s 18 runs.

These rankings were compiled with the help of MLB stats, FanGraphs, misc. data, personal opinion, scribblings on Cam Bedrosian’s Five Guys wrappers, and some fairy dust I found hidden in Matt Shoemaker’s beard.
