I think too Hunter could be back next year. He's still can play and he is a mentor to the young players.
Guys on the bubble will be Wells, Bourjos and Calhoun.
You're right it will work itself out. What ever is decided will be a tough call most likely.
"This kid is the best thing that has happened in Anaheim since Disneyland."
A short list of Great Happenings in Anaheim:
1955 Disneyland opens1959 Five year old angelfanpdx moves to Anaheim 1966 Angels take up residence in The Big A1979 Angels win AL West title1986 Wally World1995 angelfanpdx moves out of Anaheim (good riddance!....LOL)2002 Angels World Champs2011 St. Michael of the Holy Trout makes MLB debut2012 Trouty World
That list was obviously done in chronological order.
#2 on the list should be #1 with the others somewhere in the distance.
And to think what will he be like at age 25? What we are seeing is hard to comprehend for a 20 year old. He's better aleady that most ever get.
"Mickey" Trout has made lemonade out of the early season lemons that were so abundant.How sweet it is.
Nah, all they have to do is replace Hunter with Bourjos in 2012, with Calhoun as the #4 outfielder.
1 - Trout (LF)2 - Bourjos (CF)3 - Pujols (1B)4 - Morales (DH)5 - Trumbo (RF)6 - Kendrick (2B)7 - Callaspo (3B)8 - Aybar (SS)9 - Wilson/Hester (C)
Not sure about the bottom three.
"1959 Five year old angelfanpdx moves to Anaheim "
Same year charlesangels is born in Compton.
"If only Dipoto can somehow get rid of Wells and his phat contract. "
Maybe if he includes Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo?

Was Wells cut?
And if Bourjos finishes this season with a .550 OPS, do you still pencil him into the 2 hole next year?
Ooops, sorry, meant 2013.
Uh, we all WISH Wells would be cut, and YES, you pencil Bourjos in. Even Pujols knows the Angels future is Trout/Bourjos/Trumbo.
Funny, I didn't catch the 2012 typo. I already knew you were referring to next season.
Hate to break it to ya man, but Pujols is going to say good things about all his teammates.
