re: 2012 GIANTS...TROUT >
Two shockers: the Angels and the Reds. I think the Reds are just starting slow and will repair it but LAA... I'm not so convinced that they can turn this around. All of their players are the same prototype. Morales, Trumbo, Pujols, Wells, Hunter, Abreu... they all do the same things. Nobody will incite energy, do the little things, or move runners along. There's very little/no speed on the roster and I don't know if Scoscia is used to that. Time for the Angels to call up Trout and think about moving Abreu or Hunter. God knows they can't get rid of Vernon Wells and his contract.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time.
