The March 7th, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Trout's agent asked for $1 million, Weaver trying to recover his old arm angle and much more... The Story: Ken Rosenthal reports that Mike Trout's agent asked the Angels for $1 million for his 2013 contract. The Monkey Says: As the article states, that would've been the highest payday ever for a second-year player. Trout probably deserves it, but it takes balls to ask for that much. There is also conflicting reports claiming the Angels offered him more than $510,000 but pulled the offer when Landis refused to accept or, if you believe the side that clearly came from his agent, the Angels never offered more than $510,000. The Story: Jered Weaver is hoping to recover his old arm angle. The Monkey Says: He claims he got away from it in recent years because of the tendinitis issues in his arm, so that would suggest he must be over that discomfort if he is reverting back to the 3/4-angle. The Story: A look at how each Tommy John recovery is different. The Monkey Says: This has everything you ever wanted to know about hamstring tendons. The Story: The biggest sunk costs in baseball. The Monkey Says: You'll never guess who made the list. The Story: Mark Trumbo is ready for the challenge of becoming a full-time designated hitter. The Monkey Says: I still don't get why it is such a big challenge, but it sounds like Trumbo is doing his homework so that he isn't afflicted by whatever issues come with no longer having to embarrass yourself in the field. The Story: The Angels pitchers won't spend much time working on hitting and bunting practice this season. The Monkey Says: Thanks, crappy new interleague schedule. I wonder if that practice really helps anyway, even for NL pitchers who have to hit regularly. I can't imagine they expend that much effort in batting practice anyway, at least not enough to make a significant difference. The Story: Jose Bautista said in an AMA on Reddit that he believes that Jered Weaver is the toughest right-hander to face in MLB. The Monkey Says: That's some mighty high praise. It also explains why Joey Bats is 0-for-6 with a walk and four strikeouts against Weaver in his career. The Story: A look back at the history of the PCL LA Angels. The Monkey Says: So you are saying it was over half a century ago the last time the Angels had a good minor league team? [follow]
