Game 37 Open Thread: Angels at Phillies

Capture him! - Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

HE IS HERE

Loading Scores

Hey you guys hear about this Trout guy what's coming to Philadelphia? Well, he's here. Yep, here for...two days. The build up and homecoming narrative could fool you into thinking it'd be a longer stay, so I can forgive you if you thought as much, but sadly he will be here and gone again. For a longer term stay, we'd have to cast our gaze to 20...18? 2020?? Haha, good luck still being alive then.

But the good news is, Trout brings with him one of the most vexing teams you could possibly imagine. "Like a fantasy lineup" is a chestnut that's been overused with regard to the Angels, but it's not hard to see why columnists have wanted to lean on it: Pujols, Hamilton (who, admittedly, we won't see tonight), Weaver, Wilson. Hell, it's a team that should have won 100 games the past *counts* lots of years. Oh and don't forget Raul Ibanez (he of FHOFRI fame) who is sometimes-DHing for the boys in red. I hope he at least gets a small "RAUUUL" tonight.
