“More than that, I want to win.” Not nearly as well-defined or scathing as the translation makes it seem. Why are angels fans buying into east coast/Dodgers propaganda?
Next year, there are multiple options including a contract with opt-out clauses, etc. The deadline trade makes no sense because what we would get back would be MAYBE three decent prospects, of which, MAYBE one of them doesn’t spend the rest of their career in AAA. Even pessimistically, a 10% chance of retaining Ohtani is better than that. If you are serious about a rebuild, you would have to offload Trout and Rendon as well, which would be difficult to say the least.
