The Los Angeles Angels Offseason Round Table Questions
1. What is your expectations for the Los Angeles Angels this season?
Joshua Lea (joshualeaa): The Angels will perform at a much higher level defensively than last season. I do see a Wild Card spot in their future. Although, the Angels will have to play consistent and remain healthy throughout the season.
David Rice (calfladave22): I feel the Angels will be much improved as long as they stay healthy. They have adequately addressed most every issue they had at the end of the 2016 season. They’ll be better at second base and the outfield, not to mention the addition of Ben Revere and Luis Valbuena.

Vincent Page (Vincentpage74): My expectations for the Angels is that they will be contending for a playoff spot by the All-Star break. GM Billy Eppler has done a solid job getting a roster together that can copycat the 2015 Kansas City Royals. The Angels have arguably the best defensive lineup in baseball going into the season.
Taylor Barney (laaoa48): It may be optimistic, but I expect the Angels to contend for the AL West Pennant. They’ve filled quite a few jokes in their roster during the offseason. They will still have one of the best players in baseball in Mike Trout. So, if they can all remain healthy, they can be a playoff caliber team.
Tyler Nelson (tylerjnelson1): My expectations for the Angels this season are relatively high. I believe they have the roster in place to compete for the AL Wild Card. However, the biggest question mark is their current rotation. If Garrett Richards can remain healthy and Tyler Skaggs proves he’s capable of pitching an entire season, the Angels can compete in the crazy AL West.
