5 Things the LA Angels need to do to return to the World Series
One thing the Angels always seemed to have during the 2000-2009 decade when the Angels made the playoffs six times in the decade they had a definitive leader who was well respected by everyone on the team. Guys like Darin Erstad and Tim Salmon then later guys like Bobby Abreu and Torii Hunter. In the past eight seasons the Angels have not had that kind of leadership with the exception of maybe Jered Weaver.

Nothing against Mike Trout or Albert Pujols but they are not the type of guys who will get into you if your not pulling your weight. This type of accountability is something I think the Angels need to put them over the top. This is an intangible that the Angels could use to finally get them over the top.
If Billy Eppler listens to these suggestions and puts them into action (with the starting rotation health which he has no control over) we could see the Angels in the post-season once again.
It could happen.
