Personality and Marketability
Francisco Lindor can be best characterized by his electric, white smile that all Major League Baseball fans can recognize. MLB continues to market Lindor in an excellent fashion. Not only is he one of the best players in the entire sport, he also happens to be one of the most exciting and cordial. Lindor’s background has always been one to root for. This type of dynamic athlete who can also grab headlines in a good way could be a welcome addition to an Angels clubhouse that is currently on the more boring side.
Having Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon on your roster are excellent from a baseball perspective, but they are more of the silent leader types. Lindor is a leader in a very different way, demonstrating that across his team with the Cleveland Indians. While Trout is inarguably the best player in baseball, Lindor has his own argument as the actual face of the entire sport.
The Angels would be creating a bigger draw for ticket sales in the future with Lindor in tow and it might even convince Arte Moreno to spend more in future off-seasons if he were to make up the revenue.
