KANSAS CITY, MO - APRIL 24: Albert Pujols #5 of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim advances to third on a Josh Hamilton fly ball out in the seventh inning during a game against the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium on April 24, 2012 in Kansas City, Missouri.
Of course, we all know what Albert Pujols can do with a pitch. The two pitches we'd like to have back were the slider to Iannetta and the Trumbo 3-0 pitch.
I thought Trout's home run was extremely impressive ... To take a pitch that far down and drive it over the center field fence as he did, and we know what Albert Pujols can do with a pitch. The two pitches we'd like to have back were the slider down the middle to Iannetta and of course, Trumbo on a 3-0 count.
You have to have an owner that's committed - not only to bringing in new guys, but also retaining guys ... I think people look for the big splashes like Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton and myself as free agents. But we saw Jered Weaver, Howie Kendrick and Erick Aybar get the long-term deals, and we also have guys like Mark Trumbo and Mike Trout who are going to be keystones of this organization going forth. Those things are essential as well. So Arte's going to do what has to be done.More quotes »
