The Angels went into their four-game series with the Angels this weekend at an even .500 but managed only to win on Sunday with Mike Trout out of the lineup.
The chatter around Trout has been his contract, which finishes in another two years, at the end of the 2020 season. That’s apparently near enough to garner this sort of attention at this time.
It could also be the idea that the Angels don’t have much anything else to focus on, long out of the race in the AL West and without much to look forward to on the horizon, especially given Shohei Ohtani’s elbow situation.
The talk is that Trout may get a lifetime contract. His numbers haven’t dipped in the least this season. In fact, his 198 OPS+ is his best ever. His OPS has been .939 or higher in each of his seven full season since becoming a big leaguer.
The A’s lost each of the final two games in Tampa Bay over the weekend to drop two out of three, fall further behind the Astros in the AL West and miss a golden opportunity to leap the Yankees in the wild card standings.
Hosting that play-in game would be a great advantage for Oakland, rather than going to Yankee Stadium. They are currently just 1.5 games back of New York, who hosts Boston this week.
Brett Anderson came off the DL on the 13th of this month and didn’t pitch well in Baltimore. He gave up seven hits and four runs in just over three innings.
The A’s have enough pitching to dominate a wild card matchup but the rotation is missing just a bit without he and Sean Manaea anchoring the staff, as they were before the injuries. Anderson will be a key piece to watch in his final two starts before the postseason.
