Isn’t Trout a Centerfielder? I feel Jay Bruce is a little low.

Trout’s gonna play left this year while Bourgeois plays center. My bad on Hamilton, he’s changing outfield spots too.

Bruce gets hurt by the fact that he plays such a strong position. Can’s say anyone above him is a lesser player than he.

I thought it was RF: Hamilton CF: Trout RF: Trumbo…I see the Depth Chart that Trumbo is the DH

IDK who manages team depth charts on the official sites in the offseason, but they suck at it. I think it’s just left to some intern to guess in the offseason. But the team has implied it’ll be Trout, Bourjos, Hamilton. Of course Trout’s number one either way.

Hamilton is an Angel now…

Torii a Tiger too

Haha sorry I’m on four hours of sleep

No Josh Hamilton?
