Dodgers Rumors: Mike Trout Wants Angels to Sign Max Scherzer, How LA Can Re-sign Mad Max!

Some things get better with age and Max Scherzer is one of them. At age 37, the NL Cy Young Award favorite is having one of his most dominant seasons in his illustrious 14-year career. Mad Max leads all of MLB with a 2.38 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, .174 OPP Avg. And that includes last week’s clunker in Colorado!

For Scherzer, his monster season comes at a perfect time as he’ll enter free agency having proven that even at an age where most pitchers are in the twilight of their careers, he’s still one of the game’s elite front-line starters. Scherzer has made it clear that he prefers the west coast and, according to Angels’ play-by-play broadcast Matt Vasgersian, all-world outfielder Mike Trout is lobbying the front office to sign Max Scherzer.

We discuss Vasgersian’s comments and if the Angels are a realistic threat to sign Mad Max. Plus, why signing with the Dodgers would be the best decision for Scherzer.

  1. hell no max won’t play for that loser angel team trout you need to be on a better team stop wasting your talent on that team

  2. Even with Mad Max the Angeles are 85 win team they don’t have the pitching to go around him with starting pitching and relievers or bats to score enough games to win . Max with stay with Trae Turner and over he next 3-4 years have multiple chances to win world titles because in the end Mike Trout you and your team are broken down and Artie Moreno should put a uniform on and be your bat boy !

    1. Yes Forget the angels. Stick with trea turner and the dodgers need to sign Seager and get the best attorneys to review Bauer’s contract so that they could find a clause and not pay him a penny. Also sign Taylor , keep Pollack long term and let go of Jansen. Might as well raise parking to $30 a car and charge $12.95 for a small Coke to help with the payroll

  3. Scherzie will be back with the Dodgers. You kind of have to feel bad for Trout and Ohtani playing for the crappy Angels.

  4. sorry Los Angeles Angels. You are not getting Max ! Trout and Ohtani need to flee the halos asap!

  5. Dodgers should be able to terminate Bauer’s contract, and by letting Kershaw and Jansen walk, there’s another $49 million in savings. That’s at least $80 million to dole out between Max and Corey. Letting Bellinger walk saves another $16 million or so. Plenty to sign a top notch closer. Lux can become a great center fielder with his speed, and if they can extend Trey Turner, this Dodger team ill remain Prime Time for many years.

  6. I guess MLB does Not have a tampering rule like the NBA if a player is under contract with another team, you can’t talk about wanting that player for your team such as Trout saying “he wants Angels to sign Scherzer.”
