WE'LL NEVER FORGET YOU ALFRED!
I love how quickly he's going to disappear into irrelevance in LA.
Kobe is God there, Dwight and Nash will be close behind. Hell, then you have Paul and Griffin that are probably ahead of Pujols in terms of sheer popularity.
And LA remains a Dodgers town, so I gotta think Kemp is ahead of him and if A-Gone comes around next season and the Dodgers take off, he'll fly ahead of Albert as well. Kershaw could also.
On his own team you've already mentioned Trout. He's pretty damn lucky that the NHL is going on strike and the NHL is a niche sport otherwise he'd probably be a lesser light than Jonathan Quick.
!@#$ him - it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. But don't worry, 'bert - Arte will make sure to go get Carlota and all the rest of those loyal Angels fans another couple of shiny baubles to keep them distracted in the off-season.
