TEMPE, Ariz. -- Here's a number that went overlooked for the Angels last season: Eight. That's the amount of hitters who finished with an above-average adjusted OPS. It encompassed every starting position player, making the Angels one of 40 teams in history to have eight guys with an OPS-plus over 100. In short, their lineup was deep. Plenty more than just Mike Trout.
And that brings us to perhaps the biggest question they face this season: Is the offense still elite?
