    You can walk or drive past any major league stadium and figure out pretty quickly which players the corresponding team views as faces of the franchise.

    The Los Angeles Angels are no exception to that rule. At the main entrance to Angel Stadium, six large banners each featuring the likeness of an Angels player welcome fans to the ballpark every day, and the message is simply: "These are our guys. Take'em or leave'em."

    With that in mind, MLB.com points out that this season's Angels banners have undergone some major changes despite the team making few significant changes during the offseason. Of the six banners, only Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Jered Weaver remain from last season. Basic math tells us that means three banners were removed and three new banners were put up in their place.
