Good morning Angels fans. Have some links to go with breakfast.
Joe Maddon is setting up David Fletcher to be the right fielder to start the season. He is planning to Zobrist him at the very least. Could be interesting and leaves Goodwin in shambles.
Ohtani has changed his batting stance. Leg kick is back. Hopefully it works this time.
Arte Moreno has stated that plans for the future of Angel stadium will be out this year. Not yet decided to fix the old one or build a new one. Rev has an article about where a new stadium may fit.
Manfred regrets not acting sooner. Riiiiiiiiiiiight. He regrets that people found out about the cheating he regrets that there was video evidence he regrets that someone got a hold of a private letter and he will regret that the rest of MLB will make his job even harder. Hoo ra!
One particular nugget was that Manfred blamed the Players Union for the Astros players immunity. Which makes him look like he is trying to get the discord enough to get more from the players in the next CBA.
Astros fans sue their own team over being lied and overcharged. I am no law expert but that seems to be damaging in the public opinion of the Astros more than what Manfred did. One even wrote a letter of disappointment.
Mark Cuban is throwing shade at the whole situation in MLB. This brings the question on what owner would be the one to oust Manfred? Is there one out there?
Giants show integrity by not letting a former player at their anniversary celebration of 2010 for being a POS.$ Even though he was vital for the team. That’s not the Astros way.
The Astros way is to keep cheating even after being caught cheating. Because that’s what one their pitchers has done after getting caught for PED use. Again.
Padres and red Sox still look to get a trade done after all. Will Wil Myers be in San Diego to start the season? Or will he make Sox fans even more confused on what their GM has done.
Red Sox will be punished soon how much is still unknown. But this is not their first offense which may mean something. Especially since the Astros backlash is immense.
Oh and Boston also signed former Angels catcher Lucroy. Less likely chance to be run over by Astros players out there.
The A’s have given up radio broadcast in favor of an app. As their own radio station was Giants biased anyway this was inevitable.
