Spring Training got off to a bit of a wet start, but games are happening at last. Tuesday’s game against the Reds begins at 12:10 P.M. Pacific time. Trout, Ohtani, Rendon, Upton and Pujols are expected to be in the lineup.
Angels related Links.
“Mortally wounded Penguin” Ha ha ha! What would you rename the Angels for one day? Hey! At least ZIPS projects us to have a winning record. Rhett Bollinger’s opening day roster predictions are here. No big surprises. Ryan Buchter didn’t suck and we already knew that Fletcher can play. Andrelton Simmons is trying to bounce back in his walk year (of course). So here’s a little bit of Trout porn.
From around baseball.
Madison Bumgarner is a very interesting guy. At least he’s not into professional bull riding. By the way, do you need a college degree for that? As if Rob Manfred and Tony Clark didn’t already have enough to argue about. A prediction of the MVP for each team (by WAR). So everybody’s doing it and therefore it’s OK. And so it begins for Jose Altuve.
This is not baseball related, but I know a number of you care about this anyway. Vanessa Bryant has filed a wrongful death lawsuit. I’d say her chances of getting a big settlement are pretty good here.
