LA Angels Tuesday News Crash: Baby Trout

Mike and Jessica Trout are going to have a baby! So adorable! And Juno Trout finally gets a sibling…

Los Angeles Angels related links

The Angels will be visiting the Cleveland Indians March 3, 2020, and the game begins at 12:05 PST.

Yesterday, Joe Maddon reunited with his old club, but the final score was Cubs 9, Angels 4. Cam Bedrosian had an ERA over 23, and J.C. Ramirez had an even 9.00. It looks like Bedrosian is in midseason form.

Anthony Rendon has a very positive outlook for the 2020 season.  Here is a video of Joe Maddon discussing visiting his former team Monday.  Charles Barkley came to hang out with the Angels.  Meanwhile, The Sky’s the limit for Jo Adell.  And, of course, Mike Trout is number 1 in this projection of the likely MVP winners for 2020. 

News from around baseball

Current Major League players will not be allowed to play baseball at the Olympics, but prospects can if their Major League team allows it.  Major League Baseball is handing out a new rule sheet concerning just what constitutes cheating.  This concerns not only sign stealing technology, but a ban on doctoring balls with “engineered” substances.  I wonder if Trevor Bauer is engineering substances.  Trevor Bauer tells Dodgers Matt Beaty what the pitches will be and gets him out anyway.  

This is the latest news, if you can call it that, concerning the investigation into Red Sox cheating. In yesterday’s game, Rizzo couldn’t resist a trash can joke. 

Jose Bautista is hoping to come back as a two way player.  We’ll see how that goes…Maybe he will plunk Rougned Odor.  The Tommy John epidemic continues.  This time it’s a Mariner.  The Yankees continue to implode.  Vlad Guerrero Jr. jacks a laser beam into the left field stands.  Garrett Whitley hit by a foul ball in the dugout at the Rays/Orioles game on Monday.  He’s a minor leaguer so he wasn’t even getting paid.  They said he wasn’t bleeding much.  ($$) Keith Law’s annual ranking of all 30 minor league systems on the Athletic.  Harvard’s baseball team makes four errors on one play.  Cue Yakety Sax.  And finally, yet another woman breaking down barriers as Melanie Newman becomes the first female play by play announcer for the Orioles.

Surprised nobody has made a swim upstream to spawn Trout joke yet. Congratulations, Mike and Jessica.

I have to admit, the Rizzo/Bryant live feed with the broadcast booth while playing was pretty funny. They seemed to be enjoying it, and good one-liners. This is the kind of stuff you learn and hear when you’re close to a team, not usually heard by the public. Too bad MLB isn’t forward-thinking enough to adopt this kind of thing during the regular season.

Also, Rizzo’s BANG joke took the cake. That was awesome.

it was nuts that Rizzo predicted the fastball against Andriese. These guys are really really good at baseball.

It will be much harder to become a two way player thanks to Manfred.

Angels pitching prospect Chris Rodriguez looks to be back and throwing! Less whiplash in his head when he pitches, which was a big issue before (and looks to be under control now).

Good. We’ve been well under our quota for Rodriguii for the past several years.

I had to check for the tommy john twist, but it’s hard to tell. He holds his hand so low it doesn’t really look like he get a full tommy john twist in. Then again, I have no idea what good mechanics vs bad really look like.

After reading the projection of mvp winners this years, I’m just reminded of how many extremely talented young ballplayers are in the game today. It is truly exciting to watch so many young men play the game at such a high level

Just Cam doing his Cam thing. My kid just got home, had gone to change from his basebal gear and wash up, walks back into the room, sees the score, asks what happened, sees Bedrosian and says “Oh, Bedrosian”. This is from a 10 yr old.

I wasn’t watching/listening, so I can’t have an opinion, but I’m just hoping that Callaway was having him work on one specific thing that game.

Hey, Cam was doing pretty well last year! I think he’ll be fine this season. I choose to believe some guys mess around during Spring training. Like Ohtani swinging hard at everything, just for the hell of it.

I can’t wait to see that kid jump into Trout’s arms as his dad celebrates a World Series win.

Hoping Trout’s son will be a couple months old when Trout celebrates his first WS win. Spring Training optimism.
