The Angels beat the hapless Mariners 2 to nothing on Wednesday. There is no game today. This Friday the 6th features a doubleheader against the Royals, with games beginning at 12:05 P.M. PST and 3:35 P.M. PST. Jose Suarez is scheduled to pitch the first game and Julio Teheran is scheduled to pitch the second game, which is a makeup of the February 22nd game.
Griffin Canning’s elbow remains a mystery. He seeks a second opinion today. I prefer to hope they said “We can’t see anything wrong with the elbow.” and Canning said “But it feels like crap. I’m getting a second opinion.” Obviously, it could be that they told him it’s time for the knife. Billy Eppler says he is not looking to add another starting pitcher (grumble grumble)…Castro, Bundy, Teheran, and Andriese have been impressing their new teammates...Is Mike Trout’s excellence boring? Not for Angels fans…..Mike Trout is “fine,” by the way. (He was plunked twice yesterday.)
News From Around Baseball
Christian Yelich extension analyzed. Kole Calhoun is having a pretty good spring. Pete Alonso has officially used his F-bomb for March. I wonder if this will cool off the trend about microphones on players….. Trash can autographs will probably become a thing in 2020…. A little something from the Bureau of Funny Windups.
More Elbows A’poppin!
Idiot gambler threatens to behead players. Meetups will fall by the wayside as the corona virus scare grows. I know a lot of people who make a living selling art at conventions and they are on high alert going into con season. The players may be a bit more aloof about autographs for the same reason. More on that here.
