Shohei Ohtani may end up being our opening day starter.  Meanwhile, there is no good news yet concerning Griffin Canning.  Here is an analysis of sorts concerning how the shortened season will affect the Angels.  This guy says not a single Angels starter amassed 100 innings last year.  How can he have forgotten Angels legend Trevor Cahill?  Billy Eppler thinks the Angels will be ready to play whenever the season starts.  I can’t remember if we already linked this.  The Angels have selected Ryan Buchter and designated Taylor Cole.

News flash!  Major league baseball stadiums will be empty today.  Apparently there are 30 games you can watch digitally today.  Facebook, Youtube, or Twitter; the choice is yours.  It looks like the Angels game is Mike Trout’s 5 for 5 game at Yankee Stadium.  Here is an update about what the MLB plans to do in view of the Coronavirus suspension.  Here are a bunch of bored baseball writers talking about ways MLB can experiment on baseball this year.  I guess it’s a good thing we didn’t trade for Thor.  Yet another minor league player tests positive for Coronavirus.  This time it’s a member of the Red Sox organization.  As always, if I have missed anything, please feel free to share it in the comments.

Just saw where Jimmy Wynn, the Toy Cannon passed away at 78. Not a Halo, but I loved watching him belt the ball. I wonder how he would stack up if he hadn’t spent most of his career trying to hit in the Astrodome.

CBS Sports simulation ruled irrelevant.

They’ve got our first game as a 9-2 Houston win with, get this, Ohtani starting and giving up 7 runs early. I guess they haven’t heard he’s out until May and today is March 26th. Or that Heaney would have started. This means their whole simulation (I’m guessing they’ll continue, day by day) is broken

Did the simulation include the Asterisks knowing the signs?

Even on replays, I still hate Joe Buck.
