LA Angels Tuesday News Crash: Slow News Day

Photo credit: Rex Fregosi

News flash! Mike Trout is very good at baseball.  The White Sox avoid being virtually swept by the Angels in their fake MLB The Show season, winning Sunday’s game 6-4. 

David Ortiz invokes the “everybody’s doing it” excuse to claim that the Red Sox sign stealing punishment was not fair.  Boo Hoo!  Steve Dalkowski just died at 80 from the coronavirus.  This was the guy who was probably the inspiration for the Nuke Laloosh character in Bull Durham.  He actually did once hit a mascot with a pitch. 

Today’s Activities for the Bored

Make your very own Angels baseball card.  This is a .pdf file so you might be better at being creative using a vector program rather than a raster drawing program.  If you use the GIMP, be forewarned that the GIMP defaults to 72 dpi when exporting .pdf files so be vigilant with your settings if you want your printout to look decent.  The same advice goes for “Draw Yourself as an Angels Bobblehead.”  Of course you could always just print them and freehand something in there with colored pencils. Here is a silly Joe Maddon activity for all the stir-crazy shut-ins.  Here is Kierra Fletcher’s Roasted Cauliflower recipe.  It looks healthy.

For the record, I am NOT a television journalist, but I do inspire some, apparently.

Is the photo in “Make Your Own Angels Baseball Card” pants optional?

Sucky news. Craig Calcaterra on NBC Sports reporting Trey Mancini has Stage III colon cancer. Out for the foreseeable future for chemo. That bites big time. Get well, Trey.

Looks like Trey Mancini wrote his own article about it. He’s a decent writer:

Young and healthy and he still gets hit by stage 3 colon cancer. It’s shocking and sad.

Support FanGraphs if you can! An update from the founder today. I would say that we’re in a similar boat to them, in terms of PV’s. Rough time to start or run a baseball site, with March/April/May coinciding with what would have been peak traffic.
