LA Angels News and Opinion

Here is Rhett Bollinger’s take on the top five international Angels prospects of all time.  Roberto Baldoquin did not make the list. Go figure.  Mike Trout comments on Teacher Appreciation Week.  Meanwhile, Joe Maddon comments on National Nurses Day. 

General Baseball News and Opinion

MLB is expected to submit plans to the MLB Players Association by mid-May concerning how to start up the season.  Here are the pros and cons of three scenarios for the reopening of Major League Baseball now that MLB is about to make an offer to the MLBPA.  Just when, though, will the season actually start?  Happy belated birthday to Willie Mays. 

The Stupidest Plan Yet

Yikes!  Sheryl Ring calls out a truly grotesque plan for the 2020 MLB season recently published in the Los Angeles Times by Bill Shaikin. 

Activities and Recipes for the Bored

A new activity: design your own Angels T-shirt here.  Here is an Andrelton Simmons coloring page.  I can see my red colored pencils are going to get used up pretty fast at this rate.  Here is the grilled cheese sandwich recipe from The Big Cheese in Angels Stadium.  I can’t eat the bread, but I am considering making one of these between a couple of corn tortillas; maybe with Swiss cheese and Canadian bacon eh.  Here is a nice virtual background from the official Angels Web Site.  Maybe I will change the wallpaper on my computer.

Maybe today’s post should be titled “Shaikin……….my head!” Why would anyone in their right mind want to give any notariety to the clearly moronic proposal that Fleiss put forth? I know it’s been pretty a lean time for “sportswriters” these days, but that idea doesn’t even make the cut for tabloid subject matter.

Great news and better than what the El Segundo Times can deliver.

What a jackass Mike Fleiss is although it is likely he was just trying to be funny. Without Shaikin publishing it, that idea probably dies and none of us ever have to learn about such a ridiculous thought (even in jest). So I put a great deal of the blame on Shaikin who probably is enjoying the attention and momentary ‘relevance’.

I don’t regret dropping my sub to LA Times a year ago. I wish I could do it again, right now, except that would mean I would have been paying them recently.

Sigh… remember when Jim Murray wrote for the Times? What the hell happened?

I know, right? I was just talking to my friend yesterday how I used to consume the Times hungrily every day, starting with the comics and then the sports section. But then, it used to be worth reading.

I have a fundraising idea — people pay $1/per toss to throw a baseball at the face of Mike Fleiss. The billions raised will go to COVID first responders.

How in AF can someone be so f—ing stupid?

Huh. Just when a lot of us came into an extra $1200.

A worthy cause worth a significant donation.

I don’t need to have my mind utterly boggled this early. What a douchenozzle. Bill Shaikin is a douchenozzle, too, for passing on this steaming heap of an “idea”.

I’m in, even though I won’t receive any stimulus money. Now, if you want to really raise some money, include Bill Shaikin and Mike Fleiss’ idiot sister Heidi.
