Stay safe out there, Angel fans. And have some links inside.
Cubs owners are mad that people say that they horde cash. It would be a more sympathetic statement if they opened their books.
Minor league baseball is in danger but at least 28 teams have said they will pay the players through June at the very least. The A’s won’t and the Angels aren’t revealing yet. The Angels have the opportunity to do the right thing!
Because of the owners being cheap, the 39th overall draft prospect has decided to go to LSU. Expect similar decisions to fall.
Racism is still an issue. The players make that clear. And a reminder that Torii Hunter was held at gunpoint in his own home by a cop and was told by the Angels and his agent to not tell people because of the potential backlash. This was back when he was still on the Angels.
Dale Murphy’s son was shot in the eye with a rubber bullet. These bullets are generally intended to be fired at the ground, causing a ricochet, so the fact that he was shot in the eye is disturbing.
The players and owners agreed on one thing. If baseball returns this season, it will be regional. No AL. No NL. Robo fans only, baseball 2020.
New proposal by the owners. Full prorated salary but only about 50 regular season games. Oh and expect an expanded playoffs. Blame Manfred.
Anything I missed? Sorry to be such a bummer right now. Hopefully the season starts soon.
