Good Morning Angels fans! Stay hydrated and have some links!
The game well, ‘game’ was more like a ramped up batting practice of sorts but some nuggets came out of it. First, Mike Trout wore a mask when running the bases and that image has a card and a shirt already.
Joe Maddon has finally said that LASTELLA will see some time at first base. But what about Fletcher?
A number of Angels weren’t at camp, the confirmed ones that were not there are Teheran, Suarez, Rengifo, and Peters due to being on on the 10 day IL. Injured or sick., we do not know.
With less media interaction, interviews are odd and Fabian showed what the press conferences will be like this season.
Fans can’t be in the stands, but cats can, apparently.
Next ‘game’ is tomorrow, and will be 6 innings with Canning and Bundy. Please do not get hurt.
Fangraphs asks an important question, if Mathis is up after Trout, should Trout bunt? Thankfully we do not need an answer to that as Mathis isn’t on the team anymore. But still playing. Somehow.
PECTOA 2.0 time! Angels expected to go 31-29. And be in 3rd place in the AL West. Pretty good seeing how the Angels and Marlins have the toughest SOS.
A round baseball
Joe West is being Joe West again. But this time it is about not baseball.
Giants aren’t playing at whatever their stadium is called, because of issues with testing. Oracle/Att/Pac Bell what do you call that place?
Braves will discuss the Tomahawk usage. but they will still keep their name. Honestly out of all of them they are the least problematic. Also if they do not sing “And the home of the Braves” during the national Anthem they are messing up.
Expect to see better pitching as the video rooms can’t be used, which impacts the hitters as some spent all their time there.
Wilpons maty sell to Cohen after all. Guess they are desperate.
Manfred got mad about Mike Rizzo criticizing him over the pandemic. Maybe don’t suck, Manfred. Ever thought of that?
