Good morning Angels fans! Have some links as we eagerly wait for the season to start soon.
Angels faced the Dodgers last night in an exbition game. It wasn’t taken too seriously as starters from both sides are pulled early and odd not finishing innings happened due to pitch counts and whatnot. Dodgers won 6-4. But then played in the bottom of the 9th. Because these games don’t count AND are weird.
Mike Trout wants that Gold Glove this year. Give it to him please.
Before the game, Ohtani almost hit one out of Dodger Stadium. Maybe show batting practice, would be better than whatever is on Fox Sports West at 4 pm.
Sneks were at Angel Stadium and thanked the team for their hospitality. Hi Kole!
Rendon was at Dodger Stadium but didn’t play. Maddon doesn’t have any more news on him beyond that.
The Astros faced another team for the first time in a long time. And their players got hit. How unexpected. And by unexpected I mean completely expected!
Jose Altuve got hurt in a different play. He limped off the field on his own.
Astros do not have a good day as their announcer has the virus. This is why Victor and Gubi will broadcast from Angel Stadium only.
How much do people miss baseball? The KC Houston game won in prime time ratings in KC.
Blue Jays still can’t play in Canada. So they are looking to play their home games in Pittsburgh. With all of NHL going to Canada to play it will be an odd sort of city swap.
Rockies first team to face Texas in their new stadium. Angels were supposed to, but then 2020 happened. They have a new stadium because their old one was HOT.
Josh Harrison was released by the Phillies. He is now a free agent. Just like Puig.
New York sports photographer died in April due to the pandemic. So the Mets put his cutout in their stands.
Padres having their behind the plate cutouts filled by people who are significant to the players. For the first series at least.
Rays lose a bullpen arm to Tommy John. Ow. That sucks.
T-Mobile does their customers a solid, gives them MLB.TV AND the Athletic for free this year. (Auto renew is on)
Players do a virtual Take me out to the Ballgame video. Once again, Arte isn’t doing enough with Troutani online.
538 2020 predictions. It is all anyone’s guess with the weird season.
Some Reds players kneel during the national anthem. One of which was Votto. Again, be civil in the comments.
MLB Opening Day starts at 4pm on Thursday when the Nats face the MFY at home. The first pitch will be done by Dr. Fauci. Angels start their first game in Oakland on Friday.
