Good morning Angels fans. Aspirin is good for the pain. Use them these days off. Anyways, here are some links.
Because of weather, there was a double header yesterday. Today’s game is moved to Anaheim next time the Astros are in town. The bad 7 inning kind. At least the Angels can lose faster that way. Which means there is no game today. Or tomorrow.
First game was a Suarez implosion. Didn’t get an out in the second. Only lost 6-3 somehow. Tommy La Stella hit a home run so that was nice. And Jaime Barria may be the second best starter on the roster. But Anthony Rendon lost his hit streak.
Second game was unusual. Joe Maddon decided to shake the lineup up again and Trout hit leadoff for the first time since 2018. This resulted in a 12-5 shellacking of the Astros. Not many hard hit balls though walks, situational hitting, and Astros miscues got runs on the board. The pitching was slightly better.
Oh, and Maddon got thrown out. Again.
Shohei Ohtani took some fly balls in the outfield and groudballs at first base. A RF/closer for Ohtani in the future may be how he salvages this two way player thing.
Trade rumors are flying due to the Angels sucking. Blue Jays looking at Angels players. Bundy is the most popular due to being a good pitcher. But Billy Eppler may be out of a job, so who knows what happens come the 31st.
Lucas Giolito of the White Sox has thrown a no hitter. Pirates had to show up the Angels somehow. Oh and White Sox OF Eloy Jimenez got injured celebrating...
Blue Jays 3B Travis Shaw is injured. Right knee. That isn’t good.
Jon Berti of the Mrlins walked, stole second, then third, then home in one inning. Now THAT is the baseball I love to watch.
Justin Bour is liked in Japan. Must be nice having fans in the stands.
Tips on how to not kill grass with tarps. Groundscrews need this for how bad it has been this year.
The Mets tarp gets blow away due to wind. Lots of tarp things this year.
J.A. Happ thinks Yankees are trying to get out of paying his option for 2021. Well, Angels need pitching so… Go get him whoever the GM is next year!
Kole Calhoun gets called out for intentionally getting hit in a rundown. I really miss him.
