Good morning Angels fans! Have some links.
The Angels faced the Padres last night. They won somehow. I blame Stassi. Still need to win out and hope for a miracle to make the playoffs.
Simba has opted out for the rest of the season. Officially it is personal matters, but with how close he is to free agency, his injury luck, and how the Angels will not make the playoffs, it makes financial sense.
In case you missed it, Rev Halofan has written about Simba’s Angel legacy. I will be honest, if he doesn’t come back, I will miss him.
Speculation of Billy Eppler leaving has ramped up. His replacement has been speculated to be Dave Dombrowski. Whoever it is, they will have to deal with Arte Moreno as an owner, and insiders have come out to say that the Angels GM job isn’t good.
It is clinching time, as the postseason spots are being officially nabbed. The A’s, Dodgers, Padres, Cubs, Yankees, Braves, White Sox, Twins, Rays, and Cleveland are already in. The Astros are close to claiming one, which doesn’t sit too well with Baseball fans.
The 2021 Draft order is not official but it seems to just take 2020 standings into account. Top 10 pick for the Angels is secured!
A Pirates Prospect has been arrested for allegedly killing 3 people in the Dominican Republic while drunk driving. Seriously people, DO NOT drink before or during driving.
An Astros pitcher drilled Mariners Dylan Moore in the head. It is the second time he got hit in the head the last 7 days.
MLB Players are voting on Players choice Awards. Maybe Mike Trout can win this one.
Quality of Pitch Baseball is attempting to patent their statistic. It is not going over well with the baseball community as $the Athletic explains$.
Anything I missed? Post below for upvotes!
