Good Morning Angels fans! Hope you are staying safe. December means having people tell you how cold it is and seeing snow on tv for some reason. Anyway, have some links!
It is Nolan Ryan week here at Crashing the Pearly Gates! Someone who should have gone into the HOF with an Angels cap, but didn’t because of a stingy GM. I am so glad Mike Trout has that giant contract.
The non tendered deadline is at 5PM today, and the Angels have 11 players that need to be given a contract or booted. Vote yay or nay on the following.
The Orem Owls are moving to Colorado. They are a part of an independent league now so are no longer affiliated with the Angels. So far, the Angels only know their low A and AAA teams (or at least, very certain of).
The city of Fresno has had enough of Manfred’s ultimatums and has threatened to sue. This is because Rob Manfred wants to demote the Fresno Grizzlies to the California league.
Trevor May has joined the Mets. Well, there goes that option.
SP market is heating up, Gausman, Minor, Morton, Smily, and Ray are all gone. The Angels need to get a move on! Hey, where’s Perry?
The Atlanta Braves have teamed up with the Cherokee to promote the Cherokee language. See, that is going to help them with this whole issue of name and mascot. Take notes Cleveland…
Tony La Russa is has pleaded not guilty for his DUI. He is going to schedule a change of plea now. I am so glad he isn’t on the Angels staff anymore.
KBO star Kim Ha-Seong has not been posted yet due to paperwork issues. This posting has been known for such a long time, how do you mess that up?
Elvis Andrus is getting replaced by the Rangers next year. I would laugh but the Angels have too much going wrong right now.
With all the minor league baseball shuffling around, the Twins get the team in St. Paul, a team that Bill Murray is part owner of. No I am not kidding, the Twins have a MiLB team next door run by a Ghostbuster.
For those who said that the Nike Swoosh wasn’t going to escalate into ads everywhere on uniforms, well, MLB has requested proposals for sleeve and helmet ads. Rob Manfred really, honestly, truly hates baseball.
