Beckham sleds with his father. Here is a little clip of Mike Trout playing in the snow with him. Joe Maddon had a wide ranging Zoom interview. It sounds like Shohei Ohtani is progressing in the right direction and the Angels are looking to add at least two starting pitchers this off season. While the Angels were seriously going after James McCann, they appear willing to go with Max Stassi and Anthony Bemboom if it comes to that.
Meanwhile, Jo Adell is going to AAA for sure. Joe Maddon said unequivocally, that he needs more time in the minors. We will probably see some sort of free agent stop gap outfielder get hired this winter. ESPN will open its season of Sunday Night Baseball with the Angels hosting the Chicago White Sox on April 4, 2021. This week is Jered Weaver week in our top 100 Angels series. Get your anecdotes ready. Last week, of course, was Brian Downing week.

Man! Keep an eye out for those Honus Wagner cards. The Reds are discussing trading Luis Castillo. I can see no word of which other teams are discussing him. 90 to nothing with nobody out in the first inning must have been soul crushing for the pitcher(s). Supposedly, MLB currently plans to play a full 162 game season in 2021. That could change, though.
