Good morning Angels fans! How have you been today? Things have been spicy outside, so have some cool links to wash it down.
So, Brian Haskin’s lawsuit was dismissed. You know, the guy the Angels threw under the bus for the whole pine tar mix selling scandal? Yeah, he tried to get some unlawful firing suit, but that was rejected.
$The Athletic surveyed MLB agents and Trevor Bauer is still likely to be an Angel or Blue Jay.$ Which, is really just dragging this thing out beyond reason, very annoying. I mean the only offer known is the Mets and they will not give him what he wants so this could take a while.
Free agent pitcher Spencer Patton threw for teams and hey, the Angels were one of them. Do not get your hopes up, as that is the way of the let down.
So the HOF voting by the writers has been revealed, and no one made it. The last time was in 2013. At least the ceremony this year for last year’s inductees is still on schedule. For now.
Hey look, a signing! JT Realmuto is a Phillie… for 5 more years at 115.5 Million. They add nothing since he was theirs, but at least that is over. Odd the Angels didn’t try with how Arte is.
MLB Network loses more talent as Eric Byrnes is no longer there after 10 years. Yet Mad Dog is still employed by them, why?
So that is why Brad Hand wasn’t picked up on waivers, his one year deal is deferred through 2024. Wow, that is just an odd move.
Masahiro Tanaka is going back to Japan. Want proof that MLB is being cheap? Here it is. This is a pathetic sign for MLB.
Blue Jays get Marcus Siemen, which gets him out of the AL West! Blue Jays got busy after getting second place a ton earlier in the offseason. 1 year 18 million was the deal.
Simba is now a Twin. One year deal 10.5 million. I will miss him.
Tommy LaStella is going to the Giants for 3 years. Lots of action now huh?
