Good morning Angels fans! Spring Training is fast approaching. We are almost there! Have some links in the meantime!
The Angels made a trade! For a pitcher! Welcome Aaron Slegers! Yes, as a reliever with only 20 games pitched at the MLB level, it is hard to know how good he really is. But, he is pre ARB and is freaking tall.
Perry also went for some MiLB depth, signing a minor league deal with spring training invite for Phil Gosselin. He is an infielder who was decent with the Phillies in his limited playing time the last two years.
Despite what Facebook has said, the Angels are NOT looking at bringing POS Roberto Osuna to the team. Once again, stop trusting Facebook, people.
PECOTA projections are out! They have the Angels finishing 2d in the AL West The A’s, Rangers, and Mariners have gotten worse while the Angels slightly improved maybe? Projecting 86 wins!
A player released by the Angels last year is trying to get signed, so his brother made him a highlight reel. The audio is enhanced, just a bit.
MLB Network has posted their Top players by position. Angels got 2 on the field, the only team with more than one.
Well looks like MLB has finalized the COVID Guidelines for this year. They are much stricter with contact tracing and fines for violations. Spring Training starts in less than 5 days, and a new protocol is to isolate yourself 5 days before Spring Training…
MLB is deadening the ball. By how much, no one knows. But is that proof that they juiced it? Manfred needs to stop this and just use the Japanese ball. It is safer too.
In game video is available in the clubhouses this year again. But this time, catchers signs will be blurred. So maybe that will stop the cheating?
MLB is also updating their harassments and discrimination policies. Took them long enough, now lets see them actually enforce them.
Prepare for Spring Training shenanigans as a team can end an inning before 3 outs in the first few games. They have to throw 20 pitches first, but that is barely anything.
